Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) chairman management committee Najam Sethi assured the skipper Babar Azam on Tuesday that no one would interfere in selecting the final XI and it would be his own decision.
According to media reports, Najam Sethi told Babar Azam he would have a free hand in selecting the playing XI.
PCB Head also praised Babar Azam for his performances in all formats and said the Pakistan cricket team were lucky to have him.
Babar Azam showed frustration last week when he was informed that Shan Masood was his vice-captain. There was also confusion when the newly appointed vice-captain was not included in the playing XI by Babar Azam.
