Qadir ready to spill the beans in book on his 'experience' with PCB

Posted By: Staff

Lahore, June 30 (ANI): Former Pakistan cricket chief selector, Abdul Qadir has charged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) of ruining cricket in the country, and said that he could write a book on his seven month long 'experience' with the board.

"I can write a book on my seven month tenure in the PCB, but right now the time is not appropriate," Qadir said.

Qadir, who resigned from the post following altercations with the team management, PCB chief Ijaz Butt, and coach Intikhab Alam, said he would not work with the board again even if it offers him a 10 million rupees per month package.

Commenting on Pakistan's ICC World Twenty20 Championship triumph, he said it was not appropriate to shower all praise on the coach for the team's performance, as the coach is not solely responsible for the victory.

"I will give credit to captain Younis Khan who turned the team into a fighting unit," The Daily Times quoted him, as saying.

When enquired about the omission of Shoaib Akhtar from the ICC T20 squad, he said there has been a 'conspiracy' against the pacer.

"If Shoaib had committed mistakes in the past then why was he not taken to task then," said Qadir and claimed that Akhtar was hundred fit to play when he was excluded from the team. (ANI)
