Former Pakistan pace bowler Aaqib Javed has revealed that his international career was cut short due to the strong stance he had against match-fixing.
Even though Javed feels that his personal views on the matter had a detrimental effect on his career, he made it abundantly clear that he does not regret it at all.
“When I came to know about fixing, I took a strong stance and stood by it,” he told cricketpakistan.com.pk. “I don’t regret the fact that it shortened my career as I strongly believe in my values.
“People tried to sideline me from tours because of my stance and would also reprimand those people who would talk to me.”
The 46-year-old represented Pakistan in 22 Tests and 163 ODIs.
