Islamabad, Apr.21 (ANI): Former Pakistan fast bowler Sarfraz Nawaz has filed a defamation case against Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt.

Nawaz is angered with Butt's remark during a television show, in which the PCB chief had blamed the former speedster of demanding a hefty fee for giving coaching tips to youngsters at a training camp.

"The PCB chairman accused me of asking for 2.9 million rupees for a coaching role in the training camp. It is totally false and is just an effort to tarnish my image. I have filed a case in additional district and sessions court, Islamabad," The Daily Times quoted Nawaz, as saying.

He has demanded 100 million rupeesas compensation from Butt for maligning his image.

"The court has summoned Ijaz on May 6," Nawaz said. (ANI)
