Chahat Fateh Ali Khan Offers to Lead PCB Post-World Cup Defeat

Chahat Fateh Ali Khan, known for his off-key singing on social media, has made a surprising offer to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) following Pakistan’s exit from the ICC T20 World Cup.

Khan, currently in London promoting his debut film Sabak, shared his views on the national team’s performance during an interview with a Pakistani TV channel. He suggested that the PCB needs a seasoned cricketer as its chairman and proposed himself for the role.

“If appointed chairman, I will spend four days a week on the ground, personally reviewing players’ performance and coaching,” Khan claimed.

He further explained, “I will select only one coach for the national team and personally oversee how my chosen coach is training the team.”

When asked if he implied that Mohsin Naqvi should be removed as chairman, Khan clarified, “It’s not about that. I just want Mr. Mohsin Naqvi to calmly consider my offer.”

Khan noted that Naqvi, in addition to being the PCB chairman, also serves as the Federal Minister for Interior, a role with substantial responsibilities. “That’s why I think he should hand over the PCB chairman duties to me,” Khan added.

He emphasized that he was not criticizing Naqvi but felt that his experience in first-class cricket and his passion for the game qualified him for the position. “I have played first-class cricket; I have experience in the sport, and cricket is my first love,” Khan asserted.

He concluded by stating that the national players need to be mentally strong, and he would work on strengthening the team both mentally and emotionally.
