Basit Ali relieved from women’s teams’ coaching duties after alleged brawl

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Sheharyar Khan on Monday decided to relieve Basit Ali of his position as coach of the Women’s Team and Junior Teams.

The PCB chief’s decision followed separate meetings with Basit Ali and former cricketer Mahmood Hamid in Karachi following reports of an alleged brawl between the two.

Hamid on Friday alleged that Basit Ali verbally abused him and then slapped him for criticising him on a local TV channel while he was watching a match in the National Stadium.

Although Basit reportedly admitted that he intended to physically harm Hamid, the two have since reconciled.

The PCB chairman, however, clarified that no ban is being imposed on Basit and he is free to pursue future coaching assignments with the PCB or other teams.
