Karachi:

Pakistan Cricket Board's Chief Operating Officer Saleem Altaf is all set to be sacked at the PCB's next Governing Council meeting after a bitter fallout with Board Chairman Ejaz Butt.

Sources close to Altaf confirmed that the former Test player was also aware of such a possibility at the meeting on Thursday.

"Yes it is true that Butt will ask the Governing council members to change the COO in Karachi as he is not happy with the fact that Altaf has started questioning his decisions," one source confirmed.

He said relations between Butt and Altaf have soured in recent days.

"Altaf was unhappy that no file was moving forward in the board as Butt refused to listen to either him or other senior officials," the source said.

When contacted, Altaf said that he was aware that Butt wanted to replace him as COO. "If the governing council members want to do this I have no objections," Altaf said.

Sources close to Altaf said he has started efforts to save his position.

Butt,on the other hand, played down the issue claiming he was not aware of any such move to remove Altaf.

"I don't know. You should ask the director HR, he would know," Butt said.
