Shaharyar Khan is likely to stay on as chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif rejected his resignation.
Shaharyar sent his resignation to Sharif prior to the recent International Cricket Council (ICC) meetings in Dubai, but Sharif wants him to complete his three-year term.
“Shaharyar had made it clear that due to health and personal reasons he would like to step down on April 30,” a source said. “But after Shaharyar returned from Dubai after attending the ICC meetings where the Big Three governance system was rolled back, he has been informed by the Prime Minister’s house that he should carry on working and complete his term which ends in late August.”
The source added that Sharif has been highly impressed with Shaharyar’s work as PCB chairman.
“Apparently the Prime Minister is clearly happy with Shaharyar’s work and the way he handled the Big Three issue at the ICC meetings. Basically, he has been rewarded for his work,” the source said.
