Islamabad, July 17 (IBNS): Days after Pakistan crashed out off the World Cup tournament without reaching the semi-finals, former cricketer and captain Inzamam ul-Haq on Wednesday announced that he would no longer be the chief selector of the men's cricket team after July 30.

"I think it is time to step down, I will complete my term that ends on July 30," Haq was quoted as saying by Dawn News during a press conference.

"When i returned [from United Kingdom], I told the Pakistan Cricket Board [PCB] that I did not want to continue with my position. I joined in 2016 and have spent a good time here. Now, I have decided that new people should come, with a new thinking and ideas," he said.

"I thank the PCB and the team who respected my choices," he said.

When asked if he would take on another role in the management, Haq was quoted as saying by Dawn News: "I am a cricketer, this is my bread and butter. If the board offers me another role, apart from selection, I would consider it."

Haq said the board did not give him any offer so far.

Haq said it was unlucky that Pakistan could not reach the semi-finals stage of the tournament due to the net run rate issue.

"Pakistan defeated the two finalists, won four matches. But they were unlucky that they were ruled out [from the semifinals] due to the NRR [net run-rate]," Haq said.

England won the World Cup this year.
