Prime Minister Imran Khan, in his role as patron of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), nominated Ramiz to the governing board Friday after Ehsan Mani declined to accept a short-term extension when his three-year term expired this week.

Imran had met with both Ehsan and Ramiz before nominating the former test opener. The patron's nominee traditionally gets elected chairman, as Ehsan was three years ago.

A vote is scheduled for September 13 in Lahore. The PCB's governing board comprises eight members, including its Chief Executive Wasim Khan.

Imran and Ramiz were teammates on the 1992 World Cup squad that beat England in the final.

The 59-year-old Ramiz had told reporters that during his meeting with Imran he highlighted the inconsistent performances of the team in international matches.

The former Pakistan captain scored 2,833 runs in 57 Test matches and 5,841 runs in 198 ODIs before quitting in 1997. He also served as chief executive of the PCB but established his name more when he took up commentary and became the "voice of Pakistan."
