KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has stressed that Moin Khan was the only former cricketer to have been approached by the board for the post of chief selector.

A PCB spokesperson, referring to reports that various former cricketers rejected the job, said: “No former cricketer had been approached for the job except Moin Khan, who accepted it after a meeting on Monday with acting chairman Najam Sethi.”

The board also strongly rejected another report suggesting that the new chief selector was once convicted and fined for match-fixing.

“Such irresponsible and false allegations hurt the national interest and cause demoralisation,” he said. “Moin had never been convicted for match-fixing.”

Meanwhile, the chief selector was scheduled to hold the first meeting of selection committee at the National Stadium in Karachi yesterday night.
