LAHORE: PCB Chairman, Shaharyar Khan has relieved Basit Ali from the posts of Women’s head coach and chief selector junior teams, PCB announced through a press release.

PCB boss took the decision after having separate meetings with both Mahmood Hamid and Rashid Latif.

Mahmood Hamid, a former cricketer, accused Basit earlier this week for slapping him for criticising him in a television show.

However, the matter settled down between the two and Basit Ali apologized to him as well. But, Khan has relieved him and withdrawn him from currently sensitive assignments with the woman’s and junior teams.

The Chairman PCB has made it clear that the board has not imposed any sort of ban on him and he can take up any coaching assignments with the PCB or with other teams.
