PM Imran not interfering in cricket affairs: PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani

Press Trust of India  |  Karachi 

PCB has rejected the impression that Imran Khan, who had led the country to triumph, is meddling in affairs.

"He doesn't interfere at all. But he has made it clear that he wants to see a system in free of politicisation and a internal structure which is based on quality rather than quantity," Mani said in

Imran, in his position as patron-in-chief of the Board (PCB), nominated Mani for the position of PCB after resigned last year.

Mani admitted that the PCB was a very politicised institution and time was required to change the culture and working in the board.

"The task given to me is to make our domestic structure a quality one and to streamline things in the board to such an extent that it becomes an exemplary institution and is second to none among the boards of the world."

Mani also sought to dispel the impression that because of pressure from Imran, the PCB would end the role of departments in domestic cricket in its new structure.

"We are not finishing departments as they have a role to play in cricket but we are trying to improve our domestic set-up," he added.

Mani said Imran wanted to see Pakistan become a consistent winning side whose cricket system was taken as an example by other Boards.
