PCB writes to SLC


The Pakistan Cricket Board wrote a letter to Sri Lankan Cricket, asking them if they have any objection to the comments made by Ahmed Shehzad to batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan.

According to reports, the PCB is waiting for the reply to initiate further action against Shehzad.

The board has also issued a stern warning saying that he should just concentrate on cricket.

The PCB is investigating religious comments by Pakistan batsman Ahmed Shehzad to Sri Lanka player Tillakaratne Dilshan after their one-day international last Saturday.

While the players were walking back to the dressing room in Dambulla, Shehzad was caught on camera telling Dilshan "if you are a non-Muslim and you turn Muslim, no matter whatever you do in your life, straight to heaven."

Dilshan's reply was not audible, and Shehzad went on to say, "Then be ready for the fire."

Shehzad was summoned to PCB headquarters in Lahore on Wednesday and asked about his comments.

However, Akbar said the PCB was still investigating the matter.
