If the reports are to be believed then Wasim Khan, who is Managing Director of the board, will now take the charge of committee head.
PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani told the media that it is always difficult to let go of someone of Mohsin’s stature and caliber, but we respect his decision. The board is thankful to him for his contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors.
