The chief selector of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Salahuddin Sallu has resigned from his post, and earlier the chairman PCB Dr. Nasim Ashraf resigned from his post and went to America. Besides of these two many other officials have also resigned and a revamp is in progress in the board.
Ijaz Butt is the new man in the PCB, who will look after the affairs of cricket in the country. Former Pakistan Test opener Ijaz Butt is also a close friend of President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari. The former chairman Dr. Nasim Ashraf was the personal friend of President General Pervez Musharraf. So friendships go on.
The new chairman has at least got the cricketing experience. He has played eight Tests between 1959-62, has rich credentials as a cricket administrator, having served as the Board secretary and was the manager of the national team on its tour of Australia in 1982-83. He also served as president of the Lahore City Cricket Association besides heading the national selection committee on a couple of occasions.
More recently, the new chairman has been serving as a member of the PCB Governing Board and emerged as one of the staunchest critics of former chairman Nasim Ashraf. He is regarded as a hard task-master and a tough administrator which is why the country’s cricket fraternity is anticipating some sweeping changes in the PCB set-up in the coming weeks.
So there might be some improvement.More on:America, Asif Ali Zardari, Ijaz Butt, Lahore, Nasim Ashraf, Pakistan, salahuddin sallu
