PCB board members reject MD Wasim Khan’s appointment, present resolution against it

Five out of seven members of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) board of governors (BoG) on Wednesday presented a resolution, declaring the appointment of Wasim Khan as managing director as “null and void”.
“Appointment of managing director [Wasim Khan] along with the creation of the unconstitutional post of MD PCB is hereby declared null and void,” read a copy of a resolution obtained by DawnNewsTV, which they wanted to be adopted during today’s board meeting.
Additionally, according to the resolution, any move to abolish departments or regions in the process of restructuring domestic cricket was also rejected and termed as “unacceptable”.

As per the resolution, the members of the BoG called for a domestic cricket restructuring committee (DCRC) within the next ten days. They added that it should consist of four members representing all four regions “with a departmental representation” and called for it to be presented during the next meeting of the BoG scheduled to be held on April 30.

Separately on Wednesday, the cricket board issued a press release announcing that the board of governors meeting, held in Quetta for the first time, had been adjourned due to an incomplete quorum.
According to the press release, the meeting began but was “adjourned for a brief period pursuant to five members attempting to table a resolution, which was not part of the agenda”, adding that : “The PCB Chairperson had proposed any business other than the agenda could be considered under Any Other Items at the end of the meeting.”

PCB Chairperson Ehsan Mani said that he was “hugely disappointed” by the events adding that he was looking forward to an “interactive, productive and constructive discussion, which was aimed at taking Pakistan cricket forward”.
Later, while speaking to the media in Quetta, Mani said that the recommendations of the BoG members were “completely unreasonable”.
He said that their recommendations had previously been approved but today they had changed their position.
“We will look at what they want,” the PCB chief said, adding: “There are no two ways about this, we need to fix Pakistani cricket.”
