April 22nd, 2010 - 2:12 pm ICT by ANI  

Lahore, Apr.22 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has clarified that it would not issue any notice to coach Waqar Younis over his faux pas in connection with the announcement of replacements for injured players.

Waqar had wrongly announced the name of rookie fast bowler Mohammed Irfan as a replacement for injured all rounder Yasir Aarafat.

Later the PCB clarified that left-arm spinner Abdul Rehman and not Irfan was included in the West Indies bound team.

PCB Chief Operating Officer (COO) Wasim Bari described the issues as a closed one and said there is no need to create any further fuss over it.

“We all just want to focus on the World Cup which is a very important tournament for us and this whole issue is a closed chapter now,” The Daily Times quoted Bari, as saying.

Sources said that Waqar along with captain Shahid Afridi had called PCB chief Ijaz Butt and offered an apology for the gaffe. (ANI)
