A source close to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has claimed that things may very well be far from smooth in the PCB headquarters as tensions rise between chairman Ehsan Mani and Cheif Executive Wasim Khan.
“Ehsan Mani was brought into the PCB by Imran Khan, therefore no one can say anything and he remains the king of the board. He has started intervening in all the matters conducted by Wasim Khan which has left the Chief Executive worried. He has approached Wasim Akram, who is very close to Imran Khan. This way both Wasim’s are now handling all matters,” the source said.
It is to be known that it was Ehsan Mani himself who recruited Wasim Khan. Why would he not let him do his work? One should wonder.
“Power my friend, power. This is something that pits a son against his father and brother against brother. You should see that most of the recent appointments were made with the approval of Wasim Akram. He is not interested in an official position but still has significant influence,” the source further said.
The source also went on to make a massive claim that Moin Khan will soon be brought in due to the influence of Wasim Akram.
“He [Moin Khan] will soon be brought in,” the source said while responding to my question.
The truth is that everyone is trying to keep their people fit. They tried to sell the domestic circuit in a new package but did they get any sponsors? Now they have named the academy as the High Performance Center. Will Nadeem Khan start producing Bradman-like players? They just wanted to remove the old faces that they have. The change is similar to the change that engulfed the country after the last elections. There are many conflicts of interests happening currently such as with the Multan Sultans owner and his closeness with Wasim Khan,” the source concluded.
