Lahore, May 19 (ANI): Banned Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik, who was blamed for politics and infighting in the team during the winless Australia tour, was even described as a "termite" by a member of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) inquiry commission formed to probe the disastrous tour, a leaked video of a hearing of the commission has revealed.

The video, which is said to have been deliberately leaked by some of the PCB officials, show a member of the six-member committee using the word 'termite' for Malik after being told by some of the fellow cricketers and coaches Intikhab Alam and Aqib Javed that the former captain was the only person to be blamed for the lack of team spirit in the team.

The video also shows Alam and Javed alleging that they suspected that wicket keeper Akmal was involved in match fixing, which was evident from his shoddy performance throughout the tour Down Under.

"I have reservations over the way he missed the run out. When I saw it I couldn't believe it. How he could miss such a big run out? I can't say 100 percent that there is match-fixing, but I have my strong suspicions," The Daily Times quoted Javed, as saying in the video.

"I was flabbergasted when Kamran missed the run out. I have serious doubts about him. I have heard stories about match-fixing," said Alam. (ANI)
