Razzaq believes Hafeez should have included him in the squad more often during the World Twenty20
Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq has announced that he has hired a lawyer after being handed a show cause notice by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for his critical remarks about Twenty20 captain Mohammad Hafeez.
Razzaq lashed out at Hafeez for only letting him play one match in the entire International Cricket Council (ICC) World Twenty20, and was also infuriated for not making the squad in the semi-final against Sri Lanka.
The Nation quoted Razzaq as saying: “I will see the show cause notice and consult with my lawyer before deciding on my future course of action. I will be looking into my options before deciding what to do about the notice.”
The PCB also noted that Razzaq, despite not being a centrally contracted player, broke the code of conduct by talking to the media without authorisation.
“What Razzaq has done is a serious offence under the code of conduct and we have sent him a notice asking him to respond within seven days,” a PCB official said.
