Fact-finding committee submits report on ‘Haider episode’ to PCB
KARACHI: The threemember committee appointed to probe into former wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider's dramatic escape to London after abandoning his team ahead of a match against South Africa, has submitted its report to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Following the bizarre episode in which Haider had disappeared from his team hotel in Dubai, only to resurface in London and seek asylum there, the PCB had terminated Haider's contract and formed a fact-finding committee- headed by team manager Intikhab Alam and including team security manager Khawaja Najam and PCB official Subhan Ahmed-to establish the facts surrounding his disappearance, the Daily Times reported.
The committee finalised and submitted its report to the PCB on Monday, said the board, declining to make any further comment. Meanwhile, the ICC said that its anti-corruption staff had met Haider in London and offered support to him. The player faces severe punishment for violating ICC ethics by not telling the council that he was asked to influence match results for money. -PB News
