PCB directed to give evidence against cricketers

Express April 30, 2010

KARACHI: The Appeal Committee on bans and fines to cricketers asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Friday to provide all proofs of accusations to the cricketers.

The first session of appeal against Younis Khan, Shoaib Malik and Rana Naveed ul Hasan was held at the National Cricket Academy. Younis Khan appeared before Justice Retired Irfan Qadar Committee with his lawyer Malik Muhammad Ahmed while Shoaib Malik and his lawyer Khawaja Ahmad Hasan and Rana Naveed and his lawyer Imran Qureshi also appeared in the committee.

Younis Khan gave two demands including the actions of the meeting to remain open to media as well as the evidence of all the accusations to be provided. His lawyer was hopeful that justice would be provided to the cricketer but said that if this was not the case then they could go any length.

Justice Retired Irfan Qadar said that Shoaib Malik and Rana Naveed have requested for their proceedings to remain in-camera and that facility will be provided to the players during their hearings.

Younis Khan's case hearing will take place next week while Kamran Akmal and Shahid Afridi's case will be discussed in the last week of May, as they are busy in the World Cup.


morfi | 13 years ago | Reply Younis is not afraid - he wants the public to know what injustice has been done to him and how the board is really incompetent. Rana / Malik shd fight this but we wont miss them if they spend a year out. Younis shd return to lead Pakistan in Tests and ODIs in the summer series in UK. Yousuf is silly not to have appealed. He must return to the team for tests and odis.
