Wasim Khan writes a passionate letter to Pakistan’s “beautiful people”

Karachi: After resigning as the Pakistan Cricket Board‘s (PCB) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) a few days ago, Wasim Khan sent an emotional statement.

Wasim said it was an honor to serve a wonderful country full of giving and caring people in a LinkedIn post.

“As a British Pakistani and former professional cricketer, I committed to relocating to Pakistan little under three years ago in order to help improve the PCB’s and the country’s global image. My goal was to help improve the game in front of a cricket-crazed nation of 220 million people.”

“Bringing international cricket back, along with sleepless nights dealing with crisis management, or averting a possible crisis, and navigating through extremely politically sensitive circumstances were all part of the thrill of the job,” he said.

Despite the tremendous media scrutiny, Wasim confessed that he committed some blunders throughout his term. During his tenure at PCB, he developed “political intelligence,” which he values.

“I made real-time judgement calls and got some decisions wrong, but being at peace with myself during intense media scrutiny following decisions, allowed me to deal with what I didn’t get right in an honest way,” he said. “I am grateful that my experiences taught me the art of peripheral vision and helped me to develop political intelligence.”

“Pakistan Cricket stirred my soul like nothing else. I feel privileged to have played a small part in its history. In a couple of weeks’ time when I fly out of Lahore, heading back to England, I know that I will feel nothing but gratitude and love for the fans of Pakistan who embraced and supported me throughout my time.”

“To a beautiful country full of generous and loving people, thank you for the memories. It has been an honor to have served you,” he concluded
