Pakistan appoints Qadir as new chief selector

The Pakistan Cricket Board on Thursday appointed former test leg-spinner Abdul Qadir as its new chief selector.
"Yes, we have appointed him as the new chief selector," PCB chairman Ejaz Butt told reporters.
"The other members of the (selection) committee will be announced shortly."
Qadir, 53, took 236 wickets in 67 test matches and also grabbed 132 in 104 one-day internationals before retiring in 1993.
Qadir takes over from former test fast bowler Salim Jaffar, who led the selection of the team that routed the West Indies 3-0 in the one-day series in Abu Dhabi last week.
Other former test cricketers who were appointed to the PCB after Butt took over last month from Nasim Ashraf include Salim Altaf (chief operating officer), Javed Miandad (director general), Aamir Sohail (director of the national cricket academy) and Wasim Bari (director of human resources).
