Musical chairs of sorts continued to be played between Najam Sethi and Zaka Ashraf, who took turns to hold the post of chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Najam Sethi was restored as the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board after the Supreme Court suspended the decision to reinstate Zaka Ashraf as the PCB chairperson. Earlier, the Islamabad High Court had reinstated Ashraf as the chairperson of the body.
For the sixth time since May 2013, the PCB saw the reinstatement of a chairperson after he was sent packing on legal grounds. Ashraf was reinstated for the second time after being removed as the PCB chairperson twice while Sethi is now at the top spot for the third time.
Zaka was suspended in May 2013 by the IHC after it ruled that his selection process was dubious. However, after a complicated legal process, he was reinstated by the same court on January 15, 2014, before Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif dismissed him again on February 10, bringing Sethi back in the saddle.
