Napier: The Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) says chief selector Moin Khan will not return to the World Cup, and has apologized for going to a casino in New Zealand.

Casinos and gambling are banned in Pakistan, and criticism of Khan for going to one on Feb. 19 in Christchurch went all the way to parliament. Khan was ordered to come home.

While addressing the media PCB chairman Shahryar Khan khan said that the investigation did not found anything contrary to Moin's statement that he had visited the casino in Christchurch to have dinner with friends.

Speaking to reporters in Lahore, Shahryar said the PCB investigation found nothing contrary to Moin's statement that he had visited the casino in Christchurch, New Zealand, to have dinner with friends.

"He realises that it was inappropriate to have visited a casino ahead of Pakistan's match against the West Indies. But he reiterated that he only had dinner over there and nothing else. He also admitted that, perhaps, a casino was not the right place to have dinner and has apologised. This chapter is now closed," Shahryar said.

Moin is also expected to keep his position as the chief selector despite calls for his removal after Pakistan's poor show at the World Cup so far. Casinos and gambling are banned in Pakistan, and criticism of Khan for going to one on Feb. 19 in Christchurch went all the way to parliament. Khan was ordered to come home.
