Ashraf becomes PCB’s first elected chairman

Zaka Ashraf on Wednesday became the first elected head of the Pakistan Cricket Board for a four-year term under the new PCB constitution.

The new constitution in February replaced the system of appointing the chief by the Patron of the board, the President of Pakistan. The 60-year-old Ashraf has been PCB chairman since October 2011, when he was appointed under the old system by Pakistani president Asif Ali Zardari.PTI
