The Pakistan Cricket Board has reappointed Sami Ul Hasan as Director – Media and Communications, a position he held from 1 March 2019 to 20 July 2023. Sami’s move from the Special Projects department to the Media and Communications department was announced after Aaliya Rasheed announced via X platform that she had resigned.
