'No job satisfaction' leads to Sohail's resignation from PCB

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, July 21 (ANI): Former Pakistan Test cricketer Aamir Sohail resigned from the National Cricket Academy (NCA) director's post, as he was not satisfied with his job.

Sohail, who submitted his papers on Monday, said there was 'no job satisfaction' in the work he was assigned by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), so he decided to quit.

"It has always been my principle in life that I have to achieve the task given to me. But while working with the PCB I wasn't able to do that. There was no job satisfaction," The Daily Times quoted Sohail, as saying.

He said he would once again be turning to the commentary box for a career.

However, PCB insiders said Sohail had developed serious differences with chairman Ijaz Butt which apparently is the prime reason behind his resignation.

"In the past few months, Aamir had got frustrated as several of his suggestions and plans had been sidelined," sources said.

According to sources, Sohail, as director NCA and Game Development had forwarded several plans to the PCB, but the board's reluctance to release funds for their implementation is supposed to have irked him.

Earlier, PCB's Director Human Resource, Wasim Bari had issued a show cause notice to Sohail asking him to explain his absence from the ICC Development Course held in England recently.

"Aamir, who left a lucrative career as an expert cricket commentator to join the PCB as a director, was also not getting along with senior PCB officials including director-human resource Wasim Bari," sources added. (ANI)
