In the fourth-round match of the Pakistan Cup at the NBP Sports Complex on Friday, the Sindh team bundled out KP for a paltry 40 runs, the lowest in Pakistan Cup’s history.

Dahani took six wickets and conceded only 19 runs in his ten overs, while Hamza bowled eight overs and conceded only 12 runs while taking four wickets to help Sindh win by four wickets.

Sindh also lost six wickets before achieving the target, with spinner, Sajid Khan taking three wickets and Khalid Usman bagging two wickets from five overs.

Najam Sethi is likely to replace Ramiz Raja as the Chairman of PCB after Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif reportedly ordered major changes in the setup.

After taking power, PM Shehbaz Sharif had announced the revival of departmental cricket in the country which had been suspended by former premier Imran Khan.

However, PM Shehbaz had shown trust in Ramiz Raja, assuring him that he will continue his work in the position.

While the PM has now reportedly ordered to restore the Constitution of PCB 2014 under which departmental cricket will be restarted, the recent reports also suggest a major change in the cricketing establishment.

According to reports, PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja is expected to leave the office and the former Chairman Najam Sethi has a strong chance of making a comeback at the helm of PCB.

What lends credence to the reports is the worth-mentioning fact that former PCB Chairman Najam Sethi held a meeting with PM Shehbaz earlier today in Lahore.
