Ehsan Mani steps down as PCB chairman

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani on Thursday stepped down from his post after completing his three-year term.

Mani confirmed to Geo News channel that he had declined from the post as he do not wish to continue any longer as chairman of the PCB.

“The aim is to reset Pakistan cricket’s GPS and will be in pursuit of excellence,” Ramiz Raja was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

It further said that the decision was made today as just couple of days back, Mani had told the website, after meeting the prime minister, “I have given him (Imran Khan) my plans. He will make a call.”

After the development, Prime Minister Imran Khan, whi is presently the patron in chief of the PCB, will now nominate two people to the PCB Board of Governors (BOG) and one of them will be elected as the new chairman.

Earlier, both Mani and Ramiz have held meetings with the PM this week but it remains unclear whom Khan will nominate as the BOG.

Earlier, Ramiz had told a cricket website that he had submitted a blueprint for the restructuring of Pakistan cricket to the PM. “Pakistan cricket needs a new direction as our rankings in all three formats indicates our cricket is not improving as the prime minister wanted,” he had said.
