The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board Shaharyar Khan has said that the decision to call back Moin Khan from the World Cup and later sack him as chief selector was taken to keep his prestige and reputation intact after the Casino incident.
Young Pakistan left-arm spinner Raza Hasan is facing a possible two-year ban from all forms of cricket after testing positive for cocaine in a dope test carried out at the WADA accredited laboratory in India.
Hurt by his recent ouster from the chief selector's post, former Pakistan captain Moin Khan said that the the PCB could have handled the Casino incident during the cricket World Cup in a much better manner.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq and head coach Waqar Younis wanted the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to sideline Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal from the national team for atleast a year to force them to improve their attitudes.
Pakistan's new chief selector Haroon Rasheed hinted that the trio of Umar Akmal, Nasir Jamshed and Ahmed Shehzad was not dropped only because of inconsistent performance but also for disciplinary issues.
