New Delhi:  Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has ordered a probe against Chief Selector  Moin Khan after his casino visit video surfaced online.

PCB has asked for an explanation from Moin Khan who is believed to have visited a casino along with his wife and a member of the tour selection committee two days before Pakistan's clash against West Indies at Christchurch.

West Indies defeated Pakistan in a lopsided game with a huge margin of 150-runs win in their Cricket World Cup Pool B match on February 21st

The cricket board has decided to act tough against Moin asking the chief selector to return back to Pakistan from Australia within next couple of days. He is likely to return to Pakistan before the team plays its next game against Zimbabwe on March 01st.

A senior official from PCB has stated that Moin may face strict disciplinary action in case he is found guilty of breaking the team's code of conduct.

Meanwhile President of the PCB Shaharyar Khan while interacting with the media persons said that "We have launched an investigation over the reports that Moin Khan visited a casino, and action will be taken if the reports are proven true."

Pakistan currently is languishing at the bottom of Pool B after consecutive defeats, from Team India and West Indies.
