Pak National Assembly sports committee summons Butt, Bari to explain IPL 'humiliation'

Pakistan National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Sports has summoned Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt, chief operating Officer (COO) Wasim Bari and selector Mohammad Ilyas to explain the Indian Premier League (IPL) fiasco.

“We have asked Ijaz and Bari to attend and explain how they gave clearance to our players to participate in the Indian Premier League (IPL) bid without getting proper assurances that our players would not be humiliated in this fashion,” The Daily Times committee chairman Jamshed Dasti, as saying.

“We have summoned Ilyas to ask him about his statement he made against the sports minister and federal sports ministry,” he added.

Dasti criticised the PCB administration over the way it handled the IPL issue, saying the committee is particularly concerned over how the board has been dealing with India.
