Pakistan PM Appoints Interim Management Committee For Pakistan Cricket Board
Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday "appointed an interim management committee to take control of the Pakistan Cricket Board," according to the PTI. Sharif announced the "necessary amendments in the PCB Constitution to effect the supersession by the interim committee." The interim committee comprises acting PCB Interim Chair Najam Sethi, former Chair Shaharyar Khan, "former captain Zaheer Abbas, ex-player Haroon Rasheed and former national team manager Naveed Cheema." The move to "appoint an interim committee was expected for a while" since Sethi was "unable to exercise full powers because of a judgement by the Islamabad High Court in August on a Constitutional Writ Petition challenging the election of his predecessor Zaka Ashraf" (PTI, 10/15).
