Friday, May 16, 2008

The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Dr.Nasim Ashraf has withdrawn a 220 million rupees lawsuit against fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, PCB lawyer Tafazzul Rizvi said Tuesday.

PCB Chairman Dr Nasim Ashraf filed the defamation suit in a civil court after Shoaib accused him of demanding money from him and other players to allow them to play in a lucrative Twenty20 league in India.

The allegations came after Shoaib was banned for five years by the PCB's disciplinary committee for several counts of indiscipline.

Interior ministry advisor Rahman Malik, had intervened in the matter as per direction of PPP co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari and settled the issue.
