    Five out of seven members of the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) board of governors (BoG) on Wednesday presented a resolution declaring the appointment of Wasim Khan as managing director as "null and void" — a development that PCB Chairperson Ehsan Mani deemed "hugely" disappointing.

    "Appointment of managing director [Wasim Khan] along with the creation of the unconstitutional post of MD PCB is hereby declared null and void," read a copy of a resolution obtained by DawnNewsTV, which they wanted to be adopted during today's board meeting.

    Additionally, according to the resolution, any move to abolish departments or regions in the process of restructuring domestic cricket was also rejected and termed as "unacceptable".

    As per the resolution, the members of the BoG called for a domestic cricket restructuring committee (DCRC) within the next ten days. They added that it should consist of four members representing all four regions "with a departmental representation" and called for it to be presented during the next meeting of the BoG scheduled to be held on April 30.

    'Completely unreasonable': Mani
    Separately on Wednesday, the cricket board issued a press release announcing that the board of governors meeting, held in Quetta for the first time, had been adjourned due to an incomplete quorum.

    According to the press release, the meeting began but was "adjourned for a brief period pursuant to five members attempting to table a resolution, which was not part of the agenda", adding that : "The PCB Chairperson had proposed any business other than the agenda could be considered under Any Other Items at the end of the meeting."

    PCB Chairperson Ehsan Mani said that he was "hugely disappointed" by the events adding that he was looking forward to an "interactive, productive and constructive discussion, which was aimed at taking Pakistan cricket forward".

    Later, while speaking to the media in Quetta, Mani said that the recommendations of the BoG members were "completely unreasonable".

    He said that their recommendations had previously been approved but today they had changed their position.

    "We will look at what they want," the PCB chief said, adding: "There are no two ways about this, we need to fix Pakistani cricket."

    Wasim Khan's profile:

    Wasim Khan, an MBA from Warwick Business School, is a former professional cricketer with a wealth of experience in cricket and cricket management, the PCB spokesperson had said on Khan's appointment.

    The 47-year-old cricketer has played county cricket in England from 1995 to 2001, during which he represented Warwickshire, Sussex and Derbyshire. He also has playing experience in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. In a 58-match first-class career, Wasim scored 2,835 runs with five centuries and 17 half-centuries, with a highest score of 181.

    He was awarded MBE in 2013 and two years later, he was appointed as the Chief Executive of the Leicestershire County Cricket Club where he has enjoyed a successful stint. In 2005, he was recruited by Lord Mervyn King, former Governor of the Bank of England, to lead a 50million community development project that operated in 11,000 state schools and engaged 2.5 million children across England and Wales.

    Wasim's autobiography Brim Full of Passion was voted as the Wisden Book of the Year 2006.

    Imran has also apparently taken notice of this. BoG mafia is not letting new system take place. Definitely Imran must do something, changes in constitution is needed.

    not sure what to make of this, as usual the shit pakistani media is reporting the headlines but not much about the reasons.

    I did pick up somewhere that mani has been shooting from the hip, without proper consultation and notice to the board. given his track record so far of the cricket committee and its constituents, my confidence in him has been rocked. on the other hand, I dont know who these board members are, or how they ended up on the board, but certainly we can see the results of the board decisions over the past twenty years which have been somewhere between utterly atrocious and horrifically incompetent.

    on the proposed changes to domestic structure, in thought they were a s a result of a consultation, so whats the point of yet another one? and on Wasim's salary and benefits, it is astronomical from reports.

    Democratic system yaha suit hi nahi karta. Pata nahi kyu karte hai? These regional heads who sit in meetings are elected from regional elections, there are 104 district at most but PCB says there are 97 inter district, on top of them districts we have 16 regions, each inter district head under their region votes for a candidate, this is called regional head election, for example, Sialkot is main region under sialkot we have inter district like say Gujranwala, Jehlum, Gujrat, Sarghoda, Mianwali the heads of them districts vote for a regional head for Sialkot who will sit in BoG. Club president vote for Inter district head so this process is not exactly in PCB hands, from department the BoG representative is chosen from that department we have 24 departments, they rebelled because new structure is not in their favour.

    You can only change this by changing the constitution.

    Not amazed at all at this BS, these thugs are the reason Pakistan is far behind than other cricket playing nations. These jerks will never allow a qualified and competent person to come in power and run PCB's matter with professionalism.

    So whats next, is Khan going to meet with Mani?

    Isnt it time to end this nonsense for good, abolished this job organization called "PCB" and introduce a new & modern cricket board reconstituted?

    The problem seems to be Wasim Khan taking lots of money. Nothing wrong with Wasim Khan's salary, it's worth it. You spend money now then you can take foward a strong domestic structure for as long as Pakistan is in existence. Pakistan has a population of 200 million and cricket is the most popular sport so you are guaranteed World cups and Test championships along with this the PSL brand will become bigger, teams will tour Pakistan and Pakistan can earn through TV rights, sponsorship etc, etc. For 50 lakhs will you die or something? You won't die trust me. Zardari and Nawaz Sharif done 2 billion pounds of corruption and under them maybe people have done 5 billion pound corruption but don't say anything then, when Wasim Khan who is doing his job an earning 50 lakh then you seem to have a problem, why is that?

    first video was very interesting and makes sense - he was suggesting they are all going to lose power after the reforms take place which is why they are panicking. the second video was useless!

    Is this going to interfere in the World Cup? Can they not do this after the tournament?

    Board of Governors is an old-boy golf club, like it is for most of the institutions in Pakistan.

    Why is Mani such a soft, and a weak leader?

    His intentions may be right but he is dealing with a “Danday ki Qome.”

    How hard is it to understand?

    If I become Pakistan's PM, the first thing I do is abolish and demolish PCB altogether - EVERY SINGLE ONE from that army of 900+ hadd harams go home - NO EXCEPTION!

    I will then reestablish PCB from scratch with perhaps no one from the current setup.
