‘PCB has asked T10 League for explanation’ says Subhan Ahmed


The Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Chief Operating Officer, Subhan Ahmed on Wednesday said that they have asked the T10 League management for an explanation over criticism made on them for being corrupt.

Ahmed while talking to the media in Lahore said that there are lots of queries over the T10 League hence they want to investigate the tournament which is ten-over-a-side.

Ahmed revealed that the PCB called Test cricketer Umar Akmal to ask him about the fixing-allegations made on him by Arab TV in a documentary.

“We have called Umar Akmal for questioning him about his appearance in a documentary released by Arab TV regarding spot-fixing scandals,” he said.

“The PCB has ‘zero-tolerance’ policy over spot-fixing issues,” he added.

He was quick to add that a single picture can not decide whether Umar was involved in it or not so they have decided to listen to his verdict over the issue.

“It is just a picture but still we want to investigate this issue in deep,” he stated.

It is pertinent to mention here that Umar Akmal is busy playing cricket abroad and will report to the PCB on his return.

On the other hand, Ahmed said that they have formed a task force to work for the betterment of domestic cricket in the country.

“We are keenly looking forward to making our domestic cricket circuit more strong,” he said.

He said that some decisions taken in the first meeting of the task force were criticised but they will try to take fruitful steps in the coming meeting of the committee.

“The things will take some time to get settled down, hopefully, the coming meetings of the task force will stand on some good decisions,” he said.
