World Cup 2015: Moin Khan provided security after fans gather outside his house

Karachi: Pakistan's under-fire chief selector, Moin Khan has been provided security by the police after angry cricket fans held demonstrations outside his residence in Defence Housing Authority.

SSP South Tariq Dharejo said that police personnel had been deployed at Moin's residence for security reasons.

"We have deployed the security after he complained that some people were protesting outside his house since he reached there from the airport," Dharejo said on Friday.

Moin returned home to an uneasy situation from the World Cup after being recalled by the Pakistan Cricket Board for visiting a Casino in Christchurch, the night before the World Cup match against the West Indies that Pakistan lost by 150 runs.

Moin avoided a group of angry youth who had gathered outside the Karachi international airport to embarrass him with slogans and eggs.

After the former captain slipped away quietly into a waiting car without any baggage the angry youngsters vented their frustration by smashing the eggs on their heads.

The PCB has confirmed that Moin will meet with the Chairman, Shaharyar Khan this evening in Lahore to clarify his position.

Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan has made it clear that a full-scale inquiry is being conducted into chief selector Moin Khan's visit to a Casino in Christchurch before a World Cup match for which he was sent back home.

"Moin has said that he went there to have dinner but that is his statement. According to our information there is more to this incident and we are investigating that in detail," Khan said.

Shaharyar said the Senate Standing Committee on Inter-provincial Coordination and government officials had taken notice of the incident, which left the PCB with no option but to call back Moin from Australia and New Zealand.

"The incident took place in Christchurch while the team is now in Brisbane which is why it is taking some time to complete our inquiry," Khan said.

"It will take another two or three days to complete the inquiry and findings will be made public," he added.
