Zaka Ashraf resigns as the head of PCB Management Comittee

Zaka Ashraf resigns as the head of PCB Management Comittee. Zaka Ashraf has stepped down as the Chairman of the PCB’s Management Committee after a mere six months in office. Ashraf stepped down from the post on the grounds of a difficult working environment. He had assumed the leadership of the PCB on 6 July 2023, replacing Najam Sethi. Ashraf said that he would continue to work towards the development of cricket.

During one of the committee meetings, Ashraf said, “I have worked hard for the development of cricket but it is impossible for us to do so.” He added that the choice of his successor would be made by the Prime Minister, who had extended the terms of office of Ashraf’s Management Committee until 2023. 

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed the resignation in a statement, in which it said that Ashraf had given notice of his resignation as Chairman and member of Management Committee to the Prime Minister. In his statement, Ashraf thanked the PCB Patron for his trust and confidence in him.

Under Ashraf’s leadership, Pakistan participated in two major competitions: the Asia Cup (ODI) and the World Cup (Test/T20I). The national team failed to make it to the final of Asia Cup and missed out on the semi-finals of World Cup.
