PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan underwent a heart surgery in England last week after medical reports confirmed he had blockages in his arteries. Shaharyar had a valve replaced successfully at Royal Brompton Hospital and was expected to return to his London residence later this month.Family sources confirmed Shaharyar had been shifted from the intensive-care unit to a ward and his recovery process was well on track. He is likely to be discharged from hospital in the next ten days but may take longer to return to a normal routine.Shaharyar has had diabetes for the last 20 years and while the condition was controlled through diet, it affected his heart. He recently complained of breathing trouble after a trip to Sri Lanka where he took over as president of the Asian Cricket Council.Shaharyar, 82, had recently received the backing of Pakistans Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who is also the chief patron of the PCB, to continue as chairman until the end of his three-year term in August 2017. ESPNcricinfo understood, however, that Shaharyar may step down if doctors advised him three months rest and intensive care as part of his rehabilitation. He has been fulfilling his duties related to the PCB remotely, through phone calls and emails, during his time in London.According to the PCB constitution, in case of a chairmans absence from duty, the board of governors may elect an acting chairman from among the members. The acting chairman will have limited powers and will oversee the management of the board on a day-to-day basis. If the office of chairman was vacated for any reason, the PCBs constitution stated the Prime Minister of Pakistan can request the election commissioner to hold a fresh election. A source in the Prime Ministers office confirmed Shaharyar was given a go-ahead by Sharif in June but there could be a change in the coming months, subject to the political situation.The power struggle between Shaharyar and former chairman Najam Sethi, who leads the three-member executive committee, has been prominent in the PCB. The executive committees power has been limited to making recommendations but Sethi has exerted considerable influence over major decisions within the board, thus creating a rift with Shaharyar. It was understood that Shaharyars decision to step down could have paved the way for Sethi to once again take over the position of the PCB chairman. However, an official in the Prime Ministers office indicated that the tenures of both Shaharyar and Sethi might come to an end in the not-too-distant future, because both were direct nominees of the PCBs governing board.

Nolan punched Oilers forward Jesse Joensuu in the jaw in front of the Kings goal during a scrum.Guillem Balague believes lingering muscle problems could partly explain Lionel Messis dip in form for Barcelona. The Argentina international failed to score for the fifth consecutive game as his side crashed out of the Champions League to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.And Balague, who says Messis recent tendency to drop into midfield is limiting his effectiveness, thinks the Barca star is in pain. Lionel Messi was largely on the periphery as Barcelona were knocked out by Atletico Madrid When asked to explain Messis form on Sky Sports News HQ, Balague said: He has not scored in five games, and Barcelona depend on a very good Messi.Theres two ways to explain this. First, you look at him and hes dropping deeper, hes walking instead of running - although he normally does that - and he doesnt look as sharp. Whats up with Barca? Barcelona out: Reliance on Messi, Neymar and Suarez proves costly When he doesnt feel sharp he doesnt get in the box. As a midfielder, hes good but hes not that great.But you can also explain it in a different way. Minutes after the Atletico Madrid game finished a story came out that he has been struggling with muscle problems. Not an injury as such, but about three weeks ago he went to Venice to see a nutritionist and he was asking him, Why is it I dont feel well at the moment?It could be the training and hes in pain certainly, and all those things have made him perform at a lesser level.Some will say its just excuses, but look back at his last five games and you can see it hasnt been the same Messi. Ive checked with the family and the muscle issues are one of the problems that is worrying him. Antoine Griezmann scored once in each half to send Atletico Madrid into the Champions League semi-finals Barca have lost three of their last four matches in all competitions, but sit three points clear of Atletico in La Liga and remain on course for a league and cup double.And Balague believes La Liga and Copa Del Rey titles will still represent a strong season, even if they failed in their pursuit of back-to-back trebles. This is what were used to seeing from Lionel Messi.dddddddddddd They can still win the league and the cup, but nobody is talking about that because it has been a surprising demise in the last month, he added.Winning after winning is so difficult and to keep at that level for so long is almost impossible.Imagine if they do win the league, it means they will have had a good season, but if they also beat Sevilla in the cup, its a very good season. But at this point the Champions League blurs everything else and it looks like something is missing. Luis Enrique took full responsibility for Barcelonas Champions League defeat The main culprit according to the media in Catalonia is Luis Enrique, who hasnt done some of the things that made Barcelona good last season.Enrique has to be the coach and say Neymar you havent scored since mid-March and Messi perhaps you should rest too.But now there are seven games left and its difficult to tell them that because everyone wants to play as soon as possible and bounce back from what has been a hurtful defeat.
