Controversy has once again struck Pakistan cricket and this time it is the nephew of the legendary Pakistani batsman Javed Miandad i.e. Faisal Iqbal who is the head coach of Baluchistan team in the upcoming National T20 Cup First XI tournament. PCB has removed Faisal Iqbal as the head coach of Balochistan over an ongoing inquiry against him in Pakistan International Airlines.
Faisal Iqbal, 38, is in hot waters after a departmental inquiry has started against him for submitting a fake Matriculation certificate to PIA way back in 2003. Pakistan Cricket Board in an official statement said:
It would be unfair on Faisal Iqbal as well on his side [Balochistan] and the tournament if he competed in a major domestic tournament until he had resolved and settled the matter with his parent organization [PIA].
Assistant coach of Balochistan, Wasim Haider has taken the charge temporarily in the absence of Faisal Iqbal. Faisal Iqbal can assume the charge of head coach once all the allegations on him are cleared.
