Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), is probably going to be removed, according to sources cited by Geo News on Saturday.
The sources claim that Najam Sethi, a former PCB chair, is a serious contender for the position.
Shehbaz Sharif allegedly discussed Sethi’s appointment as the PCB chairman during their meeting in Lahore.
According to the sources, the summary for the chairman change has been sent to the PM House by the secretary of the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC).
Several times in the past, there were rumors that Raja would be replaced as PCB chairman; however, he denied the rumors and declared that he would not be leaving.
Raja, a former captain of Pakistan and World Cup champion in 1992, was chosen in September of last year to serve as the 36th chairman of the PCB for a three-year term by a unanimous vote.
When Imran Khan was sworn in as prime minister in 2018, Sethi resigned as the PCB chairman. Sethi was appointed in 2017 for a three-year tenure, but due to his tense relationship with Khan, he left office early.
In 2013 and 2014, Sethi served as the PCB chairman.
