{image-indian premier league_03052008.jpg www.oneindia.com}Lahore, May 3: Head of three-member appellate tribunal Justice (retd) Aftab Farrukh has asked PCB lawyer Tafazzal Hussain Rizvi to provide him with the details of correspondence between the national board and the lucrative IPL organisers.

Reports suggested that after the interim decision on April 30 into the temperamental seamer Shoaib Akhtar's appeal, the appellate tribunal wanted to know what progress has been made in the pacer's participation in the cash rich IPL. Justice Farrukh said as the appeal of Akhtar is still in process of hearing, there have been several issues that came to the fore after the interim decision of the tribunal. ''We want to know that whether the issues meant to influence the hearing,'' Justice Farrukh said.

The PCB lawyers informed that all information related to the talks between the PCB and the IPL have been given to the tribunal chief and the board would always be ready to provide what ever the tribunal would require.

''We cannot even think of influencing or interfering in the matters of the tribunal hearing,'' said the PCB lawyer.

On the other hand, Akhtar's lawyer, Abid Minto said they would decide the future course after having final say from the IPL organisers and if they refused to take Akhtar then he would ask the tribunal to resume the hearing.
