After being appointed the brand ambassador and an advisor to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar promised to take the national cricket to the next level and promised that he will work with same the passion as he did during his playing days.

"Shoaib Akhtar has been appointed Advisor to Chairman on Cricket Affairs/Brand Ambassador PCB," PCB chairman Najam Sethi announced on Twitter.

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.
