Reports: Moin Khan to be sacked as PCB Chief Selector
According to reports, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Selector Moin Khan, will be sacked from his role as the Chief Selector after the World Cup. The former Pakistani wicket-keeper was recalled from Down Under after reports emerged of him gambling in a casino.
A source said that Khan has been told that he will be relieved of his duties after the World Cup irrespective of where Pakistan finish at the tournament.
The source said, “Moin will be released from his duties after the World Cup and Shaharyar Khan has already told his associates to start interviewing suitable available candidates for the new selection committee.
“Before Shaharyar left for India last week he passed on the instructions to start process of shortlisting candidates for the position of chief selector and three or four members of the committee.”
Apart from visiting a casino, Khan had also broken the team curfew a night before Pakistan’s loss against West Indies.
Incidentally, after Khan returned to Pakistan, the team have won three matches in a row, beating Zimbabwe, UAE and South Africa.
Another source was reluctant to accept the reason given by the PCB behind Moin Khan’s casino visit and his recall back home. He said, “Going to a casino to just have food was the explanation given by Moin and one accepted by the board. But then is it such a big crime that the board called home back home and since has also not bothered to send him back to join the team. There is more to this issue than that meets the eye.”
