According to Geo News, Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has approved the appointment of Sethi. It’s being reported that the PM’s Office will issue notifications related to the development.
Ramiz Raja has reportedly been removed as the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) a day after the team suffered a historic Test series clean sweep at the hands of England at home. According to various media reports from Pakistan, Najam Sethi will succeed the former cricketer into the role.
Raja’s appointed came with much fanfare but his final days in PCB were marred by a war of words with the BCCI when reports emerged that India may not send its team for the Asia Cup next year slated to be held in Pakistan.
PCB threatened that it will boycott the 2023 ODI World Cup scheduled to be hosted by India should BCCI decided against sending their team for the continental tournament next year.
