Lahore, Sep 16 (UNI) Former captains Javed Miandad and Rameez Raja are the front-runners to become Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) CEO, according to sources.
Punjab Governor Salman Taseer in all probabilty will become the new chairman of the PCB to be appointed by Paksitan President Asif Ali Zardari.
''Why not, Taseer is very close to President Zardari and is an old Pakistan People's Party loyalist. He has also worked as treasurer of the board and was involved in the organization of 1996 World Cup,'' a top board source said.
''Taseer will be consulted for the post of chief executive and former greats Javed Miandad and Rameez Raja are being seen as viable options to work with him. Miandad is also in the good books of Zardari,'' the source added.
However, reports also suggest that Taseer is interested in the coveted post.
''He is Lahore-based and can find time for cricket. The board now functions like a corporate body so the chairman has to be there only for key decisions,'' the source said.
