Karachi: The former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Najam Sethi has dismissed the impression that, in the presence of a powerful executive committee, the post of the chairman had become ceremonial. “The Chairman and Board of Governors are all powerful as per the constitution. I have not even spoken to the Chairman or been in touch with him, yet the PCB is fully functional and everyone is reporting to Chairman”, maintained Najam Sethi, while talking to this correspondent for News One TV.
Sethi, last month, was named the chairman of a powerful three-member Executive Committee to control cricket affairs. The committee also includes chief operating officer Subhan Ahmad and chief finance officer Badar Khan. The Sethi-led committee will take most important decisions concerning administration and finance.
“Like the other Committees, the Executive Committee will operate under the instructions of Chairman and BoG to implement their decisions effectively on a day to day basis”, clarified Sethi
