New Delhi: Newly appointed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Shaharyar Khan on Friday criticised Ahmed Shehzad for offering religious advice to Sri Lankan player Tillakaratne Dilshan during an ODI last week, saying it was a "stupid statement" on part of the Pakistani batsman.
"It was a stupid statement really. He has no business to talk about religion on the field, especially when you are on a foreign tour," Shaharyar said.
"It is mentioned on the players' contract that you are not supposed to talk about religion on the field. Having said that, it was not said in an aggressive tone. It was a friendly advice but it was surely silly," he said.
