Mohsin Khan quits as the head of the cricket committee of Pakistan after taking up the role, last year. According to the sources, Mohsin Khan asked Ehsan Mani, the PCB chairman for his resignation from the post of head of the cricket committee, which the latter accepted.
Ehsan Mani made this committee in October last year to assist him with making decisions on matters related to cricket. The committee, which includes Wasim Akram, Misbah ul Haq, and Urooj Mumtaz will be headed by the Managing Director of PCB, Wasim Khan.
The PCB and the committee are under scrutiny after Pakistan’s disappointing run at the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The management of the PCB and the cricket committee was highly criticized for Pakistan’s poor performance at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. However, the member of the committee defending themselves, revealed that the PCB hasn’t called on them from the past several months.
Mohsin Khan said in a statement, “I am very thankful to Mr. Ehsan Mani for honoring me with the opportunity to chair the PCB Cricket Committee. My services are always available for Pakistan cricket at a suitable position in view of my past record.”
The above statement created speculations that Mohsin Khan might have resigned from the current role to take up the other positions which will be available after the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as the PCB will undergo some major changes following the abysmal performance by the ‘Green Army’ at the quadrennial event. However, it will be interesting to see whether Mohsin Khan applies for a new position or not.
PCB Chairman bid a farewell to Mohsin Khan in a statement. “It is always difficult to let go of someone of Mohsin’s stature and caliber, but we respect his decision. I am thankful to Mohsin for his contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors,” the PCB chairman said upon the departure of Khan.
