Former Test captain Aamer Sohail has denied ever having any argument with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Director Board Operations, Abbas Zaidi, during a dinner hosted by former Chairman Lt General (retd) Tauqir Zia for the Pakistan and India senior teams in Lahore last week.
â€œI never used any crude language nor had any argument with Zaidi. The fact is that when Javed Miandad and Zaidi were talking I overheard him (Zaidi) say something about cricketers. I just went up to him and told him he should not generalise cricketers. He told me â€œAamer I am not talking about you,â€ Sohail said on Wednesday.
â€œLook I have no grievances with anyone and if I had any problems I can handle it myself. In fact when Zaidi was leaving the function he stood with me and my wife for around 10 minutes before going,â€ Sohail said.
Former captain Javed Miandad had claimed that after he had an argument with Zaidi, Sohail had also joined in and given a piece of his mind to the Board official.
â€œNo it is not correct. I never used any strong language against anyone. I have no grievances. Why should I do this?â€ Sohail said.
Meanwhile Director Cricket Operations, Saleem Altaf, when contacted said that he was disappointed with the incident and felt that Miandad should not have behaved the way he did.
â€œI donâ€™t think this was the right forum for anyone to air his grievances. As it is donâ€™t former players use the television to rubbish the Board all the time. And what has Zaidi got to do with all this. Why target him?â€ Altaf said.
