PCB and FIA Clash:
Clash between Pakistan Cricket Board and Federal Investigation Agency has also been resolved in the meeting held between authorities of both bodies. The session was being held after the investigation of Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan.
The board will send data to the investigation agency after completing its investigations. The agency could then initiate its action against criminals.
FIA will also provide assistance to PCB’s tribunal regarding forensics and other matters for timely completion of the inquiry.
The inquiry has been launched against cricketers who were allegedly involved in match-fixing during the second edition of Pakistan Super League. PCB has initiated the inquiry against players and at the mean time FIA also launched its own investigations which created a little clash between both bodies.
However, on Wednesday both bodies reached consensus and decided that PCB would continue its probing and the data will later send to the investigation agency.
