The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) plans to host an award ceremony to honour three former captains of the Pakistan team in September, PCB Chairman Najam Sethi told DawnNews on Tuesday.

"We plan to arrange a special award ceremony for former captains Misbah ul Haq, Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi," said the chairman. "They served Pakistan for a long period and deserve appreciation."

Sethi further said that top players from the team will also be honoured at the ceremony.

"We will honour and appreciate our top players and umpires in the same award ceremony to encourage them," he said.

The board is scheduled to host a farewell ceremony for former chairman Shaharyar Khan on Wednesday.

Khan was elected to serve as chairman in 2014. During his three-year term, Sethi served as the board's executive committee chief.

Last week, the board elected Sethi to serve as its 30th chairman, replacing Khan.

Sethi, who is heading the successful Pakistan Super League, was elected unopposed and will serve a three-year term.
