PCB cana€™t take action on me: Latif

Islamabad: Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has made light of the Cricket Board's threat of disciplinary action for alleging match fixing during recent India series, saying the PCB had no locus standi to do so since he was not a contracted player. Replying to a notice from the PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan referring his case to a disciplinary committee, a defiant Latif said that the comments made by him on television alleging match fixing after Pakistan lost the fourth one-dayer were the views of an individual and player who was not under contract with the board. "Rashid has said he believes the board cannot take disciplinary action against him but if they want to take any action they are free to do what they feel best," local daily The News said while reporting his reply to the PCB. Khan wrote to Latif last week informing him that his case has been referred to the disciplinary committee of the board headed by Justice Ameer Alam for further action. In his letter, the PCB Chief voiced his concern over the remarks made by Latif on television that the body language of players suggested the fourth match was perhaps "fixed". Khan said that the former captain had upset the board and members of the Pakistan team with his allegations. Latif who was ignored for the series against India despite being active in domestic cricket is presently busy writing his biography in which planned to reveal more about match fixing in international cricket.
