LAHORE: Former cricketer Saleem Malik joined Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) on Wednesday.
Malik met senior leaders of the party, Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and Chaudhry Shujat Hussain at the latter’s residence, and announced his decision.
The former skipper appreciated PML-Q leaders for promotion of sports in the country.
Chaudhry Shuajaat on the occasion said his party had an open-door policy for all Pakistanis, committed to work for the betterment of the country.
Malik was one of three international captains, along with South Africa’s Hansie Cronje and India’s Mohammad Azharuddin, to be given life bans from all forms of cricket after Delhi police discovered evidence in 2000 that Cronje had accepted money from a bookmaker to throw matches.
