The Pakistan Cricket Board chief, Nasim Ashraf, quit on Monday in one of the first fall-outs of the resignation of President Pervez Musharraf.

The PCB announced the resignation of Ashraf just an hour after Musharraf resigned. "After the President resigned, I also felt morally bound to resign," Ashraf, who was appointed as PCB chief in 2006, said.

Under PCB's constitution, the President of the country appoints the cricket chief and Musharraf in his nine-year tenure appointed three men to this position.

In his letter to Musharraf, Ashraf said, "I have informed him that I can no longer continue my duties and would like to be relieved as cricket chairman."
