Pakistan Super League (PSL) chairman Najam Sethi has been elected as the new chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Express News reported citing sources on Wednesday.
The 69-year-old Sethi, who is a renowned journalist, is being credited for the success of Pakistan’s own T20 league, which started in United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2016.
Sethi, who was recently named in the Board of Governors by the Patron of the PCB, was the strongest candidate.
This is the third time Sethi will head PCB, as he was also the chairman from June 2013 to January 2014 and February 2014 to May 2014.
Earlier, former cricketers also put their weight behind Sethi, who is the 32nd chairman of the board to take Pakistan cricket to where it belongs.
