Bemused by Rashid Latif U-turn, PCB demands explanation
Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has been called for a meeting with the Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Najam Sethi on April 14th after he turned down the board's offer to be the chief selector.
According to reports, Sethi wants to know the first hand reasons behind Latif declining the post, after he initially agreed to the offer.
Latif had accepted the board's offer last month after meeting with Sethi after which the PCB issued a press release announcing that the former captain would be the new chief selector from April 1st onwards.
But this week Latif returned the PCB contract and gave no reasons for his decision, insisting he didn't want to create more controversies.
