LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday sought a reply from the Pakistan Cricket Board on a petition challenging the appointment of former captain Misbah ul Haq as head coach and chief selector for the Pakistan cricket team.

The single bench comprising Justice Muhammad Ameer Bhatti passed the orders while hearing a petition filed by Zahid Ali Bukhari.

During the hearing, the court remarked that former captain was a star, adding, was there any doubt in his capabilities?

To which, the petitioner's counsel argued that he had no doubts in former captain's capabilities. However, the appointment was made against the rules and merit, he added.
