Mr Najam Sethi: “I congratulate Mr Rana on his appointment as the PCB Election Commissioner. This is one of the most important and critical appointments as we embark upon democratising the PCB by having elected representatives on the Board of Governors. I wish Mr Rana all the best and assure him of my complete support in this process.”

Mr Rana: “I want to thank the PCB Patron for assigning me this responsibility. I aim to deliver my obligations without any fear or favour in an open and transparent manner. I will now set election timelines and aim to work closely with the Deputy Election Commissioners to complete the process so that elected representatives can be appointed to the Board of Governors.”

As part of the process, the voters list of the district cricket associations will be uploaded on the PCB website on Wednesday, 3 March, following which the voters will have four days to file objections.
