Pakistan selectors resign
March 20, 2007 19:42 IST
Pakistan's cricket selection committee has resigned in the wake of the team's disastrous World Cup campaign, chief selector Wasim Bari said on Tuesday.
The three-member committee's tenure was to be reviewed after the World Cup, but former Test captain Bari said they decided to quit and shoulder some of the blame for the poor performances.
"We just thought morally we were bound to do this," he told Reuters.
Bari has served as a national selector since 1998, picking teams for three World Cups.
"Coach Bob Woolmer paid a heavy price for a failed campaign," selector Iqbal Qasim said. "This is what we should have done earlier."
A Pakistan cricket official also confirmed PCB chairman Nasim Ashraf had also submitted his resignation.
