- New PCB Management Committee Takes Office Under Zaka Ashraf’s Stewardship.
In a recent development, Zaka Ashraf, the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee, has officially stepped down from his position within the Central Executive Committee of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
This decision, effective as of June 19, 2023, marks the conclusion of Zaka Ashraf’s affiliation with the PPP. The Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) has been promptly notified about his resignation from significant roles within the PPP.
Sources suggest that this decision is closely associated with a nomination originating from a former Prime Minister who had previously withdrawn from active political engagements. This move hints at a strategic realignment on Zaka Ashraf’s part.
Taking up a significant new role, Zaka Ashraf has been appointed as the head of the newly formed PCB Management Committee (MC). This committee is tasked with overseeing the operations of the cricket board for a duration of four months, indicating a potential period of transformative change and reevaluation within the PCB.
On July 6, 2023, Zaka Ashraf formally assumed his responsibilities as the leader of the Pakistan Cricket Board, a position that received the approval of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. The establishment of the PCB’s new committee came about through a summary put forth by the federal government, which was subsequently granted approval.
Noteworthy individuals who join Zaka Ashraf on this committee are Kalim Ullah Khan, Ashafaq Akhtar, Mussadiq Islam, Azmat Parvez, Zaheer Abbas, Khurram Soomro, Khawaja Nadeem, Mustafa Ramday, and Zulfiqar Malik.
This transition holds the promise of shaping the future trajectory of Pakistan’s cricket landscape, with Zaka Ashraf at the helm of affairs. As the PCB Management Committee embarks on its journey, cricket enthusiasts and stakeholders eagerly await the outcomes of this new leadership configuration.
