PCB committee recommends ban on Umar Akmal, Wahab Riaz, Shoaib Malik & Ahmed Shehzad

Sources said that PCB’s committee has prepared its report which will be presented to the board’s Chairman Shahryar Khan on Friday (today).

It is being said that the fact finding committee has stated in the report Shahid Afridi’s attitude was the reason of the national team’s poor show in the tournament.

It should be noted that Pakistan were knocked out of the tournament after managing to win just one match in the tournament. They could only overcome Bangladesh in the Super-10 stage but were eliminated from the running following losses to Australia, India and New Zealand.

It was also mentioned that the T20 skipper played with four pacers in the match against India despite being refrained by the Head Coach Waqar Younis, sources said.

The committee, as per sources, has confirmed that grouping did take place in the national side during the team’s World T20 campaign. The body has also stated that the performance of Wahab Riaz, Umar Akmal, Ahmed Shehzad and Shoaib Malik was “surprisingly below the standard”.

Sources have added that the probe committee has suggested PCB to impose an announced or unannounced ban on the four players.

It was also mentioned in the report that Mohammad Amir was forced to play the matches against Australia and New Zealand despite being unfit to perform in the matches.

    if were two groups then both should be punished as both groups protected each other to stay selected as a WT20 squad for Pakistan and kept exploiting instead of reporting alleged conflicts to the board which could have taken the actions.

    I just cannot understand how Shoaib Malik’s performance was below standard. Coming at tough circumstance, Malik scored 40*, 15*, 26, 15* in the 4 World T20 matches he got to play. Also Malik was probably their leading run getter for the tournament. Anyway his performance with the ball was pretty dismal which in my opinion is pardonable.
