LAHORE - The Pakistan Cricket Board has disbanded the national selection committee without giving a reason for the decision. Former leg-spinner Abdul Qadir, who was chief of the three-member selection committee, had resigned after just seven months following a row over the exclusion of fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar from the World Twenty20 squad. Qadir, who claimed 236 wickets from 67 Tests, had said he resigned because he was not allowed to function independently. The PCB had appointed human resources director Wasim Bari to pick the team for the tour of Sri Lanka along with the two other selectors Saleem Jaffar and Shoaib Mohammad. Neither Qadir nor the other two selectors were invited by the PCB to celebrate Pakistan's triumph in the World Twenty20. The decision to disband the selection committee was taken by Ijaz Butt. He did not say when new panel of selectors would be installed. "The interim selection committee under Wasim Bari will continue to work till further orders," a PCB statement said. Two other members of the Qadir-led committee - Salim Jaffer and Shoaib Mohammad - did not resign but the latest decision terminates their services.No other member of Bari's interim committee was announced. Bari has served on the national selection committee on three occasions, but had to resign after Pakistan team crashed out in the first round of the 2007 World Cup, held in the West Indies. The junior selection committee was headed by former Test all-rounder Mohammad Ilyas. The PCB has employed paid selectors since April 2007 - a move which has now been rescinded and there are reports that the new selection committee will be honorary.
