Following India's refusal to travel to Pakistan, the PCB's management committee, headed by Najam Sethi, put forth a proposal for a hybrid model for the Asia Cup.
Despite encountering several obstacles along the way, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) eventually approved the hybrid model. As per the approved arrangement, the first four matches will be held in Pakistan, after which the tournament will shift to Sri Lanka for nine matches, including the final. The Asia Cup is scheduled to take place from August 31 to September 17.
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif nominated Zaka Ashraf and Mustafa Ramday to be included in the PCB Board of Governors (BoG).
With the addition of Ashraf and Ramday, the BoG now has a complete membership of 10 individuals. Alongside Ashraf and Ramday, four representatives from cricket associations and four representatives from departments will also serve on the BoG.
The chief election commissioner will soon announce the election, expected to be held later this week.
Najam Sethi, who previously headed the PCB management committee, confirmed that he is no longer in the running for the position of PCB chairman.
In a tweet, the 75-year-old stated that he does not wish to become a source of conflict between Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and PPP co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari.">
