The Prime Minister of Pakistan Mr. Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif has become the Patron-in-Chief of the country’s cricket cricket governing, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). According to CNBC Pakistan, the announcement was made earlier today. The PM has also announced names of 5 members of an interim committee which will be responsible to elect the new Chairman of PCB. Right after coming into power, PM Nawaz Sharif had removed Zaka Ashraf and selected Najam Sethi as the new Chairman. This has widely spread as a controversy due to the reason that Najam Sethi, originally a journalist with deep interest in politics, is in a close circle of Nawaz Shareef and has no experience in cricket whatsoever.
The newly announced interim committee has the following names: Najam Sethi‚ Haroonur Rashid‚ Shehryar Khan‚ Naveed Akram Cheema and Zaheer Abbas.
