Ehsan Mani slams PCB, Pak High Commission's role in 'spot-fixing' scandal

Former International Cricket Council (ICC) President Ehsan Mani has slammed the Pakistan Cricket Board for its handling of the spot-fixing scandal.


Islamabad, Sep 4: Former International Cricket Council (ICC) President Ehsan Mani has slammed the Pakistan Cricket Board for its handling of the 'spot-fixing' scandal.

Mani said that the PCB had done nothing except talk about playing those players until proven guilty.

"If the allegations are proven, the whole thing is totally unacceptable. Everyone involved in cricket, especially the ICC and PCB, have always said they adopt a no-tolerance policy to this kind of thing," The Dawn quoted Mani, as saying.

"'But what has been disappointing is that the PCB has not taken the lead in this case since the whole issue broke. Since it happened, the players would not have been in a fit state of mind to play a cricket match. The PCB has lost the moral ground on this one," he added.

The former ICC chief further said that the PCB lacks professionalism.

"They have failed to educate the players and failed to monitor the movement of people following the players who they knew about and who they had warned the players not to have contact with. Only warning the players is not good enough," Mani added.

He also opposed Pakistan High Commission's involvement in what he deems is a cricket matter.

"It is not right that the government should be involved in this. We cannot talk about the players at this stage, but the PCB has not come out very well in this. They should have been taking a lead role," Mani said.
