Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday launched an investigation into chief selector Moin Khan's alleged visit to a casino ahead of the team's World Cup clash against the West Indies.

PCB chairman Shehryar Khan promised action if required but also assured that Moin Khan would get a fair probe.

Pakistan suffered a comprehensive 150-run defeat, adding to the anger of the fans who were livid after the team's defeat against arch-rivals India. Moin's recent incident has only added fuel to the fire.

"We have launched an investigation over the reports that Moin Khan visited a casino, action will be taken if the reports prove true," Khan told reporters.

"As per initial reports, Moin Khan went there to have a meal two days before the match against the West Indies and a Pakistani couple photographed him and made a video," he said.

"But we will not make anybody a scapegoat and will investigate this incident before taking any action."

Pakistan are languishing at the bottom of Pool B after consecutive defeats, prompting cricket fans in the country to hold a mock funeral for the national team.

Pakistan next play Zimbabwe in Brisbane on Sunday.
