The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reportedly shortlisted two candidates for the vacant Chief Executive Officer (CEO) position. Since the former CEO, Wasim Khan, resigned from the position more than two months ago, PCB has been looking for a replacement.
According to sources, the PCB has finalized two names after interviewing three candidates, and their information has been forwarded to the PCB’s Patron-in-Chief, Prime Minister Imran Khan. PM Imran will make the final decision, and the appointment will be made within the next few weeks.
Former Zimbabwe cricket official Faisal Hasnain is one of two candidates for the role, with the identity of the other candidate unknown.
Faisal previously served as Zimbabwe Cricket’s Managing Director and as the International Cricket Council’s former financial director (ICC).
Faisal’s tenure with Zimbabwe’s cricket team was full of ups and downs, as they were able to secure the hosting rights for the 2019 World Cup Qualifiers, renovate and upgrade stadiums in the country, and win an ODI series in Sri Lanka, but they were unable to pull themselves out of a deep financial crisis. Faisal resigned from his position less than a year after taking it.
