PCB CEO Wasim Khan resigns from post

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday confirmed that chief executive Wasim Khan had handed in his resignation.

In a statement, the cricket board said that the Board of Governors will meet later today to consider the matter.

According to ESPNcricinfo, Khan had begun his stint as the board’s executive on a three-year contract in 2019.

An MBA from Warwick Business School, he is also a former professional cricketer. He played county cricket in England from 1995 to 2001, during which he represented Warwickshire, Sussex and Derbyshire.

He also played in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In a 58-match first-class career, Wasim scored 2,835 runs with five centuries and 17 half-centuries, with a highest score of 181.

Khan’s resignation comes as newly appointed PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja has called for a complete overhaul of the system.

It also comes after head coach Misbahul Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis resigned from their posts with the 2021 T20 World Cup just around the corner.

Misbah had cited bio-secure bubbles as the reason behind his decision to quit while Waqar had said it was a “straightforward decision” for him after learning of Misbah’s plans.

The pair still had a year each left in their contracts after being appointed in September 2019.
