    Former Pakistan cricketer Ramiz Raja has been formally elected PCB chairman for a term of three years.
    He won unopposed, being the only one to have submitted his nomination papers for the post and voted in by six PCB governing board members.
    Raja was nominated directly on August 27th by Pakistan’s Prime Minister and the PCB’s patron-in-chief Imran Khan.
    According to ESPN Cricinfo, this is the 36th term of a PCB chairman, and Raja is the 30th person to assume the role.
    He has since pledged to “reset the direction” of Pakistan cricket, hinting at an overhaul of the mindset of Pakistan cricket across the board.
