Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has lashed out at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for deciding to send 10 officials with the national team in its upcoming tour of Sri Lanka.
"I don't know what they are trying to do but this board is full of ignorant people and it is useless tying to talk sense into them," Akhtar said. (Pakistan invited to play in Champions League T20: Report)
The fast bowler said he didn't understand the purpose of appointing so many officials with the team. "This board is spending 150 million rupees just on salaries and it has more than 700 employees and what is the net result...nothing," he told Geo News.
