Colonel retired Mohammad Azam Khan has stepped down from his post
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has issued an advertisement for the vacant position of Director Security and Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) on Wednesday.
Colonel retired Mohammad Azam Khan had stepped down from his post, just about a month before the start of Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The board has hired the services of retired Lieutenant Colonel Asif Mahmood to ensure matters run smoothly until the appointment of the permanent security and ACU director.
Azam — who tendered his resignation earlier this month — held the PCB position during the 2017 PSL spot-fixing scandal, during which five cricketers — Khalid Latif, Sharjeel Khan, Mohammad Irfan, Nasir Jamshed and Shahzaib Hasan — were penalised.
“The new director security will be appointed through a proper recruitment process, details of which will be announced in due course,” a PCB official said.
