LAHORE: The former Pakistani Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Selector Abdul Qadir Friday said if he had been completely authorized, he would have expelled Shoaib Malik from the national team.
Addressing a press conference here, he said the PCB neglected the selectors while selecting the team, on which he resigned.
The former leg spinner said he accepted the office of chief selector to serve the national cricket, adding he tabled several plans to the board; however, he was not allowed to work freely; thereupon, he preferred to give resignation.
He said all the powers even regarding the selections have been given to coach and captain overlooking the selectors.
Abdul Qadir said he spotted the clash between Younis Khan and Shoaib Malik during Abu Dhabi series; had he been authorized, he would have dropped down both the players.
He said he is not willing to work with the PCB even if the board gives him ten million rupees.
Lashing out at the PCB Governing Board member Shakeel Sheikh, he said Sheikh is the cancer of the cricket; he should be kept at armís length from cricket.
