Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Saleem Malik has lashed out at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for refusing to review his life ban and for not recognising a welfare association in which he is actively involved to hold a benefit match at the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore.

Malik, who now sports a beard, said he was fed up with the double standards of PCB and the International Cricket Council (ICC).

"I was banned for life for alleged match fixing in 2000. I appealed against the ban in the sessions court, Lahore High Court and Supreme court and finally in 2008 the sessions court lifted the ban but the board refuses to accept the judgement and reopen my case," Malik told PTI on Wednesday.
