    "I am hopeful that more teams will come and play in Pakistan" : Haroon Lorgat

    The former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the International Cricket Council (ICC), Haroon Lorgat believes that the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has done a great job to revolutionize cricket in Pakistan.

    Lorgat in a press conference in Lahore said that the PSL is has been the game changer for Pakistan cricket, which set new cultures within no time.

    “Sport is something really unites you and this is what PSL has done for cricket enthusiastic fans in the country,” he said.

    He said that the league has also paved the way for the revival of cricket in Pakistan which was the prior target to achieve by the board.

    “The revival of International cricket was a tough task for the PCB but I think after PSL this issue has started to resolve,” he said.

    He was quick to add that more high-profile teams would travel to Pakistan if the PCB keep their hard work continue on the issue.

    “I am hopeful that more teams will come and play in Pakistan to further strengthen their grip on this matter,” he added.

    He also praised the youngsters like Hasan Ali and Shadab Khan of for their contribution in bringing a huge difference in their Pakistan team’s performance in recent times.

    “The youngsters like Hassan Ali, Shadab Khan and others have played a mind-blowing role to bring Pakistan back on track,” he stated.

    Haroon Lorgat served as the CEO of ICC from 2008 to 2012. He also provided his services as a consultant to PCB and Sri Lanka Cricket.

    In 2016, he became the CEO of Cricket South Africa (CSA) but due to getting bad relations with the board in 2017, he had to resign from his post immediately.

    Mani said he would be differentiating between the roles of CEO and Chairman. So may be he came to interview for the CEO position

    I hope he isn't here to poach a senior role in the PCB. The guy wrecked South African cricket with his hare-brained scheme to launch the Global T20 tournament and his previous dealings with the BCCI showed a blatant disregard for diplomacy (not that it matters much for the PCB). I suspect he is mates with Mani from their time together at the ICC.

    Correction: Lorgat only joined the ICC in 2008, a full two years after Mani had left. He has however served as a consultant to the PCB while Zaka Ashraf was PCB chairman in 2012.

    CSA hasn't still recovered from his exemplary services for Global League T20. Perfect person to have in PCB.
