Lahore: Pakistan on Wednesday appointed former Test captain Rashid Latif as chief selector and tasked him with helping in the fight against corruption.

The straight-talking 45-year-old is known for taking a stand against match-fixing, which has dogged cricket in Pakistan over the years. "Latif accepted the offer to become the chief selector with effect from 1st April 2014," said a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) release.

The position was left vacant after the appointment of another former captain, Aamir Sohail, was cancelled by the new PCB chairman Najam Sethi earlier this month.
