PCB appeal challenges IHC judgement stripping Sethi of 'all powers'

Karachi, July 26 : The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has filed an intra-court appeal against the Islamabad High Court (IHC) judgement removing acting chairman Najam Sethi's authority to manage the affairs of the board.

Although the IHC had softened its stance on the eligibility rules for the elections of the PCB chairman by removing the 'graduate' and 'cricketer' conditions, its 30-page judgement stripped Sethi of his main powers and termed him as caretaker chairman until elections are held in 90 days time by the election commission of Pakistan.

The Nation reported that the PCB maintained that the judgment of the IHC single bench may result in gridlock for PCB in matters such as electoral college and criteria for selection committees, specifically team selection for the tours of Zimbabwe, Singapore and South Africa (home series), all of which are before end October.

The board also said that it needed to conclude arrangements for media broadcasting agreements related to its cricketing itinerary of PCB which has expired and for which tenders are required to be floated on urgent basis, failing which the board will suffer vast monetary losses.
