Shahid Afridi has announced his resignation as chief selector of Pakistan’s national team. He was appointed in May 2018 and is the first Pakistani cricketer to be appointed chief selector.

He started his playing career with them when he made his debut against England in 1992. He was selected for the 1996 World Cup squad but had to retire due to injury before he could play any matches for Pakistan during that tournament.

According to a PCB release, he has told the chairman he cannot continue in the role due to personal reasons

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi has said Shahid Afridi will continue to be a part of the board as director cricket operations until his duties on that front are completed.

“Shahid Afridi will continue serving as Director Cricket Operations,” Sethi said in a release issued on Friday. “He has informed me that he cannot continue in this role due to personal reasons.”

He also expressed gratitude towards the PCB for giving him an opportunity to play such a role in cricket.

The board has yet to decide on his replacement. “Shahid will continue as director cricket operations until his duties are completed,” said a PCB source. He will not be a selector in the future but will stay on board as director cricket operations until the time his duties on that front are completed.

The national selectors have already picked up Azhar Khan from working as assistant coach at Shoaib Malik’s academy in Lahore to replace Afridi who quit after completing two years in charge of Pakistan’s national selection panel which includes former Test cricketers Mohammad Yousuf and Javed Miandad among others

Afridi said he would like to thank Mr Ejaz Butt and the PCB for giving him an opportunity to play such a role in cricket

I would like to thank Mr Ejaz Butt and the PCB for giving me an opportunity to play such a role in cricket.

I want to thank my teammates, who have been with me throughout my career and made it possible for me to remain as one of the best all-rounders in world cricket.

My thanks also go out to all my fans who supported me through thick and thin, especially during difficult times when they had lost hope because of poor results on the field but never gave up on their team’s cause or player performance!

He is quitting within six months of taking over and will be replaced by former Test player Azhar Khan.
