Moin's recent incident has only added fuel to the fire.

"We have launched an investigation over the reports that Moin Khan visited a casino, action will be taken if the reports prove true," Khan told reporters. "As per initial reports, Moin Khan went there to have a meal two days before the match against the West Indies and a Pakistani couple photographed him and made a video," he said.

"But we will not make anybody a scapegoat and will investigate this incident before taking any action."

Pakistan are languishing at the bottom of Pool B after consecutive defeats, prompting cricket fans in the country to hold a mock funeral for the national team. Pakistan next play Zimbabwe in Brisbane on Sunday.
