LAHORE - The reports of change in Pakistan Cricket Board's top management are doing the rounds these days in the backdrop of financial mismanagement and Pakistan cricket team's spineless show in Sri Lanka. Reports suggested that one of the governing board members and a technocrat close to the chief patron would soon be replacing PCB chairman Ijaz Butt. Mr Ijaz Butt, however, is under immense pressure to quit following a series of setbacks during his turbulent ten-month stint. The critics are having a field day following the team's bad showing in the pearl island and the authorities do not seem satisfied with Ijaz Butt's performance. During his 10-month stint, Mr Butt was faced with a number of issues including the shifting of the Champions Trophy, matches of the World Cup, attack on the Sri Lanka team and following failure on every count, team's poor performance amid news of rifts and fixing seemed like ultimate disasters. The dissatisfaction of the authorities towards exacerbated when the Senate and National Assembly Standing Committees on Sports demanded action against him and even asked the president to get rid of him as soon as possible. That was not all for him because the sports ministry, which earlier supported him in the chair, also recommended to the president to replace Butt with some other person. He did not even find support in former test and in yet another story of mismanagement, three top former test cricketers, handpicked by Mr Butt himself, stepped aside from his set up. Pakistan cricket has always been mired in controversies and the number of controversies in the last ten months surpassed all the stats of previous boards. The last chairman Dr Naseem Ashraf, though was not much popular among the cricket circles, had somehow kept Pakistan in the hunt for the Champions Trophy and the 2011 World Cup and earlier, Shaharyar Khan managed to revive the Pakistan and India bilateral cricket series with the diplomatic support and former players including Ramiz Raja. But the last 10 months have been devastating for the PCB and the PCB's approach towards handling the matters at the top was being taken as the real cause of continuous failures.
