In a major development for the Pakistan Cricket Board, Zaka Ashraf has been named as the chairman of a ten-person management committee that was recently formed.
The committee’s first meeting will be held in Lahore on Thursday. The committee has been given the duty of managing the board’s operations for a term of four months.
Ashraf, an established cricketing personality, provides a plethora of knowledge and experience to his new position. His return to the cricketing arena, where he previously held the position of PCB chairman, has been welcomed with a great deal of enthusiasm and support.
Ashraf is a strong candidate for this crucial role due to his smart leadership abilities and in-depth knowledge of the game. PCB’s new management committee is made up of two members chosen by the Honorable Prime Minister, four regional representatives, and four service representatives.
Zaka Ashraf & ten other committee members were carefully chosen to provide balance
The committee members were carefully chosen to provide a balanced representation. The ten members will be crucial in shaping the PCB’s future course. Zaka Ashraf was generally seen as the preferred option during his previous tenure. Historically, the prime minister’s recommendations to the board of governors had an impact on the choice of the PCB chairman.
However, due to legal challenges brought by former members of the management committee in several high courts around the nation, the most recent voting for the following board chairman, set for June 27, was postponed indefinitely.
The Baluchistan High Court approved the appeal of Gul Mohammad Kakar, a previous member of the PCB management committee, resulting in the delay of the chairman election. In order to address the issues made by Kakar and create an environment for a comprehensive investigation of the situation, the court has set a hearing for July 17th.
It’s important to note that the recent restructuring of the PCB’s board of governors caused a substitution of members from big towns like Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi, and Peshawar with representation from smaller towns like Dera Murad Jamali, Hyderabad, Larkana, and Bahawalpur. This move demonstrates the PCB’s commitment to diversity and the representation of cricket fans from all around the country.
Pakistan Cricket fans are excited about the positive developments and fresh perspective Zaka Ashraf will bring to the PCB with his leadership of the new management committee. The focus will be on the next phase of Pakistan cricket under Ashraf as the committee prepares ready for its first meeting in Lahore.
