Lahore(September 12, 2018): Chairman Junior Selection Committee Basit Ali has said that rumors about Chief Selector Inzamamul Haq asking him for a favor with regards to his son’s selection are baseless.
“Such rumors are baseless,” he said. “Inzamam never approached on the issue of his son’s selection in the junior side. People should refrain from believing any such news on social media.”I also asked the Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsan Mani to set up an inquiry committee to ensure that malicious elements behind this issue can be brought to justice.
Earlier rumors circulated in the social media that Inzamam had called up Ali and inquired about why hasn’t his son been selected in the U19 side. On the other hand, Inzamam has also denied this rumor and stated that no one has contacted the junior selection committee. He said the allegations came as a surprise to him and he will take the matter to the chairman of PCB.
“I strongly refute this unfounded and malicious claim. For the record, no one from junior selection committee was approached and there is no truth in this. I am taking this matter quite seriously and will be meeting PCB chair for an open inquiry on this matter tomorrow,” he said in a tweet.
