cricket Wasim Akram joins ‘Australia disaster’ inquiry committee
ISLAMABAD: Former Pakistan allrounder Wasim Akram has been appointed to the Pakistan Cricket Board’s inquiry committee looking into the national team’s poor performance on its just completed tour of Australia.
Akram replaces ex test batsman and PCB director of cricket development Haroon Rasheed, who resigned from the inquiry committee last week, the PCB said in a statement Monday.
Chief operating officer Wasim Bari heads the committee which also includes cricket board’s director of operations Zakir Khan, former manager Yawar Saeed, legal adviser Tafazzul Rizvi and governing board member Wazir Ali Khoja.
The committee is expected to meet later this week and submit its findings by the end February.
Australia whitewashed Pakistan in both the test (3-0) and one-day series (5-0). Pakistan also lost the tour’s only Twenty20 international by two runs Friday.
