Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja is likely to be replaced by Najam Sethi.
According to local media reports, former PCB head Najam Sethi is a serious contender for the position.
Sethi according to reports met with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in Lahore, and the PM is supposed to have indicated that Sethi will take over as head of the PCB.
Media reports suggested that the summary for the new chairman’s appointment has been sent to the PM House by the secretary of the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC).
There were rumours that Raja would be replaced as PCB chairman several times in the past. However, Raja denied the rumours and declared that he would not be leaving.
Former Pakistan captain and 1992 World Cup winner Raja was chosen in September of last year to serve as the 36th chairman of the PCB for a three-year term by a unanimous vote.
Sethi resigned as the PCB chairman when Imran Khan became prime minister in 2018. Despite being appointed in 2017 for a three-year term, Sethi left office early due to his strained relationship with Khan.
Sethi served as the PCB chairman in 2013 and 2014.
