PCB paid Miandad 8.4 million rupees for seven days of work: Butt

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, Feb.7 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt dropped another bombshell on board's director general Javed Miandad saying that the former captain was paid 8.4 million rupees for a week's work in an year.

"Miandad has cost the board 8.4 million rupees for just seven days of work," Butt said during a function at the National Cricket Academy (NCA).

Butt also accused Miandad of violating the board's code of conduct.

It may be noted that days ago Butt had said that Miandad was being paid 7.5 lacs, and if his other expenditures were to be included, he was costing the board almost 10,00,000 rupees.

Miandad had strongly objected to Butt's remarks about his salary.

Meanwhile, Miandad has said that despite his sincere efforts he is not being allowed to carry out his duties.

"If an employee is not working then it is the responsibility of the employer to take action. And if I have not been working for the last one year, why has the chairman not taken any action against me?" Miandad told reporters here.

"I tried my level best to do my work (as DG of the board) and to give best suggestions to the chairman. But I was not allowed to do my work at any occasion, the reasons best known to the chairman," The Dawn quoted Miandad, as saying.

He said President Asif Ali Zardari, as the Patron of the PCB had appointed him, and added that he would quit the board whenever the President advises him to do so. (ANI)
