Shaharyar Khan passed away earlier today in Lahore at the age of 89. He was manager of the Pakistan team on two occasions including their tour of India in 1999 and the ICC World Cup in 2003.

He came from the royal family of Bhopal and also authored several books related to cricket. In last year’s interview, he regretted his inability to revive the bilateral test cricket bond with India during his last tenure as chairman, which had been suspended since 2007.

During his chairman tenure for the first time, Pakistan forfeited against England in the Oval test in 2006, for which he held captain Inzamam-ul-Haq was responsible.

Mohsin Naqvi who took over the chairman position from Zaka Ashraf said, “On behalf of the PCB, I express my deep condolences and grief over the passing of former Chairman Shaharyar Khan. He was a fine administrator and served Pakistan Cricket with utmost dedication.

“Pakistan Cricket will stay indebted to the late Shaharyar Khan for his commendable role as head of the board and for his services in the growth and development of the game in the country,” said Moshin Naqvi.
