PCB unaware of Yousuf taking ICL to courtDecember 13th, 2007 - 4:33 pm ICT by admin
Karachi, Dec 13 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that it is not aware of Mohammad Yousuf taking the India Cricket League (ICL) to the court, but reiterated support to the batsman on the issue.
Some media reports had claimed that Yousuf has filed a suit in a Lahore civil court in which he has asked for hefty 21.5 crore rupees as compensation for damaging his reputation and causing him mental anguish.
The reports further claimed that he made former captain Moin Khan, who is working as an agent for the ICL, a party in the case.
“Yes we are 100 per cent behind Yousuf in any move by the ICL to drag him to court or claim damages from him for not playing for them. But until now we do not have any knowledge of Yousuf having filed any petition in Lahore,” Shafqat Naghmi, a Board official said.
“I think given the way we have been involved in this ICL issue if Yousuf decided to file any petition he would talk to us about it,” Naghmi added.
Yousuf has claimed, as per reports that he had returned the first instalment of the contract money, and asked for the cancellation of his ICL contract, The News reported. (ANI)
