Ijaz Butt, a former leader of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), passed away on Thursday in Lahore.

Arif Saeed, the 85-year-old’s son-in-law, claims that the man was ill for a protracted period of time.

Between 2008 and 2011, Butt served as the PCB’s chairman, during which time there were numerous team management appointments and dismissals.

“The news of the passing of former Test cricketer and ex-PCB chairman Ijaz Butt saddens the PCB. His family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers,” the PCB said in a brief statement posted on its official Twitter account.

Butt, a former wicketkeeper-batter, made his Test debut in 1958–1959 as an opener against the West Indies, scoring 41 not out in a 10-wicket victory.

In December 1959, at Karachi, he made his only half-century while playing twice against Australia.

In eight Test matches, he totaled 279 runs at an average of 19.92. Additionally, he participated in 67 first-class games and scored more than 3,000 runs.
