Former PCB chairman and Pakistan's nominee for the post of International Cricket Council (ICC) President, Najam Sethi has disclosed how he had to take a firm stand to prevent Misbah-ul-Haq from being removed as captain this year.
The outgoing chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Najam Sethi, has claimed that in the fiscal year ending June, 2014 the PCB, which was in danger of going bankrupt in three years` time, has ended up with profits of 800 million rupees.
Former PCB chairman, Najam Sethi today hit back at criticism and allegations made against him by cricketer-turned-politician, Imran Khan by stating that being made the head of the cricket board was a "punishment" for him not a "reward."
Former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi has started seeking influence for Arif Ali Khan Abbasi as the new chairman of the board, as Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has failed to appoint an ad hoc chairman of the board.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) decided to retain Misbah-ul-Haq as Test and ODI captain until the next World Cup in 2015 in order to crush apparent unrest in the national team over the captaincy issue.
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in his capacity as patron-in-chief of the PCB has removed Najam Sethi as chairman and dissolved the management committee while appointing a ad-hoc Chairman and election commissioner to hold elections in the board in 30 days time.
A top official of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) today said that it had got a good deal in finalising its bilateral series with other countries in the new future tours program of the International Cricket Council (ICC) that will run from 2015 to 2023.
Uncertainty prevailed once again in Pakistan cricket after the Supreme Court scheduled a hearing on Wednesday of the petition that was filed by the government and the Board against the reinstatement of Zaka Ashraf as PCB chairman by the Islamabad High Court.
After facing criticism from many quarters, Pakistan Test and one-day captain Misbah-ul-Haq is now getting some support as well with former skipper Zaheer Abbas backing him to lead the side till the 2015 World Cup.
