Sethi says resigned to fulfill promise of not playing 'long innings' in PCB
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi has said that he has fulfilled his promise of not playing a long innings in the PCB by resigning last week.
Sethi strongly dismissed various allegations levelled against him by opposition parties with reference to him having been awarded the top cricket post as a favour by the ruling PML-N for his role as caretaker Punjab chief minister in the last general elections.
Addressing an Iftar dinner gathering held in his honour by former LCCA president Khawaja Nadeem Ahmad on Thursday, Sethi said that he has lived up to his promise of not clinging to the PCB post forever and Friday would be his last working day as the Board's chairman, The Dawn reported.
Sethi also said that the prime minister had offered him this post after taking him to a separate room during a function, where he showed him a list of 35 people who were keen to bag the chairman PCB's job.
Sethi revealed that the PM said that he wanted to give this post to him in order to put things right at the PCB and for restoring the country's image at the ICC.
