KARACHI (Suno News) Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar has approved the nomination of Caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi as the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket board (PCB).

The decision was made to nominate Mr Mohsin Naqvi for the role of the coveted post of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) chairman.

Mohsin Naqvi who is serving as the caretaker Punjab chief minister, will be officially nominated after PCB Patron-in-Chief and caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar’s approval. If approved, Naqvi will replace the PCB Management Committee former chairman Zaka Ashraf, in the Board of Governors.

Also the chief minister has confirmed his appointment while speaking to media persons in Lahore soon after the news broke out. He said, “I will try to fix the issues affecting Pakistan cricket. Reforms in cricket are the need of the hour.”

Last Friday, Zaka Ashraf announced his resignation from the position as chairman of the PCB Management Committee during the committee’s meeting. He became part of PCB’s Board of Governors on July 6, and also replaced Najam Sethi as chairman.

Zaka said, “I was working for the betterment of cricket but it is not possible for us to work in this way.” He added, “Now it is up to Prime Minister [Kakar], whomever he nominates [will take my place].”

Zaka Ashraf had served as the PCB Management Committee’s Chairman for at least seven months. He submitted his resignation as the chairman and Member of the Board of Governors (BoG). Zaka Ashraf has expressed his dedication to the improvement of Pakistan cricket.
