This is in reference to the editorial ‘Assignment Cricket’ dated August 21, 2014, in which Shaharyar M. Khan appointment as PCB chairman has been discussed. I have respect for him for being a career diplomat, an ex-PCB chairman and because of his family background. The question is how much energy one has after crossing 80? The point I am trying to make is that all senior, experienced and professional people should be hired as advisors and not on such demanding posts, which need a lot of travelling and a lot of energy. Shaharyar M Khan may be designated as Sports Advisor and given an office in PM Secretariat with the latest IT paraphernalia to control the Board.
