Lahore, Mar. 15 (ANI): Pakistani cricket team's manager Abdul Raquib has claimed that he never complained about the conduct of any player to the Pakistani Cricket Board (PCB).
"I never reported Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Yousuf, Younus Khan, Rana Navedul Hasan, Kamran Akmal for any disciplinary issue in my tour report," the Daily Times quoted Raquib, as saying.
"I don't know on what basis the Board has taken such strong action against these players but it seems to me that the Board is perhaps settling personal scores or simply taking out their frustration on these players," he added.
Raquib, however, said he had mentioned an incident in which he fined Umar Akmal for giving an unauthorised interview.
"I also mentioned in my report that I felt that Mohammad Yousuf on the tour had been a very defensive captain at times and that affected performance of the team at crucial times," he said.
Raquib said he never lodged any complaint against any other player in his report.
"I fail to understand why Younus has been dropped for indefinite period because he was not part of the team for better part of the twin-tour. Younus has been the victim of controversies and intrigues and I don't know why they axed him," Raquib said.(ANI)
