Former Pakistan Cricket Board Chief Executive Wasim Khan has been appointed as the ICC General Manager – Cricket. The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed the announcement on Friday.

He will take over from Allardice who spent eight years in the role before being appointed as the ICC CEO. “I am honoured to be joining the ICC, I can’t await to get started and work in partnership with our Members to strengthen and grow our sport,” Khan said in an ICC statement.


Khan began a three-year term with the PCB on February 1, 2019, but resigned as the board’s chief executive in September last year, four months prior to the end of his contract.
