India’s former captain, Mohammad Azharuddin has decided to stay away from the controversial T10 League due to media reports surrounding it.
Indian batsman, who played 99 Test matches, was offered the role of director of a talent hunt in India for the T10 League.
Azharuddin took Twitter to reveal his decision.
“I was asked to take on the role of director of a talent hunt in India for the T10 League, but with recent media reports surrounding the league, it’s better I stay away from this. I wish the league all the best,” Azharuddin wrote.
Earlier, Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) chairman, Ehsan Mani expressed his reservations over the source of funds for the T10 League.
He refused to issue NOC (No Objecting Certificate) to Pakistani players and he does not want any of them to get in any sort of trouble.
“I will first satisfy myself that we have enough information on the T10 League before we allow our players to play it,”. Mani said previously.
“We have to be satisfied where the money is coming from. We have to be satisfied who the sponsors are, we have to be satisfied who the franchisees are. None of this information exists in any file in the PCB today”. he added
