LAHORE: The first-ever democratically elected PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf described his removal as an undemocratic step by the democratic government.

Addressing a press conference today, Zaka Ashraf said that he would challenge the legality of a committee formed in his absence.

It is not a good decision for Pakistan’s cricket and the fans Ashraf said, adding that he would consult his legal team in this regard.

To a question, he said that all the decisions he made as an elected PCB chief were legitimate.

A self-created explanation was given to sack the cricket board, he said.

I wanted to seek guidance from the patron-in-chief, but he did not give time for a meeting, he said, adding that “In cricket , it is like a martial law as an elected person has been removed from his office”.

Zaka Ashraf said that he had no idea about the importance of one person, who can dismiss an elected board.
