PCB announces central contract

The election for the new boss of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is likely to take place on September 4.

According to the sources, the Election Commissioner for PCB Justice (retd) Syed Afzal Haider, who has taken charge as interim chairman of the board, has summoned a session to elect the new chief.

Former ICC president, Ahsan Mani is in the strong position to take charge of the PCB after he was nominated for the position by the newly elected Prime-minster of Pakistan and Patron-in-chief PCB, Imran Khan.

A chartered accountant by profession, Mani will resume the office after the session of PCB’s board of governors.

It is pertinent to mention here that Mr Prime Minister last week nominated Ahsan Mani and Asad Ali Khan the members of PCB’s governing body for next three years.

On August 20, just after two days of Imran’s swear-in ceremony, Najam Sethi stepped down as PCB Chairman to leave a vacant space for a new man to come and take the vision of Mr Khan forward.
