Monitoring Desk

ISLAMABAD: A report revealing alleged financial and administration irregularities of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi has been submitted to PM-designate Imran Khan, sources told media.

As per details garnered, PCB chairman had appointed friends and closed family members on high-level posts. Naila Bhatti was awarded director post just after three month of her appointment.  Likewise, Aun Zaidi was promoted to assistant manager of PCB’s social media wing.

Sources privy to PTI told our correspondent that PM-in-waiting will not only force Sethi to relinquish but would also initiate probe into mammoth irregularities. Sources added that Khan will also direct FBR to take probe of pending cases against Sethi to their logical end.

Ever since victory of cricketer-turned-politician in general elections, air is thick with rumors that Khan is mulling over removing incumbent PCB chairman from his post. The likely successor of Sethi will be Wasim Akram.
