Pakistan former captain Wasim Akram is likely to become the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Cricket Committee.
The former fast-bowler is currently a member of the committee. The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the PCB Wasim Khan recently vacated the post of chairman.
As stated by CricketPakistan.com.pk, Wasim Akram is leading the list of candidates for this position.
Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had taken the decision to make the Cricket Committee an independent body by only including former cricketers.
Misbah Ul Haq also left the committee after being appointed as the head coach-cum-chief selector of the national side.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has started the search for other members of the committee. According to the reports, Wasim Khan is expected to be the only PCB representative in the new structure of the committee.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is expected to finalise the new committee within the next two weeks. The committee is expected to hold its first meeting before the Pakistan’s home series against Bangladesh. The members of the committee will be working without any financial gains. They will, however, receive allowances for participating, hotel and daily expenditures.
The committee will have the authority to call upon the head coach along with other officials who are responsible for the team’s performance.
