LAHORE- Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Director General Javed Miandad has sent a letter to the cricket board saying he wants to leave his post.
The former batsman was appointed in November 2008 and served under the chairmanship of three PCB chiefs - Ijaz Butt, Zaka Ashraf and Najam Sethi.
PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar, without giving details about Miandad’s letter, has confirmed that the board has received a letter from Miandad in which he has offered his resignation. “The matter of Miandad’s resignation will be discussed during the next meeting of the PCB’s management committee,” he added.
Earlier this week, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif removed Ashraf and appointed an eight-member management committee of the PCB which later elected Sethi as chairman. In 2009, Miandad quit after developing differences with Ijaz Butt before he was reinstated by then president Asif Ali Zaradari. According to the sources, Miandad wrote in the letter that time had reached to say goodbye to the PCB. “The context of the letter states that scuffles within cricket circles are damaging the country's cricket sectors which is questioning his conscience but although he has no fight with anyone.” He prayed for the betterment of Pakistan's cricket and confirmed his services' availability for the country at any time.
