Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) Chief, Ijaz Butt, who has come under severe criticism for his role in handling Pakistan Cricket has reportedly decided to resign from his post after his return from London.
Media reports suggests that Butt will cite health ground to quit his post. He will most likely to submit his resignation to Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari in a few days.
Just few days earlier, Butt was given strict orders by the Pakistan government to form a new set up and appoint new officials in the PCB in order to extend his term which is due to end soon.
Apart from Butt, the Assembly also had summoned the boards legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi, former team manager Yawar Saeed, coaches Waqar Younis, Aaqib Javed and Ejaz Ahmed and chief selector Mohsin Khan to the hearing.
Pakistan cricket was caught in the midst of controversy recently with three players including Test captain Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Aamer were alleged to have been involved in spot-fixing by British Tabloid, News of the World.
The ICC provisionally suspended the trio, leaving Pakistan without a Test captain.
