A understandably aggrieved Basit Ali spoke on TV today in reaction to allegations of corruption levelled at him by PCB management committee member Shakeel Shaikh

"Shakeel Shaikh is a top, which spins in all directions."

"He's against me just because I opposed his views on domestic structure."

"His son used to do Iftar and Sehri at my place."

"My wife cried all night yesterday after allegations against me."

"His son apologized me across phone on behalf of his father."

"Shakeel Shaikh is corrupt and has no knowledge about cricket."

"His son played 17 matches with an average of just 11."

"He made his relatives play cricket for Islamabad region."

"He spoke ill of Aamer Sohail, Javed Miandad and myself, all of whom have served Pakistan with distinction"

"I will go to court against Shakeel Shaikh."

What Shakeel said was poor, but i dont think there was a need to mention his son in this. I would like to know the context of it though.
 
I heard Basit Ali doing commentary on tv the other day, the guy knows his cricket
 
Finally, good to see someone challenge this guy who has a wrong habit of slandering everyone be it national captain or ex-player's.
 
Basit Ali, You were great talent, I loved your batting... and you said you will go to court but do you know what will you get from there????? I feel so sorry for you... Because you will just waste your time and money without getting anything.

You can get something only if you learn "Yes Sir" and your did a great decision as PM and learn couple of abusing to the sacked person and praises for the new appointee. That's the only way things can go on your side other wise i will suggest don't waste your time and money..
 
wait i dont get it, you are suing someone for slander, but you, yourself are saying the same stuff about him.

What weight will this lawsuit have then?
 
After England, Pakistan are a close second when it comes to cricketing meltdowns.
 
Arsal Sheikh still gets picked for Pakistan Under 19, its basically going in with 10 men.

He bats at 11 and just bowls a couple of over, generally 4 (in odis)


not to mention for a while Shakil's nephew Zohaib Ahmed who is a nothing allrounder would go on Pak A tours over Yamin, Hammad and Nawaz
 
did basit ali ever take him to court or was that yet another typical empty threat?
 
" Insert the name of any cricket administrator in Pakistan is corrupt and has no knowledge about cricket": Basit Ali
 
Basit is there and so SS. Lots of people with skeletons in their cupboard and none better or worse than your average criminal.
 
Favouritism in PCB denying genuine talent, alleges Zohaib

ISLAMABAD - Highly talented Islamabad’s all-rounder Zohaib Ahmed Saturday said he was fully fit and ready to help not only Islamabad Region, but Pakistan cricket as well for next 3 to 5 years.

32-year-old Zohaib, during an exclusive interview to The Nation, said his morale was low because of selector’s snub despite he had been declared the best all rounder in 2014 and 2015.

He lamented that as he had no approach in the PCB he had been denied from representing Pakistan team.

“Talent of Islamabad especially and to some extent Rawalpindi as well, go waste as no one in the PCB bother to discuss our brilliant and unmatched performances and that too at consistent basis. I was working very hard and wanted to help Pakistan cricket as Pakistan team was facing huge crisis after England series where Salman Butt, Asif and Aamir were found guilty of spot-fixing. I was producing match-winning results for my region Islamabad both as skipper and as an all-rounder. I started to even receiving congratulations from different players, as my name was considered for Pakistan team in the T20 Internationals. But without any reasons and without any chance provided to me, all of a sudden, my name disappeared. It was arguably highly dark period of my professional carrier as I had made commitment to myself that I will not join any department despite having huge offers and will continue to serve my Region, Islamabad, which provided me first breakthrough.”

He said like every other cricketer, he had his bad luck as well, as he got injured in 2016 and underwent treatment aboard and finally last year and now he had completely recovered from his back injury.

He said he has two offers in place to play cricket in UK like he had played for last decade or so and hopefully in next two to three months, I will be fully back and will give more than 100 percent.

Zohaib said he was just 32 and could yet make his way into the national team through his performances.

When asked whether he really thinks that being the nephew of most powerful PCB governing board member Shakil Shakih was a setback and it had negative impact on his career or it had benefited him, Zohaib replied: “Frankly speaking, Shakil had never ever interfered and we all cousins suffered badly as people level baseless allegations. The matter of the fact is records. Check the PCB website and decide whether I had ever taken any benefit for being Shakil Shakih’s nephew. The PCB had to change this dual policy and genuine talent must be provided equal, free and impartial opportunities. Selectors and captain have huge say. We don’t have anyone in the board who could raise voice for Islamabad players. I can name at least dozen players, who could have easily played for Pakistan. Imad Wasim had to wait for years and as soon as he was provided first chance, he proved his mettle. Same is the case with me and others, until and unless given chances, our efforts, hard work and records mean nothing. I feel genuine talent of twin cities face step-motherly treatment at the hands of the PCB and selectors.”

He said he was a fighter and he would continue to fight for his due right as he still has five golden years ahead of him. “I will shut my critics mouths with performances. I had played 83 first class matches, scored 2333 runs, while I played 63 list A matches and had scored 938 runs and 50 T20 matches and scored 541 runs. I took 161 wickets in first class, 33 in list A and 41 wickets in T20 domestic matches besides helping Islamabad win major titles and also helped PTV to get promotion from Grade-II to first class. Next domestic season will determine my claims and let me assure all, that I will prove my fitness in the first class and every given opportunity,” Zohaib concluded.
