Karachi, Nov 23 : The Indian cricket board (BCCI) has taken a serious note of the comments made by former Pakistan cricket captain Javed Miandad, who was a couple of days ago appointed as the new Director General of the PCB, accusing the BCCI of 'bullying tactics'.
In one of the interviews after taking up the new assignment, Miandad said that the PCB was under a lot of pressure from the public and the media to include breakaway ICL players in the national team.
He also accused the BCCI of 'bullying tactics' which have caused players to suffer.
According to sources, an unidentified BCCI official expressed the Board's annoyance over Miandad's comments with a senior PCB official during a telephonic conversation on Saturday.
The interview has caused a major headache for the PCB top brass, which is currently making efforts to ensure that India send their team for a much-awaited series here in January-February.
India are scheduled to play three Tests, five One-day Internationals and a Twenty International but the tour remains in doubt because of security concerns.
