ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court (IHC) has once against restored Zaka Ashraf as the boss of Pakistan Cricket declaring that Najam Sethi’s appointment as Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was illegal.
The IHC decision came after a petition challenging Ashraf’s sacking in February by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the patron of the PCB, who appointed an 11-strong interim committee led by Najam Sethi to run the board.
The IHC ruling on Saturday also declared invalid the notification issued on February 10 after the prime minister appointed the interim committee to run the affairs of the board.
The court ruling has also disqualified Najam Sethi as chief of the cricket board.
Ashraf was previously unseated as PCB chairman by a court order in May last year after doubts over his election kicked off a series of legal challenges that critics say has damaged the sport in Pakistan.
