Pakistan’s former Test captain Rashid Latif has refused to take over as chief selector just nine days after he was supposed to join the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Latif said he doesn’t want to “come into controversy” and will not join the PCB as chief selector.

Pakistan made an early exit from the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh when it lost to West Indies in the last group match.

Pakistan Twenty20 captain Mohammad Hafeez stepped down soon after the tournament, while short contracts of head coach Moin Khan and batting consultant Zaheer Abbas’ also expired.
