Legendry Former Skipper Wasim Akram to be given important position in Pakistan Cricket Board

ISLAMABAD - Legendry Skipper Wasim Akram to be given important position in Pakistan Cricket Board.

Former cricket team skipper Wasim Akram to take charge as the chairman of the cricket committee as he is "a strong candidate for the job”, according to PCB sources.

Following the resignation of Wasim Khan on Sunday, it has been said that the senior members of the board will approach Akram, who is currently a member of the cricket committee, in this regard.

According to sources, the PCB officials will be taking a decision in the next 15 days following a discussion with other former cricketers and other committee members before the Bangladesh series.

Meanwhile, Khan, who will now only be a member of the committee, has said that the post would be best held by a former cricketer. "There should be autonomy and the chairman should be independent," he said.
