PCB Chairman gets green Signal from PM to continue

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan, whose two-year term at the board’s helm ends in August, may not be leaving his post soon.Press Trust of India (PTI) on Friday quoted a source as saying that Shaharyar, who is on vacation, met Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in London and the premier has given him a green signal to continue as the PCB chief.

“He has now been told by the patron in chief of the PCB that he should continue working and not step down in August as he had planned earlier,” the source said.

The Octogenarian had earlier told PTI that whenever the team performs badly, former cricketers demand a sacking of team management and officials which might be the reason for him to leave the post when his two-year tenure ends in August.

However, according to the source, Shaharyar discussed cricketing matters in detail with the PM and is now ready to carry on.
