Rashid Latif a former Pakistan skipper on Wednesday warned PCB chiefs that he would go to court if any rules are flouted to pave the path for the firstTwenty20 league in Pakistan. PCB has announced programs to host the country’s T20 league next March and is presently making efforts to stage the event that would be organized on the lines of IPL.
There’re clear signs that PCB would shortly sign up Haroon Lorgat, the ex- ICC chief, to help it run the proposed league in a successful way. Lorgat visited Pakistan a couple weeks back to talk about the proposed league and is now back in Lahore reportedly to sign an agreement with the PCB. Rashid Latif has questioned whether the PCB is following guidelines as it takes steps for the starting of the T20 league which has already been named as the Pakistan Premier League (PPL).
“I would go to court (again) if rules are violated in PPL’s announcement by the PCB,” mentioned Rashid Latif, a staunch critic of PCB’s plans.
Rashid Latif, who played 37 Tests and 166 ODIs for Pakistan has already registered an application against the PCB for the “betterment of cricket”.
