Last month, the cricket board allegedly approved a allowance of 3 billion rupees ($29 million) and will be opposite a shortfall of 500 million rupees in the year 2013-14.
The deficit is mostly because the PCB has not been adept to owner any major worldwide group for the last four years after gunmen assaulted the team coach of Sri Lanka, murdering six policeman agents and a van person driving.
The reshuffling at the top of the PCB took location earlier this year when Ashraf got himself nominated for the next four years, initiating a dispute in the Islamabad High Court .
The court not only suspended Ashraf but inquired the interim head to conduct new elections and gaze into the day-to-day activities of the PCB. although, it halted Sethi — who was appointed by major minister Nawaz Sharif — from taking any foremost conclusions such as the appointment of the selection managing group.
