Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed Lt. General (r) as the head of committee which will look after the disciplinary matters regarding the board and the team. General Munir is the former Corp Commander and a member of PCB’s governing board.
PCB is stressing this committee much, and the sources in the board are hinting at massive expected steps by this committee, which could disturb many senior players in the team including Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Akhtar. PCB’s chairman likes this committee thingy, and he has created plethora of committees to run the board and the team. This new committee will work under the directions of chairman PCB, and chief operating officer of PCB will participate in every meeting of this committee.
The basic reason behind the erection of this new committee is to control the players of Pakistani team, who are really getting out of bounds. As usual, the name of Shoaib Akhtar is at the top of the list. This committee was formed after PCB received large number of complaints regarding his discipline from the manager of the team, skipper and some of other players. PCB also took notice of many media reports regarding the activities of this speedster, who did everything but bowling sensibly.
Media is also reporting that PCB has decided to get rid of this constant nuisance, and it is more than likely that after the tour of Australia ends, PCB would suggest Shoaib to take retirement from the international cricket in a dignified manner, or else PCB would just skip him for the further all the series. PCB is also not happy with the conduct of some other players, but the problem with PCB is that it hasn’t got much choice in the replacement.More on:India, Munir Hafeez, Pakistan, PCB, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar, Talat Ali
