Chahat Fateh Ali Khan

LONDON: Chahat Fateh Ali Khan, a self-proclaimed singer notorious for his off-key social media performances, has proposed himself as a candidate for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairmanship following Pakistan’s exit from the ICC T20 World Cup.

In an interview with a private Pakistani TV channel during a movie promotional event, Khan critiqued the national team’s disappointing performance and suggested that the PCB needs an experienced cricketer at its helm. He expressed his willingness to assume the role.

“If appointed chairman, I would personally oversee player performances and coaching four days a week,” Khan stated. He emphasized his intent to appoint a single coach for the national team and to ensure the quality of coaching personally.

When asked about replacing current chairman Mohsin Naqvi, Khan clarified, “I am not criticising Naqvi. I just want him to consider my offer. Given his significant responsibilities as interior minister, I believe he should delegate the PCB chairmanship to me.”

Khan highlighted his first-class cricket experience, having played in the 1983-84 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy for Lahore, and stressed the importance of mental and emotional resilience within the team.

Born Kashif Rana, Chahat Fateh Ali Khan played two first-class matches, scoring 16 runs across three innings before relocating to the UK, where he played club cricket for 12 years.
