Lahore, Nov 23 (UNI) The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken a serious note of the comments made by Javed Miandad, who has been appointed as the new Director General of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
The legendary batsman has accused the BCCI of using 'bullying tactics'.
''A BCCI official privately expressed his Board's annoyance over Miandad's comments with a senior PCB official during a telephonic conversation yesterday,'' close sources said.
Recently, the former captain was appointed as PCB's Director General by its chairman Ijaz Butt.
However, in one of the interviews after taking up the assignment, Miandad has said, ''The PCB is under a lot of pressure from the public and the media to include breakaway ICL players in the national team.'' He also accused the BCCI of 'bullying tactics' which have caused players to suffer.
This comments from the former great has caused a major headache for the PCB top brass, which is currently making efforts to ensure that India send their team for a much-awaited home series here in January-February next year.
India are scheduled to play three Tests, five ODIs and a Twenty20. The tour, however, remains in doubt because of the security concerns.
