Lahore: Former Lahore High Court (LHC)’s judge Justice (Retd) Fazal-e-Miran Chauhan, in his capacity as an independent adjudicator has adjourned the hearing of former cricketer Saleem Malik’s appeal till October 12.
Saud Nasrullah, Saleem’s lawyer is confident that the decision will be based on merit. “We have submitted a response to the appeal and the PCB submitted a reply today, a copy of which we received. I hope there will be a decision on merit.”
Former captain Saleem said that they have submitted all the things required for the case. “We have submitted what was required for the case. We will discuss from where the ICC transcript came. We hope that justice will be done and I will get my due.”
It must be noted that Saleem appealed against PCB’s rejection of his reply to the transcript which asked about his London meetings following the Anti-corruption case in 2000. This was the second time when PCB rejected Malik’s reply terming it ‘unsatisfactory’.
