    This isn't good for Pak cricket. I think WK was doing a fine job and should have been continued with. Would be curious to hear RR's explanation for this, but I can't really think of a suitable candidate as his replacement.

    Not surprised. No way was WK going to continue if his powers were curtailed and if he was unwanted. He was definitely told he would not be getting an extension

    This is the issue with Pakistan Cricket. Itís a forever revolving door and oldies will be back soon. I will be very very surprised if someone young with a good educational background is selected.

    People will come here rejoicing but in reality they will realize later on how beneficial WK was and would be in the future.

    Tbh WK when he reflects back on his tenure will see that the decision to appoint Misbah as head coach, batting coach, CS and Waqar as bowling coach badly misfired.

    That PCB PTV so called $200 million deal failed.

    By NZ, England not coming to Pakistan, the biggest reason he was hired for failed.

    Wasim Khan was not responsible for those actions. IK appointed both Misbah and Waqar from behind the scene.
    He failed the 2nd one.
    You cannot blame Wasim Khan for NZ, England didn't come to Pakistan.
    Also, he was not fully responsible for PSL Bubble issue as well.

    Is he responsible for anything at all? Or was he just a spectator?


    Misbah, Wahab, Junaid, Root, Williamson fan.

    The formula is simple: anything good that happened during his tenure was because of him and anything bad that happened had nothing to do with him.

    Wasim Khan PR is amazing.

    Misbah & Waqar were political appointments backed by King IK
    NZ & Eng he made all the deals, they refused all the last moment, Not his fault, he is mere human being, not some superman who has the completely authority & control over the other nations.

    Fantastic news.

    What a great day for Pakistan cricket and PCB. Heartiest congratulations to everyone.

    Please note that he did not resign - he was sacked by Ramiz. This resignation cover up is just a favor by PCB to allow him to exit gracefully and pretend that it was on his own terms.

    He is clueless and incompetent. At best, I would give his tenure 2/10.

    Letís look at the blunders of Wasim Khan:

    1) He allowed Misbah to decide Mickeyís future when there was a clear conflict of interest. Mickey had to go, but a potential replacement should have never been allowed to be part of the panel that decided his future.

    It was pure in incompetence and weak leadership.

    2) he combined the coach and selector roles and called it a ďnecessary innovationĒ for Pakistan cricket. However, when Misbah struggled to balance both roles, Wasim disbanded this ďnecessary innovationĒ.

    As a result, we never found out if the dual role was the problem or if Misbah was the problem. Again, a sign of his weak leadership and lack of vision and conviction.

    3) Botched PSL 2021. Pakistan was going through an almost COVID free period in Feb/March 2021. Since the pandemic started, this period was actually the most successful period for Pakistan in terms of COVID.

    However, PCB was extremely relaxed and did not even take the basic precautions to prevent an outbreak. Had PCB done the basics, they would have completed PSL 2021 with no issues.

    People give examples of IPL getting suspended in April but the situation was completely different. India was going through a severe COVID crisis at the time; Pakistan wasnít in Feb-March 2021.

    4) That 200 million deal with PTV proved to be a scam. It was a lie. Why hasnít Wasim Khan being held accountable for it and why isnít he being investigated for embezzlement? Where did this figure come up from and where did it go?

    5) Failed to deliver DRS for the New Zealand ODI series, which meant that the series was not part of the ODI Championship and hence was rendered meaningless.

    If New Zealand didnít humiliate Pakistan by rightfully canceling the tour and had Pakistan fluked a whitewash, would Wasim Khan have taken responsibility for costing Pakistan points in the ODI Championship? As the CEO, the buck stops with him. It was his job to get these arrangements done.

    People say he revamped the domestic cricket and convinced big teams to tour Pakistan. Firstly, he did not revamp domestic cricket - he simply implement the blueprint provided by Imran Khan.

    In other words, he was spoon-fed and we donít even know if this new look domestic system is even going to work.

    As far as bringing big teams to Pakistan is concerned, we have to understand that he only capitalized on the groundwork and the momentum created by Sethi.

    The likes of New Zealand, England and Australia wouldnít have agreed to tour in the first place if it wasnít for the incremental steps that PCB took from 2015 to 2018.

    Wasim got this job through sycophancy. He was a political appointment handpicked by Imran Khan as a favor.

    He played the ďI left England to help PakistanĒ card but it didnít work, and he started complaining about the hostility that he received from the media and ex-players who could see through the act.

    He expected a red carpet welcome and that didnít happen, and he clearly didnít have the thick skin to cope with criticism.

    He should have never been appointed in the first place, and Ramiz has done well to end his misery. I donít think this resignation cover-up was necessary though. He should have been fired.

