Recently, a good number of Pakistan Cricket fans smashed eggs on their heads as a means of displaying anger on Thursday after the country’s chief selector returned home from the disgrace in World Cup as he was reported to visit a casino.
The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Shaharyar Khan ordered Moin Khan to come back after the former wicket keeper was criticized by the former players and also the parliamentarians as he was found to be dining out at a casino in the very last week in Christchurch. Going to casino is banned in Pakistan and also is quite much unacceptable to Pakistani culture.
The frustrated fans of Pakistan at the airport chanted “Enemy of Cricket, Moin Khan” and also “Get out Moin Khan” as the chief selector went out of the airport in the southern port city of Karachi without talking to the media or facing the angry fans.
Unable to see Moin Khan, the fans vented their anger by smashing eggs on their own heads.
Moin Khan told that he is sorry with the entire nation for hurting them. He added that it was quite unintentional to go to a casino for dinner and in hindsight, he chose a wrong place.
Moin Khan was a member of the World Cup winning squad of Pakistan in 1992. He was criticized by former cricketers when PCB decided to send him with the team to Australia and New Zealand as the chief selector.
Pakistan got off to a rather disappointing start in the World Cup. In their opening game, they were defeated by India by a margin of 76 runs, which marked their sixth consecutive World Cup defeat against arch rivals, India. Also, in the second game, they were defeated by West Indies by a margin of 150 runs.
Just prior to the loss against West Indies, Moin went to a casino for dinner with his wife and his friends. Shaharyar spoke to Moin for a number of times and also talked to the team management before deciding to call him home.
Moin Khan finally said that he doesn’t want to jump to any conclusions. He believes that things will be sorted after he meets with the chairman in a couple of days’ time.
