Heads roll as PCB starts 'post mortem' of Sri Lanka tour

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, Aug.22 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sacked assistant coach Aaqib Javed from his post due to the team's dismal show in the Sri Lanka series.

Javed has been replaced by Mohtashim Rasheed.

Rasheed is the younger brother former Test batsman, Haroon Rasheed, and is currently serving as Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) Director of Game Development, the Daily Times reports.

When enquired about Javed's sacking, PCB chief Ijaz Butt said he has 'better plans' for the former fast bowler.

The PCB has also decided to replace assistant manager Mohammad Ahmed with former Test cricketer Shafqat Rana. However, it has refused to axe team manager Yawar Saeed , who has come under heavy criticism during the disastrous Sri Lanka tour.

"We cannot fire our people just because the media wants us to. We are considering Shafqat as the new manager of the team. That is why he has been given the responsibility of associate manager," Butt said. (ANI)
