Manager submits report to PCB on Abu Dhabi incident


The manager of the Pakistan A team that recently won the EurAsia Cricket Series in Abu Dhabi has submitted his report on the entire happenings of the tour and has mentioned the incident involving four players.

A source in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said Shafiq Ahmed had delivered the report on Thursday to the Board offices and had outlined in detail that Hasan Raza, Misbah-ul-Haq, Taufeeq Umar and Zulqarnain Haider did indeed go to Dubai without informing the management.

A senior official of the Board has said that this in itself was a serious punishable offence.

The source said since Chairman Shaharyar Khan and Director Board Operations, Abbas Zaidi, didn’t appear too keen to take any hard action, in all probability the four players might be let off with a fine and reprimand.

The four were detained by the police while returning to Abu Dhabi in the wee hours of May 4 and spent nearly 12 hours in the lock up for not having identification with them before the team management rescued them.

The Pakistan A team is also due to travel to Australia next month to play matches against the Australia, New Zealand and India A sides and the source said he didn’t believe the Abu Dhabi incident would endanger the chances of the four being selected for the coming tour. Pakistan had beaten India in the EurAsia Cricket Series final.