    Anyway, good riddance.

    Anyway, good riddance.
    Also, I don't know if he was directly responsible, but the appointment of Mohammad Wasim was totally a failure.

    He should be sacked next, an entirely disgraceful chief selector with no vision, fancy slides, and clearly no planning.

    There are enough resources in both our batting and bowling departments across all formats to ensure that we are in the top 5 rankings.

    Instead, we are sinking in ODIs and T20Is, because of some horrific selections.

    It is quite surprising when the general population is able to pick better squads than a guy who is paid to do so.

    If I were Ramiz Raja, I'd seriously be thinking about getting rid of Mohammad Wasim.

    Poor selections, influenced by the media, right-hand man for nepotism, and favoring his own domestic team.

    Just how on Earth does Haris Rauf get selected in every single test match squad? Clueless, absolutely shambolic.

    People will say that selecting a team is hard; it frankly isn't as hard as we make it. Isolate the top performers in the domestic system and 2-3 players with potential, and you have a core group you should be backing.

    When you as a Chief Selector trust the fantastic batting abilities of Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, and Faheem Ashraf to form your superstar middle order, your head is definitely in the sand.

    But then again, every single selector has preferences that always come in the way of good squad selections. Everyone wants to do people some favors. My advice would be to disband the role of Chief Selector and adopt a similar selection board such as the one India uses; and this board shouldn't include people who are contracted by franchises or domestic teams.

    Question is - do we really need a top heavy management at PCB? On one hand the board cries about lack of funding yet the same board loads up the top with redundant positions like CEO, Chairman, etc and shower them with outlandish salaries, perks. These people sit in plush comfy offices acting like Maharajas continue to milk the stupid board while returning near zero results.

    There is no accountability in this government. It is easily the most corrupt government in Pakistan history and also the least transparent. All talk no show.

    Wasim is an Imran Khan puppet and the PCB scam deal has been brushed under the carpet.

    Big Loss. He was doing wonderful job. For me he did more in 3 years than others did in last 2 decades combined.

    * Revamped Departmental Circus and Implemented Regional Structure.

    * Regional Boards.

    * Top Coaches at Grassroot

    * 2 additional National High-Performance Centers and Top Coaches.

    * Eliminated Fake Clubs.

    * City Cricket Associations.

    * Centrally contracted 185 Domestic Players

    * Under 19, 16 at the regional level

    * International Tours arrangement

    * PSL in Pakistan

    He was breath of fresh air after Gimmikry style governance of Najam Sethi where the focus was on Gimmikry rather than grassroots development.

    The way Moin Khan and Aqib Javed were sitting in first row in Ramiz Raja's first press conference as PCB chairman, I think one of them is going to be the next CEO. If that is the case, then good bye to Pakistan Cricket from most of the fans.

    By the way, what are the better options for this vacant position now?

    This position requires management and communication skills. So from ex-cricketers, I believe that only Wasim Akram is capable of this job. If not Wasim Akram, then PCB should hire some other qualified manager person on this position who is not Pakistan's ex-cricketer.

    Before even RR sat down for the press conference I noticed how visiblely happy these two men were to greet him and hugged him.

    I had been afraid for Wasim Khan from that moment onwards and it was confirmed when RR gave a very unsatisfying response to one of the questions that was very demeaning to Wasim Khan.

    Wasim's fate was sealed when RR was appointed, NZ and England team cancelling tours just made sure that RR can let Wasim go months Sooner.

    I have no doubt Wasim Khan will do well in his next role as cricket administration. As a life long Pak follower, this is a sad day

    I didn't like the way he was humiliated. RR should have publicly backed him and supported him even if he wanted to let him go in private. His powers were not only curtailed but his pay was also cut. This is no way to humiliate him.

    Wow, brilliant. What a master stroke by Ramiz, and Khan if true. A master stroke to destroy Pakistan cricket forever. Maza aa gaya. If that happens, i will probably say good bye to Pakistan cricket for good!

    Not surprised at all.

    Recent days events have shown that Wasim's role was being pushed back and his involvement in decisions was reducing.

    A big loss for the PCB.

    The Board of Governors of the Pakistan Cricket Board today met via videoconference in which they unanimously accepted the resignation of Chief Executive Wasim Khan, who had 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.”

    Wasim Khan: “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.

    “When I arrived in 2019, there was a real need to build relationships and restore and enhance the global image and reputation of the PCB and Pakistan cricket. With decisive and strategic decision-making, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic, we succeeded in earning the goodwill and respect of the global cricketing family, which I am hopeful will lead to increased international cricket being hosted in Pakistan in future.

    “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.

