LAHORE The Pakistan Cricket Board has dismissed the allegations made by former Pakistan Test cricketer Aamir Malik against PCB chairman Ijaz Butt. Aamir Malik, who played 14 Tests for Pakistan, never had any experience of team management or board administration, yet he has been given a forum to attack the PCB, said the PCB in a statement. His interview is a contradiction in itself. He criticises players who have been playing for Pakistan for the past 10 years, and praises the same experienced players Muhammad Yousuf and Younus Khan, the PCB said. He criticised the players for poor performance yet praised the coaching staff which was also appointed by the same board, the statement added. By questioning the players of the calibre of Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik, he questioned the selectors who have been picking these players regularly in the past seasons, the PCB said. The PCB further said: His words regarding PCB chief, decorating PCB headquarters with people like Javed Miandad and Wasim Bari, are in especially bad taste as both of them have served Pakistan cricket both on and off the field with distinction.
