In a rare example of exposure, senator Anwar Baig is hell bent on exposing the ins and outs of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s chairman Dr. Naseem Ashraf. The news of the intermittent clashes between the two is circling for a quite a time now in print and electronic media, but in a recent outburst, senator Anwar Baig seems to be taking this matter several notches up.
According to senator Anwar Baig, that PCB has failed to accomplish anything worthwhile in the leadership of Dr. Naseem Ashraf, and one of its most glaring failures are the inability to implement the constitution of PCB. Though PCB has said it again and again that soon it would be implemented, and they have given the deadlines time and again. Their latest deadline was on 7th May, which is well past, and there are no signs of any constitution.
senator Anwar Baig also noted vehemently that PCB is relying on one man show and the chairman of adhoc committee holds the American nationality and is the personal friend of the patron of cricket board. He also said that the resignation of PCB’s chairman was just a fake show and also the chairman PCB is plundering the funds of cricket board with both hands, and he would escape abroad soon. senator Anwar Baig suggested that name of Naseem Ashraf should be added in exit control list.
senator Anwar Baig, also accused that chairman PCB appointed 8 coaches with salary of 50 thousands each, without consulting anyone, and they didnt deliver anything in the last 1 and half year. He also told to media in his press briefing that PCB paid a staggering sum Rs. 3 crores to the lawyer who represented PCB in Oval test, and then the same lawyer was invited to help Fakhar-ud-din Ibrahim in the doping test case, but Fakhur-ud-din refused to take his help and PCB paid Rs. 50 lac 40 thousands to that lawyer just for 1 day.
