PCB Removes Wahab Riaz From Major Role Amid Disciplinary Concerns

Following Pakistan’s disappointing showing at the T20 World Cup 2024, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has initiated reforms. This comes after the team’s early elimination in the group stage with Babar Azam as captain. The PCB has started by overhauling the team’s management and selection committee, aiming to address the issues highlighted by the team’s underperformance. These changes mark the beginning of efforts to restructure and improve Pakistan’s cricketing strategy and performance in future tournaments.

The PCB has announced the removal of Wahab Riaz and Abdul Razzaq from their roles. Wahab Riaz, who served as the senior team manager, has been dismissed from both that position and his role on the selection committee. This decision reflects the PCB’s efforts to make significant changes following Pakistan’s disappointing performance at the T20 World Cup 2024, aiming to overhaul the team’s management structure for future tournaments.

This decision follows a tournament where Pakistan faced challenges right from the start. The team experienced a surprising loss in their opening match against tournament debutants, the USA. Despite securing victories against Canada and Ireland afterward, Pakistan struggled to defeat India and secure a spot in the knockout stages. These outcomes underscored the team’s difficulties throughout the T20 World Cup 2024.

The PCB has announced this as just the first step, with more changes ahead. They plan to introduce a new selection committee soon, responding to Pakistan’s poor showing at the T20 World Cup 2024. This move shows their dedication to restructuring team management and enhancing decision-making in cricket operations.

In an official statement released by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), board stated, “ The Pakistan Cricket Board today confirmed that it has notified Abdul Razzaq and Wahab Riaz that their services will no longer be required in the national selection committee setup. Abdul Razzaq was a member of the men’s and women’s selection committee, while Wahab was a member of the men’s selection committee. The PCB will provide further updates on the selection committee’s composition in due course.”

Wahab Riaz Aso Lost His Another Big Post:

After Pakistan’s disappointing exit from the 2023 ODI World Cup, Wahab Riaz became chief selector in November of that year, succeeding Inzamam-ul-Haq. Recently, Riaz resigned from the chief selector role but remained part of the seven-member selection committee. Abdul Razzaq was involved in both the men’s and women’s national teams’ selection committees until recently. He has also served Pakistan in coaching roles, including interim and assistant positions.

This decision follows the removal of Wahab Riaz and Mansoor Rana from their management positions. The PCB cited several complaints about their behavior, including disciplinary concerns, as reasons for their dismissal. Riaz, who previously managed the senior team during tours of Ireland, England, and the T20 World Cup 2024, will no longer serve in that capacity.
