According to a source, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) may ask chief selector Moin Khan to resign after he visited a casino in Christchurch just two days before the national team’s 150-run loss to the West Indies.
Even though the PCB stated that they will not be taking any further action against Khan, the source believes that the board will ask him to resign.
“There is a strong lobby in the board which wants Shaharyar to ask Moin to resign himself after the World Cup,” the source told PTI. “There is little chance that Moin would be allowed to continue as the chief selector even though he enjoys the strong backing of former Chairman Najam Sethi who still carries clout in the board as Chairman of the Executive Committee and as a member of the Board of Governors.
“The fact is that when the channels broke the news of Moin visiting the Casino and it snowballed into a major controversy. Moin was asked by the officials of the board to take a decision and announce he will return to Pakistan.
“Unfortunately when Moin refused to comply it upset Shaharyar who then himself called up Moin and told him to return home immediately.”
