Najam Sethi elected chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board

Newly-elected chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board Najam Sethi says one of the challenges for him is to bring back international cricket to Pakistan. 69 year old Mr Sethi, will replace Shaharyar Khan, who quit because of health and personal reasons after completing his tenure.

Mr Sethi was unopposed and was unanimously elected by a new nine-member PCB board of governors. Pakistan’s deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had appointed Sethi as member of the board of governors last month.

It is mandatory, according to the PCB’s constitution, that the chairman should be elected from the members of the board of governors. Zimbabwe has been the only team to visit Pakistan since a terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team’s bus in Lahore in 2009.
