Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ejaz Butt has dismissed calls for his resignation by members of the Senate Standing Committee on Sports, claiming that he continues to have the backing of PCB chief patron Asif Ali Zardari.
The senators tore into Butt and other officials at a special hearing on Tuesday and blamed them for the poor state of affairs in the cricket board. But Butt made it clear he had no intentions to resign.
“Why should I resign? I will continue to work until I enjoy the confidence of the chief patron of the board (President Asif Zardari),” he told reporters after the hearing.
“Me and my team are doing everything to streamline cricket affairs in the country and for this we need some time. We can’t produce results overnight,” Butt, a former Test player, said.
Butt pans to hold a press conference later on Tuesday to clarify certain points made after the Senate hearing.
