Pakistan General Elections 2018 were held on July 25th. Most of the results of the election have been announced and clearly, PTI is in the lead.
As Imran Khan will become the Prime Minister of Pakistan, rumor is that Pakistan’s cricket regulatory body will be changed and former cricketer Wasim Akram will be made the Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
As per a cricketing website, CricTracker Sultan of Swing will be appointed as the new PCB Chairman. The website claimed that a family source said, “ Yes, Wasim is a front-runner for becoming next PCB chairperson. He’s been associated with IK since both legends used to play cricket for Pakistan and now both ready to take the country on new heights.”
Imran Khan has never been on friendly terms with present PCB Chairman Najam Sethi as Khan believes that a former cricketer should lead a cricket board without any favoritism.
There has been no confirmation about this from Wasim Akram or his wife Shaniera Akram but we all know for sure that Akram voted for Imran Khan in the Elections 2018 and encouraged others to do the same.
His wife Shaniera earlier tweeted, “After a long over night flight from the Uk to Pakistan with 3 children, virtually no sleep and a very early flight to Lahore, nothing stopped my husband from his Pakistani duties. Well done

Wasim Akram also congratulated Imran Khan on becoming the Prime Minister of Pakistan and said, “Congratulating the new Prime Minister of our Country. It was all very formal but I still got to call him Skipper.”

Imran Khan and Wasim Akram are quite close and it will be a big step if Wasim Akram becomes PCB Chairman.
