The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s Chief Operating Officer (CEO) Wasim Khan has left the Cricket Committee after making most of the important decisions.
The PCB is now facing issues in finding a former star cricketer to be appointed for the honorary position. This is why legendary former fast-bowler Wasim Akram, who is already part of the Cricket Committee (CC), is being considered for the position but he is yet to comment in this regard.
Sources have claimed that the new head will assume an honorary position. The major decisions such as not extending the contracts of former head coach Mickey Arthur and his staff, removing former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed from the leadership role and appointing a new coach for the women’s team have already been taken by the PCB’s CEO.
The decision to appoint Akram as the head of the Cricket Committee could have been taken when former cricketer Mohsin Khan resigned from the position. However, the delay allowed the CEO to take all major decisions.
Sources also claimed that the former head of the Cricket Committee Mohsin Khan was promised an important position in the team setup. However, after the appointment of former captain Misbahul Haq as the new head coach-cum-chief selector of the national side, Khan was left empty handed.—APP
