Wahab Riaz, serving as the Chairman of selectors, also captured Vaughan’s attention.
The former England captain acknowledged Riaz’s continuous involvement in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and commended his dual responsibilities as a selector and player. Vaughan particularly highlighted Riaz’s experience as captain in the PSL, underscoring the significance of his appointment.
“The Chairman of selectors is now Wahab Riaz, and I observe his ongoing participation in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). What I find impressive about his appointment is his previous captaincy role in the PSL, which was held by Babar Azam, the one who was replaced,” Vaughan elaborated.
