The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed Faisal Hasnain as the new chief executive on Monday. 

He will formally assume charge in January 2022.

The PCB statement said Hasnain was selected after a “robust recruitment process”.

“Hasnain is the UK qualified Chartered Accountant and has had a professional career of over 35 years in high-profile finance and sports administration roles with some of the world’s leading blue-chip organisations. This includes his role in Monaco and Dubai as the chief financial officer (CFO) of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and as the Managing Director of Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC),” the PCB said in the statement.

PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja said that he was “delighted” to confirm the appointment and welcomed Hasnain to the Pakistani cricketing family.

“Faisal is a familiar figure in world cricket and is highly regarded, respected, and trusted for his excellence in corporate governance, financial management, and commercial acumen. With the plans I have for the PCB, Faisal will be a perfect fit as he can utilise his vast experience and knowledge to help us achieve our commercial and financial objectives of making Pakistan cricket bigger and stronger,” PCB  quoted Ramiz Raja’s saying in the statement.

Hasnain will be replacing the post left vacant by Wasim Khan, who stepped down in September, following the appointment of Ramiz Raja as the board’s new chairman.
