Shoaib Akhtar lashes out at PCB’s Counsel!
Shoaib Akhtar, one of the biggest known names of Pakistan and the amazing Pakistan pace spearhead, recently responded to the defamation case notice that was filed by PCB’s legal counsel Tazzaful Rizvi.
Shoaib Akhtar said:
“Whatever I said on my channel was for the betterment of Pakistan cricket and to point out to the board where it needed to put things right. Whatever I said about Rizvi was based on my personal interaction with him.”
He further added in his tweet that:
“My comments about PCB & Mr. Rizvi are an expression of opinion given in public interest to point out shortcomings in PCB with hope for improvement.”
It all started when Shoaib Akhtar, on his YouTube channel, called the former “inept” while he condemned the ban of three years that is being imposed on Umar Akmal. On that, Rizvi had served Shoaib Akhtar with a defamation notice.
Tazzaful Rizvi had asked Shoaib Akhtar to apologize and donate 10 million to a charity. On the other hand, Shoaib Akhtar has refused to comply and said he will fight the case.
However, PCB has rebuked Tazzaful Rizvi and also stated in their video statement that the notice that Tazzaful Rizvi served was in his personal capacity and PCB has no connection with it whatsoever.
