The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has recalled chief selector Mohammad Moin Khan from the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand after he visited a casino before the match against West Indies.

PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan said Moin Khan behaved inappropriately at a time when the team was not doing well. Speaking to reporters in Lahore the PCB chairman said that Moin Khan is being recalled so that he could explain the situation himself. Moin Khan had spoken to the PCB chairman on an earlier occasion and stated that the accusations against him were false adding that he had gone to the location to have dinner.

Following the decision to recall Moin Khan, the PCB announced that Manager Naved Cheema will act as the chair of the tour selection committee with captain Misbah-ul-Haq and head coach Waqar Younis.

Pakistan has had other problems at the world cup. Eight players were fined for a late night out while, according to media reports, fielding coach Grant Luden has complained about the behavior of some of the senior squad members.

The PCB and the squad have come under attack after losing the first two matches to fierce rivals India and West Indies and also losing a one-day series in New Zealand.
