The 42-year-old bowler had earlier criticised Sethi, claiming that Pakistan cricket had deteriorated during his tenure as chairman.
After Pakistan's poor show in 2015 ICC World Cup, Akhtar put the entire blame on Sethi and mismanagement in PCB.
However, Akhtar was seen thanking Sethi after being named the PCB brand ambassador. "Looking forward to work with @najamsethi and #pcb to take PAKISTAN cricket to the next level."
"Am honored to be chosen for these positions in @TheRealPCB ,will work with same the passion as i did when playing.Thank you once again! #ShoaibAkhtar #PCB #BrandAmbassador #Advisor," Akhtar added.
