KARACHI: Former Test cricketer Mushtaq Ahmed believes that Justice Qayyum Report based on the match-fixing issue of 2000 must be put on the side permanently.
Mushtaq appeared in ARY News’ show ‘Bouncer‘ in which he talked about Justice Qayyum’s report. “Justice Qayyum report is based on ifs and buts. Two players had been declared clear by the court, the rest of them were just accused. I think it should end now, PM Imran Khan and PCB must take ownership to finish it permanently,” he said.
Meanwhile, Mushtaq also addressed their revolt against the then captain Wasim Akram in 1993. He shared that Inzamam-ul-Haq, Waqar Younis, Basit Ali, and Rashid Latif alongside him revolted against Akram.
“I regret that we revolted against Akram. At that time, we thought it was right but now when I think of it so I believe we did wrong,” he recalled.
“We were very young at that time and I think few people played around us. I will not name anyone but it happened. Actually, we were upset with Wasim Bhai’s attitude towards us after becoming captain despite our good friendship. I believe there was a communication gap between us that led to that revolt,” he shared.
