Fact-find­ing com­mit­tee sub­mits re­port on ‘Haider episode’ to PCB

The Pak Banker - - International3 -

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
