Former batsman Basit Ali has been named chief of Pakistan's junior national selection committee and will head a four-member panel, the PCB has announced.

The committee also includes former Test cricketers Ali Naqvi and Farrukh Zaman, and Ali Zia, general manager (cricket development) at the National Cricket Academy. Basit and Zaman had earlier served as junior selectors in 2008.

Compared to Javed Miandad in his early years, Basit played 19 Tests in a two-year span between 1993 and 1995, while his 50-match ODI career stretched until 1996.

Naqvi, a right-hand batsman, scored a Test century on debut against South Africa in October 1997 but played the last of his five Tests just a few months later in March 1998. Zaman, a left-arm spinner, played just one Test in 1976. Zia, who bowled medium-pace and legspin, has extensive first-class experience - having played 165 first-class games and 62 one-dayers between 1974 and 1993.
