Why EX-PAK Captain Rashid Latif targeted PCB over match-fixing allegations?

The elimination of the Pakistan team in the ongoing T20 World Cup has created a huge sensation in the local media. From factionalism to differences among senior members of the team, the local media has made several theories to arrive at this conclusion.

A big question mark has also been raised on the preparations of the Babar Azam-led Pakistan team for the ODI World Cup 2023 and T20 World Cup 2024.

Despite the excellent gaming shown in the previous matches of the team, Pakistan suffered an unexpected defeat, which badly shattered the team’s hopes. As a result, many allegations have also been raised against them.

Former captain Rashid Latif has strongly questioned the team’s Chairman Board (PCB) in front of the media. He has also targeted the departments facing match-fixing allegations on social media.

Latif wrote in a post on X,

“Pakistan’s exit from the World Cup has caused the most damage to our electronic media, which includes news channels and sports broadcasters (broadcast rights). Those who have broadcast rights to show the matches are expected to suffer a loss of 30% to 35%.

The ratings of the channels are also surprisingly low, because the Pakistan team is back home and the news channels and sports channels are blaming the players and the team to save themselves and the cricket board is a mute spectator.

While in the case of Haris Rauf, the message of Chairman PCB came immediately, but where there is a serious allegation like match fixing, the entire legal department is silent and incidentally, the CEO of PCB is a lawyer by profession. People are wondering that maybe it did not change the direction of the guns to save itself?”
