After Abdul Qadir and Zaheer Abbas, yet another ex – great cricketer Javed Miandad has also announced his plan to fight for the post of chairman of the PCB in the upcoming elections. Miandad, one of Pakistan’s renowned cricketers, is presently employed by the board as director cricket.
“I am seriously thinking about contesting the elections because I think I know the running and affairs of the board well enough now and given my cricketing background, I can do a lot of good for Pakistan cricket,” Miandad said on Thursday.
Though Miandad is employed at a good wage, the PCB and its chairmen appeared reluctant to make full use of his expertise. Miandad has served under 3 chairmen – Ijaz Butt, Zaka Ashraf and now Najam Sethi since November, 2008, but none of them have been inclined to give him more authority and tasks.
