Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Cricket Committee Chairman Mohsin Khan has decided to resign from his post in the wake of the poor performance in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019. The Cricket Committee is likely to review Pakistan’s performances in the last three years, including the World Cup.
Mohsin steps down from Cricket Committee
Pakistan have had a dismal time in the World Cup. They have lost three of the five games so far including against arch-rivals India. The Men in Greens are currently in the ninth spot before Afghanistan with only three points. They will have to win all their remaining games to give themselves a chance of making it to the semifinals. Moreover, there has been a rift between the senior players, and the likes of Shoaib Malik and Wahab Riaz received heavy criticism for partying at a cafe till 2 AM in the morning.

Amidst all the conundrum, Mohsin Khan requested PCB to accept his resignation and requested board chairman Ehsan Mani to release him from the post. Managing Director of the board, Wasim Khan will now head the Cricket Committee which also has Misbah-ul-Haq as one of the members. Mani thanked Mohsin for his service and wished him for the future.
“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 wish him well in his future endeavours,” Mani said.
The Cricket Committee after remaining silent for the most part since its commencement will review the performance and submit their report and recommendation to PCB and BOG for approval soon after the World Cup. There are chances that this Pakistan team will undergo a lot of changes in leadership, support staffs and selectors in a bid to improve their performance in the coming month.
