KARACHI (AFP) - A parliamentary committee on sports is to probe Monday the falling standards of Pakistan cricket and the controversy behind the resignation of the director general of the cricket board, a top official said. The committee has summoned team management, former director general Javed Miandad and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials for the meeting in the capital Islamabad. Pakistan suffered their heaviest one-day defeat - by 234 runs - against Sri Lanka in the series-deciding one-day match in Lahore last month which handed the visitors a 2-1 series win. In the aftermath, captain Shoaib Malik was replaced by senior batsman Younus Khan. Malik, coach Intikhab Alam and chief selector Abdul Qadir will also attend the meeting to explain the reasons behind the loss. Senator Tahir Mashhadi said the committee is determined to find the causes behind the deteriorating standards of the team. "Cricket is our top game so we want to address the reasons behind team's defeat against Sri Lanka and want to improve our cricket board affairs, which look in a shambles," Mashhadi told AFP. Mashhadi said the resignation of Miandad was also on the agenda. "We have requested Miandad to give his version and wants to listen PCB's point of view on Miandad's resignation and we want to resolve the issue," said Mashhadi of last month's resignation by Miandad, who wanted more power in the administration. Mashhadi said Miandad had not been treated fairly. "Miandad has given his life to Pakistan cricket and was the man behind Pakistan's World Cup success in 1992 and he did not deserve the treatment meted out by the PCB." The committee is also expected to probe PCB chairman Ijaz Butt about his failure to convince foreign teams not to worry about security and travel to Pakistan. The International Cricket Council last week moved this year's Champions Trophy out of Pakistan after top teams refused to travel to Pakistan over security fears.
