The former captain is in trouble after visiting a casino while Pakistan lost again.
Chief selector, Moin Khan has been sent home from Pakistan’s World Cup touring party, following the news that Khan visited a casino at around the same time as Pakistan’s emphatic defeat against the West Indies, reports the Guardian.

The Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Shaharyar Khan, suggested that the former test captain’s actions were inappropriate, but now a decision has been made, the team will not be affected by his absence.
“We probed the matter and Moin admitted he went to a casino in Christchurch but said he had gone there with friends to have dinner. We have told him he should return [to Pakistan] until we further probe the matter,” Khan explained.
The controversy is the latest low point for the team who currently sit in last place in Pool B.
In their opening game of the tournament, Misbah-ul-Haq’s side lost by 76 runs to bitter rivals India.
But that defeat seemed narrow to the beating they received at the hands of the West Indies, who trounced Pakistan by 150 runs, nearly twice the margin of their defeat to India.
