Willing to become PCB chairman if offered: Zaheer Abbas

Lahore, April 18 (IANS) Legendary Pakistani batsman and Zaheer Abbas is ready to become the chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) if offered the position.

“I’m willing to become the next PCB chairman but no one has contacted me regarding this,” the International Cricket Council (ICC) president was quoted as saying by Waqt News on Monday, as reported by nation.com.pk.

Abbas said he will be free after his tenure as ICC president ends. He became the ICC president in June last year and his term will end on this year.

He also lauded the decision to appoint batting legend Inzamam-ul-Haq as the chief selector.

PCB chairman Shahryar Khan is facing a lot of criticism after Pakistan’s bad showing in the Asia Cup and World T20. The team wasn’t able to qualify for the second round in either of the two T20 tournaments.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who is also the patron-in-chief of PCB, has been asked to change the PCB chairman.

Former head coach Waqar Younis has also criticised the PCB head in his report and stated that Shahryar Khan and Najam Sethi, the top two in PCB, are destroying Pakistan cricket.