    “I am grateful to have worked with all our fantastic commercial partners and the passionate people at the PCB. I would also like to thank each and every one of my staff for supporting me as well as the Pakistan men and women players, and the Pakistan cricket fans.

    “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.”

    A mixed bag tenure in my opinion with some really good contributions as well as some questionable decisions alongside some potential incompetencies by him or people under him. Yes some of the times in his tenure were difficult to lead through but as an administrator of such a big organization you are supposed to expecting such unprecedented issues.

    Wish him luck for his future endeavours. Working as CEO of PCB has surely elevated his scale in the world of cricket administration as this has been his most prominent role in his career.

    Well, its a respectful way of parting with no dramas. This was always a given that Waseem Khan will leave once Ramiz became the chairman. Not surprised at this and I can surely say this is not the end. Expecting M. Wasim and M. Yousuf to resign very soon as well.

    Big loss for PCB and Pakistan cricket. Wasim was like the face of PCB to intl cricket fraternity.

    History will talk about his tenure as one of the successful one and rejoice his times to revamp the domestic structure , bring in modern day players into coaching setup.

    Except the appointment for Misbah into a dual role, he has done a very good job.

    When Mickey was leaving , many celebrated the move but when they saw Misbah slowly taking them back to his old days started to rejoice the days of Mickey as coach and even now they are dreaming for his comeback.

    May be in the future Wasim Khan might become the Chairman. I was looking forward for his promotion to be the Chairman after Ehsan Mani.

    Now letís see what Ramiz raja can do.

    People are emotional about Wasim Khan without knowing what he has really delivered in his job.

    We know for sure team has gone even further backwards, which is a feat in itself. And his long term fixes are an unknown entity at this point. It is also debatable that no one else can deliver them - given we know itís Imran Khanís danda that is the only constant behind every change or Wasim would not have moved an inch.

    Ths only thing certain about PCB is that thereís never a dull moment with them. Blame IK for the whole fiasco - his ad-hoc changes right before the world cup will have a cascading effect on unsettling everything around the team. Couldnt Rameez have waited a few more days to stamp his authority too?

    I guess it all depends on who comes into the role now or perhaps they merge the Chairman and CE roles and give Ramiz all the powers.

    If it is a new Chairman, I hope it's not someone who undoes all the good work done by Wasim Khan.

    Ramiz will most likely consolidate the CEO and Chairman powers into one role which he will obviously take on and then bring in a cricket director who is knows like Moin or Aaqib. Itís back to the desi politics and lust for power.

    I really do feel for WK, a top notch guy and consummate professional. This is Pakistanís problem as a society, competence and hard work are not rewarded. I hope WK writes a book on his tenure with the PCB, it would be very interesting to hear what goes on behind the scenes.

    Oh no.... I guess another 5 years of wasted opportunities if the 1992 Squad return. Not undermining them as players just dont think they are right to move PCB forward. PCB seems to go round in circles never moving forward.

    Wasim Khan on his Linkedin page:


    Unfortunately my time at the Pakistan Cricket Board has come to an end.

    As a British Pakistani and a former professional cricketer, I committed to moving to Pakistan just under 3 years ago, so that I could contribute to improving the global image of the PCB and the country. My aim was to contribute to the betterment of the game under the spotlight of a cricket crazed nation of 220 million people.

    Bringing International cricket back, mixed in with sleepless nights dealing with crisis management, or averting a potential crisis, and navigating through highly politically charged situations were just part and parcel of the exhilaration that came with the role.

    I made real time judgement calls and got some decisions wrong, but being at peace with myself during intense media scrutiny following decisions, allowed me to deal with what I didn’t get right in an honest way.

    I am grateful that my experiences taught me the art of peripheral vision and helped me to develop political intelligence.

    Pakistan Cricket stirred my soul like nothing else. I feel privileged to have played a small part in its history. In a couple of weeks’ time when I fly out of Lahore, heading back to England, i know that I will feel nothing but gratitude and love for the fans of Pakistan who embraced and supported me throughout my time.

    To a beautiful country full of generous and loving people, thank you for the memories. It has been an honour to have served you.

    It was a mistake on his part to stick around and not resign immediately. IMO he went out in humiliating circumstances, his powers were brutally stripped. He came in as the man in charge and all of a sudden he was now answering and justifying his position, the new chairman undiplomatically let it known in the press conference that he was not welcome and then in the end he was told that his remuneration for whatever was left in his tenure would be slashed. What a way to embarrass, humiliate someone of his profile. Rather than firing him directly, RR created the conditions and atmosphere to just force WK to resign and leave himself.

    Good final statement. He accepted the mistakes he made and did not deny them.

    Pakistan is very political. It is probably the only country where to arrange a match every single political institute is involved.
