Pakistan’s hopes of progressing to the World Cup semi finals have been dealt a blow with facing consecutive humiliated defeats. Soon after the Pakistan crcicket team’s fitness and discipline scandal, PCB’s Cricket Committee Chairman Mohsin Khan on Thursday (June 20) became the first casualty of Pakistan’s disastrous World Cup campaign as he was reportedly sacked by the board.
In a press statement on Thursday (June 20), the PCB said Mohsin Khan expressed his willingness to be released from his current position during a recent meeting with PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani, who accepted his request. “It is always difficult to let go someone of Mohsin’s stature and caliber, but we respect his decision. I am thankful to Mohsin for his contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors,” PCB chairman Ehsan Mani was quoted as saying.
Mohsin Khan said “My services are always available for Pakistan cricket at a suitable position in view of my past record,” he said. The Board said its Managing Director, Wasim Khan, would now act as the Chair of the PCB Cricket Committee.
According to the PCB, the special committee will carry out a robust review of the Pakistan cricket team’s performance over the past three years. Other members of the committee include former Pakistan captains Wasim Akram and Misbah-ul-Haq, and former cricketer and head of the women’s selection committee Urooj Mumtaz.
