Accoridng to rules, the incumbent prime minister is the PCB’s patron. Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar has already approved Naqvi’s nomination, the sources added.

The BoG is made up of 10 members and Naqvi is likely to take up the spot vacated by Zaka Ashraf.

After he becomes a member of the BoG, Naqvi will be able to contest the election for the chairman of PCB.

However, it is not clear when Naqvi will become part of the PCB as he is still the CM Punjab.

In 2013, Najam Sethi had been made PCB chairman after serving as Punjab’s caretaker CM.
