PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani said: “The PCB is saddened by the news of Munaf’s passing away. Munaf was one of those respected cricketers who made their name at the first-class level in the early days of Pakistan cricket. We share the grief of his friends and friendly and express our deepest sympathies.”
