Wasim Khan resigned without reason, but the PCB said it would meet later on Wednesday to ‘consider the matter.’
Resignation: On Wednesday, Pakistan’s cricket board announced that its chief executive had resigned two weeks after New Zealand and England canceled tours due to security concerns in the nation.
Wasim Khan resigned four months before his contract was set to expire, and the PCB said it would meet later on Wednesday to “examine the matter.”
Canceled tours: New Zealand is a country in the Pacific Ocean. Cricket’s first trip to Pakistan in 18 years was called off just as the first one-day international was set to begin earlier this month in Rawalpindi.
Their decision was quickly followed by England’s decision to cancel a tour scheduled for next month.
New chairman: Raja, who played more than 250 international matches for Pakistan between 1984 and 1997, took over as chairman after Ehsan Mani stepped down last month.
Khan, British with Pakistani ancestry, has recorded run-ins with former Mani, whom he accused of interfering with his ability to work freely.
Khan, who was hired on a three-year contract in 2019, organized Pakistan’s tours of England and New Zealand last year, despite harsh COVID-19 restrictions.
Wasim khan Remarks
Wasim Khan says, “When I arrived in 2019, there was a great need to create partnerships and rebuild and enhance the PCB’s and Pakistan cricket’s global image and reputation.” We earned the goodwill and respect of the global cricketing family via decisive and strategic decision-making, particularly during the Covid-19 outbreak, which I am confident will lead to increased international cricket being hosted in Pakistan in the future.
Wasim Khan’s efforts to bring cricket back to Pakistan
After a 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan team, he made great efforts to bring international cricket back to life. Pakistan had been isolated for years as a result of the attack.
Although security in the country has improved substantially in recent years, armed groups continue to operate along the Afghan border.
Since the 2009 assaults, Pakistan has only hosted South Africa, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Zimbabwe.
