PCB ‘not comfortable’

During the meeting, Prime Minister Khan asked why the side lost the opening game of the three-match Test series against England in Manchester when it was on the cusp of victory.

The PCB Cricket Committee member had told the PCB patron that they were not confident with the 35-year-old leading the side and stressed the need to replace the Lahore-born player as team captain.
