PCB displeased over Md Aamir TV show appearance
According to a well-placed source in the board the matter had been taken seriously since Aamir didn’t inform them prior to accepting the invitation to appear in the show.
“This has happened just few days after the top PCB officials had met with Aamir in Lahore and briefed him clearly on what was expected off him in England,” the source said.
He said Aamir had been told to give his explanation since the board and team management had worked out a plan for him limiting his media appearances ahead and during the tour to England.
The source said what had upset Shaharyar Khan and other officials was that Aamir went for the show even though few days earlier he was advised to remain low key, avoid the media and show tolerance and patience while dealing with the media and opposing players and fans in England.
“He was also told clearly to improve his attitude and not antagonize his own teammates,” the source added.
The PCB filed a special case to finally secure a visa for Aamir who was among three Pakistani players found guilty of spot-fixing during Pakistan s tour of England in 2010.
Former captain Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif were not even considered for the England tour after English authorities conveyed to the PCB they would not be welcome in the UK this year.
