Miandad blasts PCB's treatment of ex-players
Karachi, Sep 26: Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad has blasted the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for shabby treatment of some of the top ex-cricketers during the Faysal Bank T20 Cup, which commenced at the National Stadium here on Sunday.
Miandad, who is the director general of the PCB, was also not spared and was shocked after the PCB sent him Chairman Box 'B' passes instead of Box 'A' for the tournament.
"I was surprised to receive Chairman Box 'B' passes instead of Chairman Box 'A' for the T20 Cup on Sunday afternoon. Being director-general and member Governing Board of the PCB, I can tolerate this kind of things. But don't treat legendary Hanif Muhammad, Zaheer Abbas, Moin Khan, Shoaib Muhammad and others in the same fashion," an angry Miandad was quoted as saying in the Pakistani media.
Miandad was offered no role in the organisation of the tournament despite holding a position on the cricket board.
As per rules, all former Pakistan captains, top players and signatories are invited to sit in Chairman Box 'A'.
"I felt humiliated and shocked to receive a box 'B' invitation card," he said, adding, "I am returning the passes and will be watching the matches on television."
Miandad said if the PCB doesn't have respect for director-general and governing body then what to talk of others.
Miandad also lamented the ill-treatment meted out to him by PCB chairman Ijaz Butt. He blasted the dictatorial and unprofessional attitude of PCB officials for not inviting Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah for the opening ceremony of the tournament. IANS
