KARACHI: Former Captain of Pakistan Cricket team Rashid Latif revealed on Wednesday that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) denied him to make chief of Anti Corruption Unit following orders of England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), ARY News reported.
The wicket-keeper batsmen said that ECB pressurized PCB for not appointing him for the post.
Rashid Latif said that ECB expressed reservation on his appointment because he was in a favor of Danish Kaneria, who has been banned after being found guilty of corruption by a disciplinary panel in relation to the spot-fixing case involving Mervyn Westfield.
He said ECB is not happy with him over his fight for Kaneria to get justice.
Rashid Latif further said he didn’t think it was fair that on one hand the PCB was pleading the case of a convicted player, Muhammad Aamir against whom undeniable evidence was found of spot fixing and not taking up Kaneria’s case with the ECB, even though there was only circumstantial and debatable evidence made against him.
