Shoaib Akhtar, known as Rawalpindi Express, has responded to the James Faulkner claims and subsequent ban from the Pakistan Super League (PSL) by saying that the foolish behavior of the Australian all-rounder” should be dealt with appropriately.
“Faulkner’s dumb behavior should be dealt with appropriately,” Shoaib Akhtar said in an Instagram video, which he captioned, “Faulkner’s foolish behavior should be dealt with appropriately.” At the same time, @therealpcb and @cricketaustralia should work together to ensure that the positive relationship between the two boards continues. “No one is more important than the game.”
As a result of his removal from the Hobart Hurricanes of the Australian Big Bash League, Akhtar said that James Faulkner had wrecked everything by misbehaving despite the fact that he had been given an opportunity by the Quetta Gladiator.
He stated that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Cricket Australia should investigate the situation carefully in order to ensure that the next Pakistan-Australia series does not suffer any consequences.
He stated that it is critical for him to ensure that the Australian visit to Pakistan does not become involved in any controversy as a result of the recent incident.
Yesterday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Quetta Gladiators issued a joint statement, denying the charges leveled by Australian player James Faulkner regarding non-payment and abuse during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2022 season.
A statement from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Quetta Gladiators expressed their displeasure with the “reprehensible behavior of Mr. James Faulkner” and asserted that, in the seven years of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), no player had ever complained about the PCB’s failure to meet its contractual obligations.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) stated that James Faulkner’s egregious misconduct was an attempt to bring the PCB, Pakistan cricket, and the Pakistan Super League into disrepute by his actions. Moreover, the PCB and its franchises have unanimously agreed that James Faulkner would not be drafted in any future Pakistan Super League tournaments, according to the board.
