LAHORE: Legal adviser of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Tafazzul Rizvi said this is a great achievement of the board that the accused Pakistani cricketers - Mohammad Aamer, Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt – have returned to the country.
Tafazzul Rizvi hailed the return of the three cricketers, involved in match fixing charges, and termed it a good omen.
He said that the PCB succeeded in convincing the Scotland Yard and this is its great success.
The legal adviser said that the PCB never left the players alone and supported them at every stage. However, the Board’s efforts proved fruitful.
He said the case made against the players is not strong and even during the investigation, no charge was made against Aamer, Asif and Salman Butt.
Rizvi said the Scotland Yard allowed the players to go back to their country as they did not doubt them.
He said that Scotland Yard could call the accused players again if needed for investigation and until then they will remain in Pakistan.
