Majid Khan calls for audit of PCB's accounts
Lahore, June 28 (ANI): Former Test opener Majid Khan has demanded that the federal government audit the Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) accounts through the Pakistan National Assembly's public accounts committee.
Addressing a press conference here on Friday, Khan said: "Financial irregularities are on in the PCB and the public accounts committee should intervene to bring the real picture before the nation."
Khan also welcomed the decision of the federal government of levelling income tax on the PCB in the fiscal budget.
He said he was not opposed to the President of Pakistan being the patron of the board, but recent decisions were harming the game.
Criticizing the current selectors, Khan said it had distributed a good number of green caps during the home series against Zimbabwe, but none of the younger cricketers were given a long run.
He said the bad attitude of players such as Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Asif and others were the direct result of PCB's lack of control over things.
"They have been protecting Asif and Shoaib from day one despite their antics. They appointed Shoaib Malik as captain who under ICC rules and regulation could face life ban for admitting in public that he had fixed a Twenty20 match," Dawn quoted Khan, as saying.
"The board did not take any action against Inzamam-ul-Haq, who decided to forfeit the Oval Test after facing ball-tampering allegations," he said
Khan said that the non-technocrats did not know the importance of the cricketing associations which were the real resource of producing players. (ANI)
