PESHAWAR, 3 June: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has nominated former Test cricketer Zaheer Abbas for the post of the International Cricket Council (ICC) president.

The name of Mr Abbas will be sent to the ICC after formal approval by the PCB governing board. The PCB had earlier nominated Najam Sethi for the coveted post but after his refusal the name of Mr Abbas has been proposed.

The 67-year-old Mr Abbas has played 78 Tests and 62 one-day matches. He is the only Pakistani batsman to score 100 first-class centuries.

The new ICC president will take over the charge of his office from 1 July.
