Karachi:

Former captain Javed Miandad on Monday offered to return as the Pakistan Cricket Board's Director General on an honorary basis provided other PCB officials also agree to work without pay.

"Anyone who says I resigned because of money issues is misguided. I challenge all the officials of the Pakistan Cricket Board to start working on honorary basis and I will do the same," Miandad said, refuting reports that he stepped down from the post because of a pay dispute.

Miandad reiterated that he had not been given the job responsibilities fitting his status and experience as a former captain and coach.

But media reports have claimed that Miandad wanted a salary of around Rs 800,000 to Rs one million whereas PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt offered him Rs 500,000, the same salary paid to chief operating officer, Saleem Altaf the senior most employee in the board after the Chairman.

But Miandad rubbished these reports.

"The Director Human Resources Wasim Bari himself a former Test captain had recommended to the board that I be paid according to my status and experience," he said.

"My main complaint is over the job responsibilities given to me. Am I supposed to only look after domestic affairs? It is like they have tried to demean me," Miandad said.
