Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shahryar Khan has removed Basit Ali as head coach of women’s cricket team and junior team selector.
The decision came after he held separate meetings with Basit Ali and Mahmood Hamid in Karachi, following a dispute between the two during a domestic tournament last week in which Basit Ali had slapped Mahmood Hamid.
Although the two had reconciled, Basit Ali admitted that intended to physically harm Mahmood Hamid
However, the Chairman said that there would be no general ban on Basit Ali’s future coaching assignments with PCB or other teams.
Following his scuffle with Hamid, Basit Ali had announced to resign from his posts of junior team chief selector and women’s team head coach. However shortly after, the former Test batsman changed his mind and said he had agreed to continue working with PCB.
