The history is made with the making of Moin Khan, who was coaching in Twenty20 World Cup and Asia Cup, Manager and Chief Selector at the same time.
This is for the first time when a person will be handling these two departs, with totally different in nature.
This is not enough, as Khan will also be the part Fact Finding Committee of the board, which will finalize and recommend head coach, bowling coach, batting coach, fielding coach and fitness coach for the Green Shirts.
The board sources say that appointment of one persons for selecting and managing the team is made to avoid conflicts which occur due to difference between selection committee and team management.
But former board official, Saleem Altaf, have an interesting point on it.
“Selecting and managing team are quite different things. How could a person handle these two things simultaneously.”
But Najam Sethi, the board chief, seems satisfied over the appointment.
Former batting consultant, Zaheer Abbas, who gave ‘special tips’ during T20 world cup, has been appointed as Principal Officer to the PCB chief.
