Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Zaka Ashraf might step down or could be told by President Asif Zardari to resign in the next few days following the dismal show of the team in the ongoing Champions Trophy.
Although Zaka got elected as Chairman for a four-year term in May under the new provisions of the PCB constitution which have been challenged in the court in some petitions, a reliable source aware of the developments said he could resign soon.
"Ashraf has presently gone to England on a private visit to watch the Pakistan-India match on June 15. But frankly speaking a lot will depend on the outcome of the game. If Pakistan continues its poor form and loses, it is certainly curtains for the PCB chief," the source said.
The Islamabad High Court has already stopped Ashraf from working as PCB Chairman on a writ petition filed by the former coach of the Pakistan Army cricket team.
"There are indications that the new government led by Nawaz Sharif wants changes in the board with new people and what happens at the hearing on Thursday will be important for Ashraf's future," the source added.
