The Pakistan cricket team has got off to a rough start at the World Cup, and their campaign has taken another blow following reports the chief selector visited a casino.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that it is carrying out an investigation into reports from the media that chief selector Moin Khan visited a casino the night before a match. The team went on to suffer a record-breaking defeat as the West Indies beat them by 150 runs, Pakistan’s worst defeat at a World Cup.

A disappointing start for Pakistan

“I have spoken to Moin and we have sought an explanation. It is inappropriate he should be at a casino at a time when our team is not doing well,” the PCB chief, Shaharyar Khan, said.

Despite the reports there has been no suggestion that former Test captain Moin would be sent home. “Right now we have not thought about it nor taken any decision to call him back. We will make a judgment after all the facts are known,” Shaharyar Khan said.

Moin previously held the title of team manager but was removed before the start of the World Cup, and the PCB made the surprise decision to send him to accompany the team in his role as chief selector. Never before has the chief selector traveled with the team on foreign tours.

Calls for change

The pressure has been mounting on the PCB and the team after they suffered defeats in their first two World Cup matches, the first at the hands of bitter rivals India, as well as suffering defeat in a one-day series. The people of Pakistan are increasingly calling for the PCB board and management to be replaced.

Discipline has been an issue of late, with even senior players such as Shahid Afridi and Ahmed Shehzad being fined for violating curfews. However the players themselves say that they are sorry for letting the nation of Pakistan down.

“The players have promised a turnaround in remaining matches and they can still qualify for the knockout stage,” said Shaharyar Khan. “Right now we are fully supporting the team. The media should also support them by not overly criticising them. Any inquiry would be held after the team returns home to find out what went wrong.”
