LAHORE: (Sports Desk) Former cricketers are thieves after the PSL 6 festival, Shoaib Akhtar demanded an inquiry from the Prime Minister. When PSL 6 was postponed due to administrative negligence, Shoaib Akhtar took the PCB by surprise and said that the reputation of Pakistan and our cricket had deteriorated, it was played with the lives of the people and the dignity of the country. I request you to intervene in this matter and conduct an investigation.
On his YouTube channel, the former Test cricketer said that it was the responsibility of the medical panel to safeguard the bio-bubble. Those responsible should be brought to book after a thorough investigation. The medical panel should not be pardoned under any circumstances. Why didn't you book the whole hotel separately for accommodation? Weddings were taking place there, people were getting their hair cut.
He asked why Darren Sammy and Wahab Riaz went out of the bio-bubble, how Javed Afridi, the owner of Peshawar Zalmai, met them. PSL is being conducted, all the debris is being dumped on Chief Executive Wasim Khan, where is the Chairman PCB Ehsan Mani who brought him? Was it Wasim's responsibility to answer here, Ehsan Mani should have been.
Rameez Raja said that there is such anger and frustration that as if someone has been betrayed, we could not sacrifice only 25 days out of 365 days of the year, it is a huge collective failure, stakeholders suffered huge losses. The reputation of the PCB was also affected.
He said that the world no longer has security concerns about Pakistan but people were watching how we conduct a mega event in the era of Corona epidemic, what will be the protocols, will they be violated? This is a big blow as the Australian team has to come to play 3 Test matches, now what are the Kangaroos thinking? The English squad also has to come to Pakistan. What will be their opinion? In view of these tours, it was necessary to pay full attention to the issues.
He said that the postponement of PSL has caused a great loss to the young cricketers as well. New talent including pacers was visible. Shahnawaz Dhani will ask why I did not break the bio-bubble. Gaya, the hopes of the players who wanted less back also turned into despair, due to a stupid attitude, the opportunities got out of their hands, PSL is our world brand and not the neighboring country's and the whole world was watching it, 2 Or the stupidity of 3 people drowned the whole tournament.
