Former star cricketer Rawalpindi express Shoaib Akhtar has been appointed as the adviser to the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on cricket affairs, the board’s head said Friday night on social media, adding that he will also take on the role of its brand ambassador.Akhtar, 42, has previously been critical of Najam Sethi during his time as chairman. In 2013, he said that Pakistan cricket had deteriorated under Sethi, and that he needed to understand he was now “a chairman and not a TV anchor”. In 2015, after Pakistan’s heavy defeat to West Indies in the World Cup, Akhtar laid blame on Sethi and the entire PCB management. In addition, he had several clashes with the PCB as a player during a 14-year career.
Akhtar, 42, holds the record for the fastest ball delivered in recorded cricket history (100.2 mph). He responded positively to the announcement, saying he wanted “to take Pakistan cricket to the next level”.for more cricket score, live cricket score, ipl live score, live cricket streaming, live cricket match, ipl score, cricket news, cricket live ]]>
