Report  Web Desk : LAHORE: The appointment of Najam Sethi as Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman has on Saturday been challenged in the Lahore High Court (LHC). The petitioner, Advocate Nasir Iqbal, has taken the stance that Sethi and Arif Ejaz have been unlawfully appointed as the members of board of governors. It has been stated that Sethi was nominated for the chairmanship by the ousted premier Nawaz Sharif, and his orders have become null and void after his disqualification. It is worth mentioning here that Najam Sethi was elected unopposed as the PCB chief on August 9 in a special meeting of board of governors at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Let it be known that Sethi’s nomination was also challenged in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) earlier. 02
