Islamabad:Inzamam-ul Haq's days as skipper may be numbered with President Pervez Musharraf reportedly directing the Pakistan Cricket Board to start looking for a replacement.

Musharraf, who reviewed the performance of the team on the current tour of Australia in a meeting with PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan on Monday, is believed to have given his go-ahead for making necessary changes in the team management, local daily The News reported on Tuesday.

"Naming the captain, manager and making other adjustments in the PCB set up is in the offing following the meeting between Musharraf and Khan on Monday," the report said.

PCB's Media Advisor Abbas Zaidi, however, denied any plans were afoot to change the captain.

"As far as my information is concerned, the President has not asked for any change in captaincy," he said.

Inzamam, who had earlier hinted at quitting his post, denied reports that he was considering to resign.

"From where these stories have come I am amazed. I am keen to continue as captain till the West Indies tour," the newspaper quoted him as saying.
