“Pakistan Cricket Board today confirmed Wasim Khan has tendered his resignation as Chief Executive. As is the process, the BOG (Board of Governors) will meet later today to consider the matter.”

Major Changes have seen after Ramiz Raja was appointed. First, Waqar Younis and Misbah-Ul-Haq had stepped down from their respective role recently and now Wasim Khan has also stepped down from his role. 

Head Coach Misbah had cited the bio-secure bubble behind his decision while the bowling Coach Waqar said after learning about Misbah’s plan, he also decided to quit his role.

The PCB owes Wasim Khan a debt of gratitude for his good leadership and we wish him well in his plans and career endeavors,”
