Karachi, Oct. 12: Pakistani all-rounder Abdul Razzaq, who was supposed to lead his team at the Hong Kong Super Sixes this month, has become doubtful of his participation in the event as he faces disciplinary action from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Razzaq’s name was proposed along with Umar Akmal, Junaid Khan, Yasir Shah, Hammad Azam, Tanvir Ahmed and Ovais Zia. An official of the PCB said the decision of Razzaq’s inclusion was subject to his clearance on disciplinary offence.
“The board is yet to announce the team. As far as Razzaq is concerned, he requires clearance as he is facing disciplinary action for code of conduct breach,” The Express Tribune quoted the official, as saying.
Razzaq was given the notice for criticizing skipper Mohammad Hafeez over his ouster from the ICC World Twenty20 semi-finals in Sri Lanka. Razzaq said Hafeez should have had the courage to admit this instead of shifting the blame on the team management. (ANI)
