In a major decision, Ramiz Raja has been removed as chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board. According to Pakistan media, Najam Sethi has been reappointed following national team's back-to-back Test defeats to England at home.

An official announcement regarding the replacement is yet to be made by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Najam Sethi played an important role in staging and running the Pakistan Super League in a successful manner.

Earlier, speculation was rife that a lobby, led by former disgruntled members of the Board, launched a campaign to have Ramiz removed as PCB chairman.

This lobby claimed that something has been going on behind the scenes and the law ministry has sent a summary to the Prime Minister, who is the patron of the Board, for a change in guard in the PCB.

"Yes, something is going on definitely. Rumors are strong that Najam Sethi who recently met with the premier at a function in Lahore might be called up to replace Ramiz as Chairman," one former PCB member said.

England have already clinched the three-match Test series after winning the first two matches. The third Test is currently going on in Karachi.
