Faisalabad: Pakistan’s opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad on Monday denied the news that he broke the glass of dressing room in frustration after missing out on a century against Balochistan during Pakistan Cup.
Shehzad, who was made the captain of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa side after Younis Khan’s sudden decision to leave the tournament, was dismissed for 79 runs off 70, and rumors stated he broke the glass in frustration.
Sources said Shehzad, after failing to complete his century against Balochistan on April 24, smashed the dressing room’s window to vent his anger.
Shehzad, while talking to a private news channel, said that such rumors are not true and added that his bag placed by the side of the glass, and while keeping his bat over there he accidentally broke the glass.
He will pay for the broken glass from his match fees, sources said. However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is yet to take note of the incident.
Shehzad said that he wanted to clear the air and controversy that was brewing because he is the captain of the side and he feels that it is his responsibility to clarify such a situation.
Ahmed Shehzad also said that the news regarding PCB’s decision to fine the right-handed opener was also not true as he has received no such notice from the Pakistan Cricket Board.
