Chairman of Pakistan Cricket, Shaharyar Khan’s resignation letter has been rejected by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and has been asked him to complete his three-year term. As per reports received from reliable sources Shaharyar had sent his resignation letter to PCB’s patron in chief pf PCB before leaving to attend some important ICC meetings in Dubai.
“Shaharyar had made it clear that due to health and personal reasons he would like to step down on April 30,” the reliable source said. But ever since Shaharyar’s return from Dubai he has been asked by the Prime Minister to carry on until his tenure ends in August.
“But after Shaharyar returned from Dubai after attending the ICC meetings where the Big Three governance system was rolled back, he has been informed by the Prime Minister’s house that he should carry on working and complete his term which ends in late August,” the source was quoted as saying by the Indian Express.
The PCB chairman is directly elected by them for a three-year tenure as he is the direct nominee of the Prime Minister on the Board of governors. The source also revealed that the PM is particularly very happy with Shaharyar Khan and the way he handled the big three issue in the ICC meeting. “Apparently the Prime Minister is clearly happy with Shaharyar’s working and the way he handled the Big Three issue at the ICC meetings. Basically, he has been rewarded for his work,” the source said.
Shaharyar conceded that they want to have a good relation with BCCI but given their current condition they has been forced to take legal steps. “We have suffered major losses because of India’s refusal to play the bilateral series as per the MoU and we can’t allow this to continue. If India confirms it is willing to resume bilateral cricket it would be a positive development for cricket in the region,” Shaharyar said. He was also the chairman of PCB from 2003-2006
