LAHORE: The Board of Governors of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday met via video conference in which they unanimously accepted the resignation of Wasim Khan as chief executive officer (CEO).
Khan who had tendered his resignation earlier in the day, had joined the PCB on a three-year contract on 1 February 2019.
Following the meeting, PCB Chairman Mr Ramiz Raja said: “During his time with the PCB, Wasim Khan provided excellent leadership, particularly following the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic when very little information was available and precise decision-making was required to ensure cricket remained unaffected and continued to be played at the domestic and international levels.”
“The PCB owes Wasim Khan a debt of gratitude for his good leadership and we wish him well in his future plans and career endeavours,” Raja said according to the press released issued by the PCB.
Wasim Khan said it has been an honor and a privilege to serve the Pakistan Cricket Board and hugely satisfying to see the resumption of Test cricket with Sri Lanka playing Tests in Rawalpindi and Karachi, and the homecoming of the HBL Pakistan Super League during the last two years.
“With a five-year strategy in place, new domestic structure in its third season and the investment in women’s cricket in an upward direction, I feel it is the right time to move on and reunite with my young family. They have sacrificed a lot so that I could fulfill my dreams of contributing to Pakistan cricket, which will always remain very close to my heart,” Khan added.
“I am grateful to have worked with all our fantastic commercial partners and the passionate people at the PCB. Lastly, I want to wish PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja the very best during his tenure, I am sure there will be exciting times ahead for Pakistan Cricket under his leadership.”
