LAHORE – Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman  Shaharyar Mohammad Khan, has relieved Basit Ali from his duties in regard to the Women Team’s head coach and Chairman national Junior selection committee.

The decision was taken in the after math of Basit’s slapping of a former international cricketer  Mehmood Hamid on the side lines of a match of national one-day cricket tournament at Karachi.

“The Chairman’s decision came after he had separate meetings with Basit Ali and Mahmood Hamid in Karachi following an alleged brawl between the two, a few days ago. Although the two had reconciled, Basit Ali admitted to an intent to physically harm Mahmood Hamid,” said spokesman of PCB here on Monday.
