Salim Malik threatens to go to ICC if ignored by PCB

Former Pakistan captain Salim Malik on Tuesday threatened to go to ICC anti-corruption unit and tell them everything he knows about the corruption in Pakistan cricket if the PCB does not give him justice.

He said he would bring everything in front of the board, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

“I am not against anyone and I did not name any person from the start, all I am saying is just read the Justice Qayyum report.”

He claimed that Wasim Akram did not ask me anything and I did not tell him anything.

“My son Shafay Malik was targeted and was not selected just because of me,” he claimed.

“If PCB would have anything then why did they not come up as I fought the case for eight years,” he added.

It is pertinent to mention that Salim Malik on April 27 apologised to the nation over match-fixing after 19 years and said he was ready to reveal all the secrets linked to match-fixing due to which he was banned for life.

In a video message he said he was sorry for what he had done 19 years ago and he was ready to extend unconditional cooperation to the ICC and PCB.

Right-handed Malik, 57, was found guilty of match-fixing and was banned for life after a judicial inquiry in 2000 in a scandal that rocked the cricket-mad nation.

Australian cricketers’ trio of Shane Warne, Mark Waugh and Tim May had accused him of offering them bribes to underperform during their tour of Pakistan in 1994-95.

Malik’s ban was lifted by a Pakistani court in 2008 but the decision was not endorsed by PCB or ICC.
