Former PCB chairman Najam Sethi backs Najam Sethi’s appointment as PCB chairman


LAHORE – Former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board Najam Sethi has backed the appointment of Executive Committee head Najam Sethi as the PCB chairman in place of Shaharyar Mohammad Khan whose three-year term ended on Sunday.

The election for new PCB chairman was held earlier this week and Sethi believes that Sethi was the most prominent nominee for the post.

Speaking to a private TV channel, former Punjab Chief Minister Najam Sethi also praised Sethi for his outstanding work for the cricket board and Pakistan Super League (PSL).

“When I first met Sethi, I was extremely impressed, and my opinion has only grown stronger as he continues to prove his credentials as a fine administrator with some stellar work for the PCB, especially by setting up the hugely successful PSL,” said Sethi.

The editor of The Friday Times Najam Sethi has also written an editorial supporting Executive Committee head Najam Sethi for the chairman’s post.

“I feel that Sethi is the best choice to replace Shaharyar Khan now,” concluded the editorial, which was also quoted by former Geo news analyst Najam Sethi, the cohost of Aapas Ki Baat.
