LONDON: Chairman of England and Wales Cricket Board has said on Sunday that previous Pakistani captain Imran Khan’s announcement about remote players is annoying.
In a meeting, Colin Graves communicated his worries over Imran Khan’s announcement after Pakistan Super League 2017 closed in Lahore not long ago.
He said that Khan’s announcement with respect to Darren Sammi and Dawid Malan who landed in Lahore for the last match of the PSL was ‘stigmatizing’.
Khan’s announcement that focused all the remote players who had touched base in Pakistan for the association pulled in a great deal of fire for the head of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
In a video that was asserted as a confidentially discussion with a writer, Khan was seen expressing that “I don’t know even the name of any of these purported remote players. I can’t help suspecting that they have been gotten from all over, some got from Africa to disclose to us that they are outside players. We don’t know who these individuals are.”
Graves said that outside players who touched base in Lahore merited regard and gratefulness and no abuse for playing the last match in spite of security concerns.
Organization of PSL and Pakistan Cricket Board effectively composed the match in Pakistan in spite of concerns globally.
Remote players of Quetta Gladiators including Kevin Pietersen declined to come to Pakistan and the cricket board substituted them with other worldwide players.
