Former Attorney General Shah Khawar Named PCB Election Commissioner

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has seen several changes in November, with the appointment of Shah Khawar, the former attorney general, as the PCB election commissioner.


This move, confirmed by the Inter-Provincial Liaison Ministry, puts Khawar in charge for three months to organize PCB elections by February. His responsibilities include conducting elections for the Regions and PCB chairman, as stated in the released notification by the Inter-Provincial Ministry.

The notification highlighted that Shah Khawar will oversee the Board of Governors elections, with a deadline set for the election of the chairman by February 4, 2024.

Earlier this month, the federal government greenlit a three-month extension for Zaka Ashraf’s tenure as the chairman of the PCB’s Management Committee.

The extension was approved under specific rules and articles, according to a notification from the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC).

In a flurry of changes, Babar Azam resigned as the captain from all formats on November 15 after discussions with Ashraf, having been offered only the Test captaincy. Following this, Shan Masood and Shaheen Afridi were named captains for Test and T20I cricket, respectively.

Further restructuring saw Mohammad Hafeez appointed as the team’s director, Wahab Riaz taking up the role of chief selector, Sohail Tanveer becoming the head of the junior selection committee, and Mohammad Yousuf entrusted with coaching Pakistan’s U19 team.

These changes marked a significant shift in the PCB‘s landscape this November.
