PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan Steps down As Head Of Cricket Committee

LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ehsan Mani on Sunday announced that the board’s chief executive, Wasim Khan, had stepped down from his position as head of the Cricket Committee.

According to the PCB, Mani and Khan had mutually decided it would be best for Khan to step down as the head of the committee and while he will remain a part of the committee, an independent chairman for the committee will be appointed.

“I want this to be a completely independent committee comprised of former cricketers, including international cricketers, who can dispense clear advice, do a critical analysis and who have access to all levels of cricket, whether domestic or international. Mani said.

“They can speak to the captain, the coach, challenge our senior officials — even Wasim, discuss the wickets, the pitches, the grounds,” said the PCB chairman, as he explained the development.

“Wasim, too, is accountable. So it was not appropriate for him to run the committee.”

Meanwhile, Mudassar Nazar who is the director of academies, confirmed that he will not be seeking an extension to his contract when it expires on May 31 next year.

Mani lauded Nazar’s services to the board during his time with PCB.
