Sports Desk KARACHI - A constitutional crisis has developed in Pakistan cricket after the government failed to notify the appointment of a new PCB chairman despite the completion of incumbent Ijaz Butt's three-year term. Legal experts, former PCB chairmen and ex-players voiced concern over the fact that Butt was still continuing to function as chairman despite the expiry of his term on Saturday. "To be honest under the existing board constitution Ijaz Butt is no longer authorized to represent Pakistan at any forum including the ICC meeting," former PCB chairman and career diplomat, Shaharyar Khan said. Butt left for Dubai the day his term expired with the presidency not issuing any notification about whether he would continue or someone in the board would be acting chairman until a new head was appointed. Under the constitution, the president appoints the chairman of the board in his capacity as chief patron of cricket. Shaharyar Khan said that Butt should not have gone to attend the ICC meeting as constitutionally he was no longer chairman. "He should have avoided it because from what I have studied about the constitution he is no longer authorized to represent or sign any document on behalf of Pakistan cricket," Khan said. He noted that there was always a possibility that with the PCB and ICC relations not very warm someone at the executive board might raise the issue of whether Butt could attend the executive board meeting.
