Former PCB chairman Najam Sethi available for ICC president’s post

Former PCB chairman Najam Sethi available for ICC president’s post
According to reliable sources in Dubai, Sethi, who now heads the PCB’s executive committee, had notified the apex body that he was ready to take over as ICC President following Kamal’s resignation.

Sethi is scheduled to take over as ICC President in late June as a nominee of Pakistan since the position is now shared on rotation basis by the Test nations. “What Sethi is not aware of is that he might have caused some embarrassment for the Pakistan board since under the constitution if Mustafa Kamal has resigned his place can be filled by another nominee of the Bangladesh cricket board,” a source told PTI. He said according to constitution since the ICC President’s post was largely a ceremonial one and was rotated between member countries even if Mustafa resigned before the expiry of his term the Bangladesh board had the right to nominate another candidate to fill in till the expiry of the full term.

No one was available to officially deny or confirm in the PCB whether Sethi had notified the ICC in writing and if it was with the consent of the PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan.

It is no secret that Shaharyar and Sethi don’t share the same views on many issues surrounding Pakistan cricket and recently while the former was adamant that Moin Khan should be sacked as chief selector the latter tried his best in the executive and cricket committee joint meeting to get the former captain an extension.
