The former career diplomat has been in London since last two months and underwent a heart surgery but has made a remarkable recovery despite his age of 83. “Yes Shaharyar will reach Lahore on Thursday morning and will be taking charge of the PCB affairs as soon he reaches home,” one source in the PCB told PTI.

Khan was initially brought in as Chairman in place of Najam Sethi for two years which expired last August. “But he is now keen to carry on and he is fine now. This is bad news for those who wanted to see his back from the board,” another source said. ALSO READ: Shane Watson hits back at Michael Clarke over ‘tumour’ jibe  Khan was also unable to attend the ICC executive board meeting in Cape Town recently and Pakistan was represented by the head of the exe…
