Lahore:Pakistan chief selector and former wicketkeeper Wasim Bari is likely to be shunted out of his job following displeasure expressed by the Pakistan team management including skipper Inzamam-ul Haq and coach Bob Woolmer over the latter's recent comments claiming sole credit for the team's success in India.

The Pakistan-daily-Daily Times carried a report saying that the Pakistan team management has taken umbrage to Bari's statements and interviews published in the Indian print media whereby he had taken all the credit of building the team and their successes in India.

"Bari said that he had been advising coach and captain on different issues before and during the Indian tour, which helped Pakistan achieve victory in India. The statements by Bari have annoyed captain Inzamamul Haq and coach Bob Woolmer. The duo have expressed their displeasure," Daily Times quoted.

It is worth recalling that Bari was made chief selector after Tauqir Zia stepped down as PCB chairman last year. Bari supplanted former Pakistan captain and opening batsman Aamer Sohail, who was considered a close buddy of Tauqir Zia.

Bari who appeared in 81 Tests between 1967 to 1984, is serving his second stint as chief selector. He also served at the same post but was dumped following Pakistan's dismal World Cup campaign in South Africa in 2003.
