Pakistan Cricket Board Elects Chair Zaka Ashraf To Four-Year Term Under New Constitution
Pakistan Cricket Board Chair Zaka Ashraf on Wednesday became the country's first elected head of the sport, "winning a four-year term under a new constitution approved earlier this year," according to PAKISTAN TODAY. The Int'l Cricket Council "directed all its members to run their boards democratically and without government interference." Ashraf, 60, has been PCB chairman since October '11, "when he was appointed by Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari under the old system." But the PCB's governing board "elected him back into the job under the new regulations" (PAKISTAN TODAY, 5/8).
