Caretaker Chief Minister (CM) of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi, has been unanimously elected as the new Chairman PCB management committee.
Backed by ten members of the board of governors at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore, Mohsin Naqvi’s leadership has been approved for the next three years.
His candidacy was proposed by the Patron PCB, caretaker Prime Minister Anwarul Haq Kakar, and Mustafa Ramdey, for the Board of Governors established under the 2014 constitution.
Representatives from various regions and departments, including Azad Jammu Kashmir, Larkana, Dera Murad Jamali, Bahawalpur, PTV, State Bank, Sui Gas, and Ghani Glass, have been included in the board, showcasing its diverse composition.
Although the secretary of inter-provincial coordination sits on the board of governors, they do not hold voting privileges. Chief Election Commissioner Shah Khawar announced Mohsin Naqvi’s victory.

As Mohsin Naqvi steps into the role of Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, he will face crucial decisions aimed at enhancing the Pakistan Super League and strengthening the national team.
