LAHORE: Former fast bowler of the national cricket team Aqib Javed has revealed that his career ended soon after he spoke out against match-fixing. Aqib Javed said in a statement that if you speak against fixing, you can go up to a certain extent. Because of speaking against this issue, I could not become the head coach of the team.
Defending former national team captain and middle-order batsman Saleem Malik, the former fast bowler accused of match-fixing, said he should get another chance and get a job on the cricket board. Aqib Javed further said that the facts were also hidden in the Justice Qayyum Commission. He said that the match-fixing mafia is huge and there is no way out.
He said that there is nothing to be done on the 20-year-old issue. Cricketers came a lot but the mafia was not identified. He said that the cricketers and the mafia involved in fixing should be punished. Aqib Javed said that my strong case against fixing had reached the court and I had also given a complete statement to Justice Yousuf regarding fixing.
