ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Members of National Assembly’s (NA) Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination on Monday expressed their outrage over Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shehryar Khan’s absence during the proceedings of the committee, reported Dunya News.

NA standing committee’s members enquired from PCB Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmad that why was opening batsman Mohammad Hafeez sent to take part in the series against England if he was unfit, to which Ahmad replied that the decision to include Hafeez in the squad was made keeping in view the physio’s report.
