LONDON: Pakistani High Commissioner in London Wajid Shamsul Hassan has strongly criticized ICC following its ruling of suspension of Pakistani cricket trio: Salman Butt, Mohammed Aamer and Mohammed Asif, alleged cricketer of spot-fixing allegations, Geo News reported Friday.
In his statement, he said ICC Chief Haroon Logart has betrayed Pakistani High Commission (PHC), by telling a lie.
He said: “Logart visited PHC at 5:30pm and stayed there for an hour.” “In the meantime, he hinted at avoiding to unnecessarily pressurize Pakistani players besides assuring not to dismiss or suspend trio from playing International Cricket”, he noted.
Subsequently, he left PHC excusing that he had some personal work to do but he issued orders of suspension of three players after a little while, he maintained.
