LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief executive Wasim Khan on Monday expressed regrets about his recent comments regarding some members of the media.

In a statement, the PCB official said, “On Saturday [June 5] during an interview, I made some comments about some members of the media. On reflection, my selection of words and the tenor was inappropriate, which I regret. The continued and unending tirade against me based on my loyalty and commitment to Pakistan cricket took its toll on me.

“I look forward to building and strengthening my relationships with the media but also hope their assessment, analysis and scrutiny will be on my work, performance and contributions,” Wasim added in his statement.
