Pakistan Cricket Board appoints Ehsan Mani as official chairman

Former International Cricket Council (ICC) president Ehsan Mani has been appointed as the official chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for a period of three years.

The PCB took to its official Twitter handle and revealed that Mani was elected unopposed by the Board of Governors (BoG).

"Mr. Ehsan Mani has been elected Chairman PCB by the Board of Governors (BoG.) Mr. Mani was elected unopposed in the BoG meeting convened at the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore on Tuesday for a period of three years," the tweet read.

It was newly elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, who appointed Mani. 

"I have appointed Ehsan Mani as Chairman PCB. He brings vast and valuable experience to the job. He represented PCB in the ICC; was Treasurer ICC for 3 yrs and then headed the ICC for another 3 yrs," PM Khan tweeted." 

Before Mani, it was Najam Sethi, who was nominated to the PCB Board of Governors by ex-Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from 2014-2017 and then again from 2017-2020 by ex-Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, said he took the decision to make way for Imran to implement his vision for Pakistan cricket.

Sethi addressed his resignation letter to the Prime Minister, which states: "You have said on many occasions you have a vision for Pakistan cricket. Therefore, it is only proper that you should assume charge and responsibility for assembling a management team for PCB that enjoys your full confidence and trust."
