Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shaharyar Khan has asked chief selector Moin Khan to explain his position for visiting a Casino in Christchurch just before match against West Indies.
According to reports, Moin Khan was spotted at a Casino in Christchurch before Pakistan went into the match against West Indies on Saturday, which they lost by a big margin of 150 runs.
Pakistan played below par against the not-so-fancied West Indies, who eventually prevailed in all departments of the game against match favorites.
A video of Moin Khan, purportedly at a Casino in Christchurch, also went viral on social media.
Shaharyar Khan has asked the former Pakistan captain to explain why he visited the Casino when Pakistan was to play against West Indies.
Apart from below par performance in the World Cup, Pakistan cricket team has also been engulfed in several controversies.
Eight Pakistan players were charged by the team management for violating code of conduct after returning almost an hour late from a bar at night. Ahmed Shahzad, the underperforming opener, was also reported to have skirmish with a Pakistan cricket fan, who questioned the players why were they at a bar when an important match against India was just around the corner.
Moreover, three cricketers Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shahzad allegedly misbehaved with Grant Luden, Pakistan fielding coach, who resigned after the incident. But Luden was reportedly later convinced to continue with his job by the board.
Shahid Afridi dropped two dollies against West Indies and also fielded poor while Umar Akmal also dropped an easy catch behind the wickets.
