Recently, the newly-appointed management committee had expressed interest in assigning the legendary cricketer as the chief selector for the national setup.
Zaka Ashraf, who assumed the role of Chairman of the PCB Management Committee, brought about several changes in the operations of the cricket board.
Earlier this month, the PCB appointed former captain Misbah-ul-Haq as the head of the high-profile Technical Committee, which also includes Mohammad Hafeez.
