Wasim Khan signs off as PCB CEO four months ahead of contract expiration

Wasim Khan, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), resigned four months before the deal expired. Wasim began his journey as a board’s executive on a 3 years contract in 2019, and in the wake of his abrupt resignation, the PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja alongside the board of directors sat for a meeting on Wednesday afternoon.

The PCB confirmed the news in a brief statement on Wednesday (September 29) morning. The PCB said that Wasim Khan has resigned from the designation of CEO. However, the BoG (Board of Governors) will meet today to consider the matter.

Before the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2021, one negative incident after another is happening in Pakistan cricket. Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis resigned as coaches earlier this month. After that, the New Zealand and England series at home also got postponed.

According to various media reports in Pakistan, the power of the CEO has been declining since Ramiz Raja became the chairman of the board. That is why Wasim Khan himself has resigned.

Wasim Khan’s current tenure with the board was due to end in February 2022. But in the last few months, he has seen uncertainty about his future. So Wasim didn’t think it was right to be in charge anymore.
