The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday announced the resignation of former Test cricketer and Chairman of the PCB Cricket Committee Mohsin Khan following a recent meeting with board chairman Ehsan Mani. Mohsin Khan himself asked the board to let him free from the position.
The chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Cricket Committee, Mohsin Khan, has resigned from his position. According to a statement issued by the PCB, Mohsin expressed his desire to be released from his current position, which was accepted by Chairman Ehsan Mani.
The Pakistan Cricket Board on Thursday said Mohsin had requested board chairman Ehsan Mani to release him from the post and now the committee will be headed by Wasim Khan, who is the Managing Director of the board.
We respect Mohsin Khan decision – Ehsan Mani
If he had stayed in his role then Mohsin Khan would be the one, who will carry out a review of Pakistan’s performances in the last three years, including the World Cup. Now, the burden will be on Wasim Khan.
“It is always difficult to let go of someone of Mohsin’s stature and calibre. But, we respect his decision. I am thankful to Mohsin for his contributions. And also, I wish him well in his future endeavours,” Ehsan Mani said.
Most probably, Mohsin’s stepping down as head of the Cricket Committee is a clear indication that the board plans to give him a major responsibility after the World Cup. Interestingly Mohsin, Wasim, and Misbah-Ul-Haq are all presently appearing as experts on television.
Previously, Mohsin Khan was very disappointed with the way Mickey Arthur carried out things. Perhaps, the board might have a look into all chief roles after the conclusion of the tournament.
While stepping away from the current role, Mohsin Khan made it clear his services are always available for Pakistan cricket at a suitable position in view of his past record.
