Pakistan have appointed former fast bowler Wahab Riaz as their chief selector for the men's team.

The 38-year-old, who only retired from international duty in August to focus on franchise cricket, will work alongside the recently-appointed men's team director Mohammad Hafeez.

"The decision to involve former players is commendable," said Wahab, who replaces Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Pakistan begin a three-Test tour of Australia on 14 December.

Having disappointingly failed to get out of the group stage of the ongoing 50-over World Cup, Pakistan have since made a number of changes, with Babar Azam replaced as captain in all formats.

Batter Shan Masood - who spent last season as Yorkshire skipper - has taken over as Test captain, while pace bowler Shaheen Afridi will lead the T20 side. A captain for the one-day side is yet to be named.
