LAHORE, August 11 (INP) – Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi on Saturday has decided to tender his resignation after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan’s oath as Prime Minister of Pakistan.
According to sources, Sethi said that the decision to quit has been taken to save Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Earlier, PTI had written a letter to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) requesting the anti-graft watchdog to open an investigation over alleged corruption against Sethi.
