Karachi: Pakistan opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad has sparked yet another controversy by breaking the dressing room glass of the Faisalabad’s Iqbal Stadium on Sunday. The incident took place during a Pakistan Cup clash when stand-in captain Shehzad failed to score a century for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and was dismissed for 79 against Balochistan. Venting his anger, a furious Shehzad broke the dressing room glass by hurling his bat, the Dawn reported.

Reflecting on the matter, the 24-year-old insisted that it was not an intentional act and that what happened in a dressing room was just a reaction to his dismissal before reaching the three-figure mark. Ahmed, however, assured to bear all expenses to replace the damaged glass. Earlier this year, Shahzad was fined 30 per cent of his match fee after being found guilty of making ‘inappropriate and deliberate physical contact’ towards pace bowler Wahab Riaz during the Pakistan Super League.

Talking of the speculations surrounding the selection of Pakistan’s chief coach, former batsman Salim Malik had demanded that the PCB chief’s post should only be confined to cricketers. Insisting that non-technocrats should never be appointed as the PCB head, Malik stressed that only the cricketers would be in a better position to understand the problems of the team and resolve them amicably, the Dawn reported. Malik also welcomed the appointment of former player Inzamam-ul-Haq as the national chief selector, saying that he was a well-known skipper of his time and affirmed that he would surely ensure a proper policy to work.
