'India ko hazam nahi hua PAK aage kaise nikal gaya', Ramiz Raja on India after being sacked.
Chairman PCB Ramiz Raja has been officially sacked.

According to recent developments, Ramiz Raja may be replaced as the board’s chairman, according to a report on Saturday from Geo News, which cited sources. This would signal a change of leadership at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Sources claim that Najam Sethi, a former PCB head, is a serious contender for the position.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz reportedly had lunch with Sethi in Lahore. “PCB’s constitution of 2014 should be restored. After its restoration, departmental sports will be revived,”  the reports cited the premier as stating. They claimed that Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, has also hinted at replacing Raja with Sethi.

According to the sources, the summary of the appointment of a new chairman has been given to the Prime Minister’s House by the secretary of the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC). According to the sources, the prime minister may order the reinstatement of the PCB constitution from 2014.

Raja, a former Pakistani captain and World Cup champion in 1992, was chosen in September, last year to serve as PCB’s 36th chairman for a three-year tenure.

Several times in the past, there have been rumors that Raja would be removed as PCB chairman; however, Raja denied the rumors and maintained that he would not be leaving.

In 2018, when Imran Khan took office as prime minister, Sethi resigned from his position as PCB chairman. Sethi was appointed to a three-year term in 2017, but his strained relationship with PM Khan caused him to resign early. Sethi also worked as the PCB chairman in 2013 and 2014.
