Moin Khan presented his side of the story after the PCB ordered him to return home on Tuesday. The chief selector visited a casino two days before Pakistan’s latest defeat at the ongoing World Cup.
“I had gone to a casino in Christchurch with friends and family to have dinner. On hindsight, the choice of venue for dinner was indeed inappropriate, which has, and rightly so, offended Pakistan public as well as cricket fans.
“I have already explained my position to the PCB Chairman and have apologised to him. He has asked me to return home to further clarify my position in person, which I have readily accepted.
“Through this statement, I also apologise to the Pakistan public for my insensitivity in the choice of venue for dinner.”
