PCB announces new chairman

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has recently announced the appointment of Zaka Ashraf as the chairman of the PCB Management Committee, in a decision made by the federal government. Along with this appointment, the committee’s formation has been approved through the circulation of a summary.

Over the course of four months, the 10-member committee has been entrusted with the responsibility to lead. Additionally, Mahmood Iqbal has been named the new chief election commissioner, taking over from Ahmed Shehzad Farooq Rana.

Wasting no time, the newly formed committee has already scheduled its inaugural meeting, which is set to occur in Lahore on Thursday, July 6. This marks the beginning of their efforts to streamline the operations and governance of the PCB.

PCB’s management committee led by Zaka Ashraf

Comprising the committee are the following members: Zaka Ashraf (chairman), Kaleem Ullah Khan, Ashfaq Akhtar, Musaddiq Islam, Azmat Parvez, Zaheer Abbas, Khurram Karim Somroo, Khuwaja Nadeem, Mustafa Ramday, and Zulfiqar Malik.

These developments come after the Lahore High Court lifted the stay order on the PCB chairman election, which was initially scheduled for June 27 at the PCB headquarters in Lahore. However, the election was postponed due to multiple court orders, including one from the Balochistan High Court.

Specifically, on June 27, the Lahore High Court stayed the election and suspended the notification of the Board of Governors (BoG). Notices were issued to the federal government, the cricket board’s election commissioner, and others. Malik Zulfiqar’s petition raised concerns about Chief Election Commissioner Shahzad Farooq Rana making unauthorized changes to the list of the BoGs, which had been finalized by the interim management committee on June 20. The petition argued that these actions were illegal.
