The CEO of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Wasim Khan, maybe the next one to quit his role in the board following PCB’s new chairman, Ramiz Raja’s order. Ramiz, who became the 36th chairman of the board yesterday, is keen to embrace ‘whole’ new management in the system.
At first, taking over Ehsan Mani’s regime as a chairman, Ramiz reportedly had his say while finalizing the Pakistan T20 World Cup squad. However, the chief selector denied the news but it was absolute seeing additions of Azam Khan, Khushdil Shah, and Asif Ali to the crew.
Soon after the squad was unveiled, Pakistan’s bowling coach and head coach, Waqar Younis and Misbah ul Haq announced their retirement from the respective roles presenting the ‘most feeble-minded’ reasons as an excuse.
Consequently, it cleared that the duo was asked to leave PCB (after the World Cup), so they took a ‘clever step’ letting go of selection criticism following their ‘no opinion’ while selecting the players for the big event.
Notably, Raja held his first-ever press conference as a chairman and announced different developments to adhere to Pakistan Cricket. He also announced that there will be no changes in the mega-event crew.
Moreover, the reports are saying that CEO’s performances since he took over the designation, are under scrutiny. Ramiz has asked for two months to read the deliverances and will decide Wasim’s fate after two months.

It must be noted that Wasim’e tenure as a CEO ends in 2022 and no further extension is expected as the Ramiz-Wasim duo met on Tuesday for relevant discussion.
