Due to this attitude, the Rashid Latif has also blocked Wasim Khan, he told in a YouTube video a few days ago.

Alongside cricket analyst Dr. Nauman Niaz, Rashid Latif told that Faheem Ashraf had texted the CEO seeking permission to play franchise-based leagues and he has since been blocked. Latif also said that he has the proof for what he’s saying, telling that Shadab Khan and Asif Ali have also been treated the same way.

The two also claimed that there’s a lot going on in the PCB, especially in terms of the power game. One of the ongoing issues is corruption at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Lahore and two senior officials including Ali Zia and Mudassar Nazar have either stepped down or decided not to seek an extension.

PCB has also formed a three-member committee to investigate alleged corrupt practices in the NCA. Wasim Khan has withdrawn from the Cricket Committee while Haroon Rashid will also part ways with the PCB early next year.

The duo said that some prominent cricketers are controlling the PCB from behind the scenes. Talking about Fawad Alam’s inclusion, Nauman Niaz claimed that it’s all been done on directions from the top.

Expressing his anger, Dr. Nauman said that he also got a message from Wasim Khan for mimicking his English speaking style.

  • By the way what are the credentials of mr wasim khan? His post was advertised and no one was called for the interview and he was sslected. Their is no merit . Similar is the case with Misbah becoming the coach ! One wonders what different is this setup to the one before

    • Wasim is an MBA from England and he’s qualified for managing job.
      England tried to hire him twice but he rejected it.
      He was with one of the counties teams.
      He was a better batsman than Rashid latif.

  • Naye Pakistan k ma’am per hard shobay ko tabaah Kiya ja raha hai …..ye government sirf army ki chamcha giri kr skti h…..
    Kya waqt a gya h……IK govt ko Musharraf ki tarjjumani krna parh rahi h

  • People like Rashid latif who was an average wicket keeper and a terrible batsman talks shit about wasim khan.
    If you don’t know wasim khan then let me tell you who he is.

    Wasim khan is seen as one of the most important men in English cricket (voted 11th out of 50 in a recent magazine – 2012), leading the Cricket Foundation’s £50 million Chance to Shine campaign as the CEO. The campaign aims to regenerate competitive cricket in state schools. His autobiography Brim Full of Passion was voted Wisden Book of the Year 2007.[2] In it he says “it’s not often in life that you get to do something that stirs your very soul”. Since launching in 2005, Chance to Shine has reached over 1.8 million children across 6,500 schools and has raised close to £40 million. He also sits on the Equality & Human Rights Commission Sports Group, The Prince’s Trust Cricket Group and has recently been appointed onto the England Cricket Board’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit and also has various mentoring roles with kids from inner city areas. Khan ran two London marathons for Chance to Shine, in 2007 & 2010 and raised £10,000. He is also an accomplished and very impressive speaker. In January 2015, he gained an MBA from the University of Warwick. In October 2014 he was made Chief Executive of Leicestershire Cricket Club.

  • Who the hell does wasim khan think he is blocking other cricket players as if he is some goddamn vip arrogant piece of shit.

  • Bhai, If you want NOC for playing foreign leagues, send a formal request or email to relevent desk. Or visit office in office hours after informing before hand. And once your request has been rejected. Don’t keep bugging on personal WhatsApp number. Our people are innocent and can be made to believe against anyone very easily. Wasim Khan is very talented guy. Give him time to deliver. Rashid and Doc are both lowlife liars, who work on anti Pak agendas and will keep doing it until PCB through them some “hadi” to eat n lick.
