Karachi: The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board Najam Sethi has summoned chief selector Moin Khan to Lahore for a meeting on Thursday following the outbreak of a controversy over the captaincy issue.

Just hours after former Test captain, Moin Khan told a press conference in Karachi on Tuesday that a change in captaincy had been discussed for the one-day side, Sethi issued a rejoinder making it clear only he had the power to appoint the captain and that as far as he was concerned, Misbah-ul-Haq would remain skipper until the World Cup 2015.

"Obviously this faux pas by Moin put the board in an embarrassing position since given the track record of Misbah's captaincy in Test and one-day cricket and his own form there is no justifiable or logical reason for changing him as captain of the one-day side before the World Cup," an insider in the PCB told PTI.
