PCB boss Ijaz Butt likely to be removed next week
There are indications that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt may soon find himself kicked out of the post, as President Asif Ali Zardari, as the PCB's patron, has given his consent for a massive overhaul of the board.
According to sources, Zardari has taken serious note of recent controversies and complaints against Butt and may soon remove him.
"Indications are that the President has finally taken notice of the complaints by the members of the National Assembly and Senate Standing committees on Sports," The News quoted sources privy to the development, as saying.
One of the key points, that goes against Butt, is his persistence to appoint his own relatives and known people on important posts of the board, while ignoring other deserving candidates.
"His insistence on continuing with Yawar Saeed and giving him important positions like that of the national team manager despite criticism from many quarters has also gone against Butt," sources said.
Zardari is likely to announce some major changes in the board next week.
