Sohail Saleem says he did not resign from PCB

KARACHI: Almost two months after the Pakistan Super League-6 was postponed in Karachi in March, former director of Pakistan Cricket Board Dr Sohail Saleem has revealed that he had not resigned.

In an interview to a leading daily he said, Wasim Khan was the one who demanded his resignation and “I resigned without any delay”, he added “but in my personal opinion I was been made a scapegoat for mismanagement and other responsible people have been saved.

Dr Sohail Saleem claimed that he also have some stories that he did not want to tell in the national interest.

In his first official interview after his resignation former director of Pakistan Cricket Board said that if the PCB had conducted my co-training, the report of the fact finding committee was not shared with him, so “I would know that what have I done wrong? There is no shame in parting ways with the PCB.”

Former director PCB said that the facts were just the opposite.” I did two international series, including the entire domestic season. I worked 365 days and nights and I was rewarded for it.”

It may be noted that the bio-secure bubble for Pakistan Super League was designed by Dr. Sohail Saleem. However, after the some developments that took place during the league, the Pakistan Cricket Board had said that Dr Sohail Saleem has resigned.

 Dr Sohail have been engaged in PCB for the last 22 years.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) later formed a two-member fact-finding committee to look into the matter.
