Karachi: Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhar on Tuesday lashed out at PCB chief Najam Sethi saying cricket in the country has further deteriorated under him, after a sudden withdrawal of allrounders Abdul Razzaq and Shoaib Malik from the South African tour due to fitness problems.
"This is really a joke and sad the way Pakistan cricket is being run. You mean to tell me no one knew about the fitness position of these players when the team flew straight to South Africa from Dubai," Akhtar said on Geo news channel.
"I don't know what is going to happen in Pakistan cricket because now it is at its lowest ebb. How can the team management and board say Malik and Razzaq are returning home because they are not fit. Didn't the selectors or team management not know the condition of these player why were they included for the South African tour," he asked.
