In a first, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is going to hire a woman director, who will either serve as an election commissioner, deputy election commissioner or one of the adjudicators.

As per the details, PCB on Friday held its 55th Board of Governors (BoG) meeting during which a three-member nominations committee — in accordance with Clause 41 of the PCB Constitution 2019 — was constituted.

According to the said clause, BoG is to form a three-member committee responsible for presenting recommendations on the appointment of four independent directors, one of which will now be a woman.


“The BoG meeting chaired by PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani also approved various recommendations of the Audit Committee, including the board’s central budget for the 2019-20 financial year,” stated a press release issued here.

PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan also briefed the BoG on the outcomes of the cricket committee meeting held on August 2 to review the national cricket team’s performance within the last three years.

The BoG acknowledged and appreciated the PCB’s efforts in convincing Sri Lanka Cricket to send their team for an ODI and T20I series, which will be played from September 27 till October 9 in Pakistan.

Following constitutional changes, the BoG also reviewed and approved the revised powers and functions of the PCB chairman, chief executive, chief operating and the chief financial officers.
