Ramiz has made many changes to the board since taking over as PCB chairman last September, following Imran’s insistence on a domestic cricket structure based on only six first-class provincial teams.

Shortly after taking office, he made it clear to Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis that they were no longer needed as head coach and bowling coach of the national team and should resign.

He called for the resignation of Grant Bradburn, head of the High Performance Center in Lahore, and several other coaches.

His biggest move was to create a situation where Wasim Khan stepped down as CEO of the board.

Since then, Ramiz has brought in a new CEO but now that Imran’s government is gone, it remains to be seen what will happen to the new appointments to the board as political changes also have a big impact on the Pakistan cricket set-up.

“If Shahbaz Sharif becomes the new prime minister, then Ramiz no longer needs his services and there is a possibility of bringing back Najam Sethi as the head of the board.” The source said.

However, without any international or domestic commitment for the national team until June, changes to the board will not affect cricket matters.

Sethi resigned after Imran won the last general election because he had never been with the former captain on political issues.
