LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Friday the appointment of Sami-ul-Hasan Burney as the Director of Media and Communications.

Burney assumed the role shortly after renowned Pakistan sports journalist Aalia Rasheed resigned from the position.

“Dear friends, I have stepped down as Director of Media & Communications at PCB,” Rasheed shared on X, previously known as Twitter. Sami-ul-Hasan Burney had previously served as PCB’s Director of Media but had stepped down when Zaka Ashraf assumed leadership of the board last year.

“The Pakistan Cricket Board has named Sami Ul Hasan Burney as the new Head of Media and Communications,” the PCB announced in a brief statement posted on X. It is worth noting that Pakistan cricketers are presently engaged in a physical fitness camp, conducted in collaboration with the Pakistan Army, to prepare for the upcoming five-match home T20I series against New Zealand.

The camp commenced on March 26 and is scheduled to conclude on April 8. New Zealand is expected to arrive in Pakistan on April 14 for the crucial series, leading up to the ICC Men’s T20I World Cup.

Rawalpindi’s Pindi Cricket Stadium will host the first three T20Is between Pakistan and New Zealand on April 18, 20, and 21.

The teams will then head to Lahore to compete in the remaining two T20Is on April 25 and 27, respectively.
