Karachi: Former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf is contemplating suing his successor, Najam Sethi for defamation after he was accused of not accounting for 20 million rupees spent during his 22-month tenure and also of gross mismanagement.

A source close to Ashraf told PTI that the ousted chairman had been consulting his lawyers over the issue as he was very upset with the allegations of misuse of funds and mismanagement being made out against him by Sethi and the present managing committee of the board.
