Lahore, Oct 26 (UNI) After being sacked as a coach, Geoff Lawson has involved the Australian High Commission in Pakistan to recover his dues from the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Lawson has contacted the Australian HC in Islamabad and told them about the working permit and its clauses, and that he was not given his full dues after he was sacked on October 24, sources told a private website.

Sources added that the former Australian pacer has also returned the cheque that he received as severance PCB as it was well short of his dues.

As per the clause of the Lawson's agreement with the PCB, either party was due to give a notice before ending the agreement three months in advance, which meant that the PCB could not have ended his contract until January next year.

The PCB had ended national team coach Geoff Lawson's contract with a three months' pay as compensation on October 24.

Lawson was hired after the former Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer was found dead during the 2007 World Cup in West Indies.

His two year contract was due to end in 2009.

Earlier, the PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt had said Lawson was ''useless'' but the Australian will be allowed to complete his contract.
