Pakistan Cricket Board acting chairman Najam Sethi a new code of conduct will be introduced for officials and players so that no board or team member would indulge in unconstitutional and illegal activities. Talking to the media in Lahore, he said he did not want to take a step which would later be challenged in courts.

The Sindh High Court (SHC) ordered to limit Sethi’s authority so that he could not take key decisions as the acting chairman. The court has confined his powers to a few articles of the PCB’s constitution. The petition was filed by Pakistan former captain Rashid Latif, and the SHC has directed Sethi to exercise his power only under the clauses ‘a’ to ‘e’ of the article 6 (1). These clauses restrict chairman to only calling the board’s meeting, leading them and postponing them.

Sethi’s appointment has been under suspicion ever since Zaka Ashraf was suspended. Sethi’s problems have increased after the SHC’s order as the Islamabad High Court has already ordered him hold elections within 90 days of Ashraf’s suspension.

But what a ‘professional’ journalist he is. He responded all this by saying that he would run for the chairman’s election to become its permanent supreme.

He also said he would visit West Indies on a short tour so that he himself understands the team’s issues. Pakistan are in the West Indies to play a limited-overs series.
