The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to appeal the decision of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) which called for fresh elections for the chairman of the Board, CricInfo reported on Wednesday.

According to the report, the PCB has decided, in principle, to file an intra-court appeal with the IHC, since the order may impact some of the decisions taken during Sethi’s short tenure, including team selections and a lucrative broadcast deal under process.

The Ministry of Inter Provincial Coordination, Government of Pakistan (IPC) has also filed an appeal against the judgment.

Last week, the IHC in its detailed order had termed Najam Sethi as the caretaker chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) but termed all decisions made by him as caretaker chairman as null and void.

It had also ordered for the elections of a new chairman within 90 days in its 30-page detailed decision.
