Profile

Nasim Ashraf took over as chairman of the PCB from Shaharyar Khan in October 2006, his CV revealing an unimpressive three-match first class career but a love for cricket. Reports suggested at the time that the board's mishandling of the Oval ball-tampering situation led to Shaharyar's ouster. Ashraf, a qualified doctor who had served on the board's ad-hoc committee under Shaharyar, took over and immediately found himself presiding a period of such chaos, even the normally volatile environs of Pakistan cricket had never seen anything like it. His first job, after reinstating Younis Khan as a captain a day after he had stormed off, was to deal with the doping crisis involving Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif. He also issued some statements highlighting his concern over the Pakistan team's growing religiosity, a move which won him few fans. The biggest blow came at the World Cup where coupled with the team's early exit, Pakistan had to cope with the loss of coach Bob Woolmer, who died a day after Pakistan lost to Ireland. Ashraf, amid growing pressure, handed in his resignation in the aftermath, only for it to be rejected by the Patron of the PCB, President Pervez Musharraf. Since the World Cup, Ashraf has heralded yet another new dawn in Pakistan cricket; the domestic structure has changed, a new culture of accountability and transparency within the board is promised, a new captain and coach are on board and promises have been made aplenty. In July 2008, he took over as president of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) from Arjuna Ranatunga while still the PCB chairman. A month later, on the same day that General Pervez Musharraf resigned as Pakistan's president, Ashraf stepped down as PCB chairman.
