Ijaz Butt, a confrontational but solid chief in Pakistan died at the age of 85


Pakistan cricket lost one of its generally disputable, energetic, and forceful chiefs when the steadfast Ijaz Butt passed on in his old neighborhood of Lahore because of medical issues.

When the callous Ijaz Butt kicked the bucket in his country of Lahore because of well-being concerns, Pakistan cricket lost one of its generally disputable, vivid, and powerful officials. He addressed Pakistan in eight Tests and held different critical regulatory positions. Butt did everything in his own particular manner, from being an individual from the 1987 Dependence World Cup coordinating panel to a four-year spell as secretary of the Pakistan Cricket Board during the 1980s to dealing with the senior crew lastly directing the PCB from 2008 to 2011.

Possibly, no other cricket board is essentially a major area of strength for As Butt. The previous Leader of Pakistan, Asif Ali, delegated Ijaz Butt as the PCB boss in 2008. Zardari once proposed in a gathering that it would be outside the realm of possibilities for them to move the public T20 title from Lahore to Karachi according to their cravings.

Nothing exemplified this better than the suspension of experienced players like Mohammad Yousuf, Younis Khan, Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, and Kamran Akmal.
