Defamation case: Younis calls for evaluation of Akhtar’s remarks

The legal advisor send RS100 million notice to the world’s fastest bowler for his remarks regarding Umar Akmal’s ban
30 Apr 2020
  • The legal advisor send RS100 million notice to the world’s fastest bowler for his remarks regarding Umar Akmal’s ban. Rizvi has asked Akhtar to retract his statement while tendering an unconditional apology.

Former Pakistan captain has backed legendary fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, after Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi filed defamation lawsuit against the pacer.

The legal advisor send RS100 million notice to the world’s fastest bowler for his remarks regarding Umar Akmal’s ban. Rizvi has asked Akhtar to retract his statement while tendering an unconditional apology.

The Rawalpindi express had accused Rizvi of having personal agenda against Pakistan Cricketers, after the board handed three-year ban to the middle-order batsman.

"The PCB's legal department is rotten to the core. Tafazzul Rizvi in particular is one such individual. He has deep connections and has been with the board for 10-15 years," said Akhtar. "The thing that angered me the most was when he dragged Shahid Afridi in courts. I believe that stars are born and must be respected, and these lawyers use our high-profile cases to earn fame."

"He is an idiot of the highest order and has lost cases against me, Afridi, doping case ... everything. What he does is that he pits PCB against its players and profits off of their legal wrangles," he added.

Younis Khan, the World T20 2009 winning captain, backing Akhtar’s remarks asked the board to honestly evaluate bowler’s remarks.

“What a befitting and bitter truth spoken by Shoaib Akhtar! It takes a backbone to be simply uncompromisingly forthright. Time for the PCB to honestly evaluate his remarks for the betterment of Pakistan Cricket and its players. I stand by with #ShoaibAkhtar,” said Younis in a tweet.
