The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have announced that they will take no further action against chief selector Moin Khan.

According to media reports, the board was going to ask Moin to resign after he visited a casino in Christchurch just two days before the national team were pummelled by 150 runs in their World Cup match against the West Indies.

Despite being asked to return home by PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan, it is understood that Moin will keep hold of his job.

“I had a meeting with Moin for 30 to 40 minutes and I asked him to clarify what exactly happened there,” the PCB chairman said. “He said he already gave a statement that he accepted that it was inappropriate to have a dinner in casino. He also said he apologised for his visit that created an uproar but he didn’t go for any gambling there. It was merely a dinner along with his wife and friends. He has apologised to us and to the nation.

“I understand that Moin didn’t violate any disciplinary code but still he is apologising for his visit to a casino, which he realised was inappropriate and wrong. His statement is not contrary to our investigation so the matter is now closed.”
