PCB is under direct control of the central government in Pakistan. Now Najam Sethi might replace him as a chairman.
Former Pakistan captain and 1992 World Cup winner Raja was elected unanimously and unopposed as the PCB’s 36th chairman for three-year term in September 2022. Some reports state that a faction in PCB was not very happy with the working style of Ramiz Raja. And with Pakistan losing two-Test series at home, against Australia and England respectively, his time was almost over.

Sethi has served the board as its chairman thrice in 2013, 2014 and 2017.
