Ex-PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan Blames Najam Sethi for Financial Loss in BCCI Case

Written by Abhishek Patil

Former chairman Shaharyar Khan has held his successor Najam Sethi responsible for the huge financial loss suffered by the Pakistan Cricket Board after the ICC’s Disputes Resolution Committee rejected PCB’s compensation claim against the BCCI.

“I was always in favour of continuing negotiations and talks with the Indian board officials and also spoke to ICC bigwigs. It was Sethi who wanted to and eventually got approval to file the claim with the ICC committee when he was heading the board,” Khan said in an interview.

“The financial losses the board has now suffered, Najam Sethi is responsible for it.”

The ICC’s Dispute Resolution Panel on Wednesday had ordered Pakistan to pay around USD 1.2 million to the BCCI after the world body rejected the PCB’s compensation claim which blamed India for lack of bilateral series between the two nations.
