'Pak players retarded'

‘Dawn’ newspaper carried excerpts from the findings of the inquiry committee that was formed by Pakistan Cricket Board to look into the poor performance of team in Australia and reports of in-fighting in the team.

According to the excerpts, Alam who was sacked after the Australia tour, told the committee that he felt “they are mentally retarded people.

They do not know that they are representing the country. They don’t know how to wear their clothes and how to talk in a civilised manner,” Intikhab told the committee members when he appeared before them in early March.

When contacted, Intikhab at first outrightly denied the remarks attributed to him in the report.

Former assistant coach Aaqib Javed also described Younis as a very arrogant captain who didn’t mix with the players neither helped them out.
