Haroon has been named permanent head selector. Previously, he served on the Shahid Afridi-led interim selection committee, which was only formed for the home ODI series against New Zealand.

A 14-member management committee headed by Sethi was chosen last December by PCB patron and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif to reinstate the board’s 2014 constitution.
For the home ODI series against New Zealand, Sethi named Afridi as the interim chief selector. The temporary selection committee included Haroon, Abdur Razzaq, and Rao Iftikhar Anjum. The PCB apparently wanted Afridi to continue once the New Zealand series was over, but the former all-rounder reportedly objected, citing personal obligations.

“I confirm the appointment of Haroon Rasheed as the new chief selector,” announced PCB chief Najam Sethi during a press conference in Lahore on Monday. “We don’t want to create any further misunderstandings. There was a lot of speculation. Haroon will get time to make his team and work for the betterment of Pakistan cricket,” he added. Haroon, who played 23 Tests and 12 ODIs, has resigned as a management committee member, said Sethi.
In the past, Haroon held the position of manager of the national team from 2003 to 2005 and top selector for the men’s national team from 2015 to 2016. Mickey Arthur will probably return to lead the Pakistani men’s cricket squad, according to Sethi.

According to rumors, Mickey Arthur’s lengthy contract with Derbyshire prevented negotiations with him from taking place. However, Sethi disclosed that he is in touch with Arthur directly and the talks are progressing as planned.
“I had not closed the chapter of Mickey Arthur. I am personally in negotiations with Mickey and we have resolved 90 percent of the issues. Hopefully, we will very soon give you the news that Mickey will be joining us,” Sethi said. “When Mickey comes back, he will make his own team. We will resolve the rest of the issues in the next one or two days,” he added.
