A protest was held outside the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) headquarters in Lahore, calling for removal of Managing Director Wasim Khan.

According to details, protestors from the Cricketers Welfare Association believe that the Khan’s massive salary makes no sense, which is why he should be removed from his post.

They also appealed to Prime Minister Imran Khan to take notice of this issue and remove all such people with excessive salaries.  

The protestors were also against the recently proposed changes to country’s domestic structure and insisted that the regions should be banned.  

It must be noted that the majority of PCB Board of Governors (BoG) also cited similar concerns, during the 53rd meeting of BoG in Quetta, which is why a resolution was passed to address their grievances.

The members who showed their dissent included Shahraiz Rokri(Lahore), Noman Butt(Sialkot), Shah Dost (Quetta), Kabir Khan (FATA) and Ayaz Butt (KRL).

The resolution declared the appointment of MD PCB Wasim Khan as ‘null and void’.

“The creation of unconstitutional post of MD PCB is hereby declared null and void,” the resolution stated. 

Regarding the proposed domestic structure, the resolution read: “Any move to abolish departments and regions in the restructuring of domestic cricket structure is hereby rejected and unacceptable.”

It also stated that a four-member committee should be formed to evaluate and give recommendations, before any changes are made to the current domestic structure.
