Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Operating Officer (COO) Shafqat Hussain Naghmi denied launching any inquiry into the Shoaib-Asif episode and said he was here only to attend the ICC Chief Executive meeting.
“We have already decided not to launch any inquiry into the incident involving Asif and Shoaib until the completion of the Twenty20 World Cup that is under way here. The matter is closed till Pakistan returns home,” he said.
Naghmi said launching an inquiry midway through a tournament would just be unfair to the team chances.
“There is no need to launch such an inquiry when the team is busy playing matches in an important event. We have already buried the matter till the team’s returns home,” he said.
He assured that his visit to South Africa was planned almost three months back and had nothing to do with the recent events in the Pakistani camp.
Shafqat Naghmi who is also the chairman of the PCB Disciplinary Committee said he intends to call a meeting of the disciplinary committee once the team returns home.
