Zaheer Abbas Blames PCB for Pakistan’s World Cup Misfortune

Zaheer Abbas criticizes PCB management for Pakistan W.C. performance.

“If they appoint favorites, the game will continue to suffer,” Abbas expressed on the “Geo Pakistan” segment of Geo News. He continued, stating that some individuals aim to sabotage national sports.

The former president of the International Cricket Council (ICC) pleaded, “For God’s sake, give cricket to sportsmen.”

According to latest news headlines, Inzamam-ul-Haq, the former captain, faced criticism from him for his choice to resign as chief selector during the World Cup.

“No resignation has ever occurred in history while the team is away competing in the World Cup,” stated Abbas. He went on to say that following the defeat by India, the team’s performance suffered.

The Pakistani team, which is about to be eliminated from the World Cup in India, is coming under fire. According to today news headlines the controversy surrounding the board also stems from the PCB head’s leak of captain Babar Azam’s private chat with a high-ranking board official.

Things took a bad turn when Inzamam quit his position as head selector during the World Cup due to claims that he was a partner in a player management company.

“People talk without doing any research. After receiving questions, I felt it would be best to step down,” Inzamam said in a statement.

Since the revelation of Inzamam’s ownership of stock in a company associated with players’ agent Talha Rehmani, people have accused him.

Given that Rehmani represents a number of Pakistan’s top cricket players, including Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaheen Shah Afridi, this revelation raised questions about possible conflicts of interest.

Questions also arise regarding whether Inzamam’s dual roles as chief selector and a shareholder in a company representing elite cricket players might influence player selection.
