Shaharyar Khan is all set to become the next Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman as he was the only candidate to file nomination papers for the elections and no one else came up to contest against him.
Friday was the last day for submission of nominations for the PCB chairman’s post, which has been vacant after the departure of Najam Sethi at the end of July.
The new governing board will now elect the new chairman on August 18 (Monday) by casting their votes.
“As things stand, Khan is 99% certain to become the next PCB chief on Monday,” a governing board official told The Express Tribune.
“There isn’t any possibility of opposing him because he is the right candidate to run the PCB.”
The acting PCB Chairman and Chief Election Commissioner Justice (retd) Sair Ali had already said that he will leave the PCB office as soon as the new chairman will be elected.
