As the Islamabad High Court directed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to hold elections, former spin bowler Abdul Qadir says he is willing to contest for the post of board’s chairman.

Talking to newsmen in Lahore, Qadir said it’s the first time the PCB wais going to hold elections and things are going in the right direction after the court’s order.

The IHC has barred Najam Sethi from working as PCB chairman and also suspended the Interim Management Committee (IMC), formed by the prime minister.

The court has set up an election committee headed by retired Justice Munir A. Sheikh that will hold the board’s elections by the third week of next month. Until then, board’s secretary will look after the PCB’s affairs.

Qadir said he would work for the betterment of the PCB and would do everything necessary to restore the image of Pakistan cricket within the country and abroad. He said he had his say across the world as a cricketer and he would try his best for the return of international cricket in Pakistan.

The former spinner has worked for the PCB, including his job as chairman selectors. He was also one of the candidates when Pakistan was looking for team’s head coach before Dav Whatmore’s appointment.
