Dainik BhaskarFeb 22, 2020, 03:13 PM IST Sports Desk. The ICC-accredited Pakistan Super League (PSL) started on Thursday. On Friday, a match was played between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Jalmi. During the match, the alleged coach of Karachi Kings was seen chatting on mobile phone in the team's dugout. He also had very close players. The ICC also woke up However, he too asked it to investigate by calling it a domestic tournament of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Shoaib Akhtar expressed displeasure over the incident. However, PCB is not yet ready to open the tongue in this case.
In every case, it is not possible as per ICC rules, players and staff phones have to be deposited with the Anti Corruption Unit before the match. Walkie-talkies can only be used. The manager is allowed to use the mobile phone in emergency, but there are strict conditions for this. Phones cannot be used during matches in dugouts, dressing rooms or pavilions. The ICC said on the PSL case – this is the domestic tournament of PCB. We cannot interfere in every case. The PCB will investigate the matter. The PCB on the other hand is silent. Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar shared a photo of the incident, terming it a very wrong act.

Manager who? PCB Chief Ehsan Money did not consider it appropriate to respond to media queries on the incident. Karachi Kings coach and former Australian batsman Dean Jones said in a tweet, "The person talking on the phone is our CEO Tariq Vasi. He was doing his work. CEOs and managers in all T20 leagues can talk on the phone. He was talking about practice. " The matter becomes interesting here. Jones called Tariq Vasi as CEO. However, the team's media manager Faizal Mirza described Vasi as the manager. While media reports Naveed Rashid has been described as manager. That is, the mix seems very deep.
Like in ALL T20 cricket. The manager / CEO is the only one allowed to have a phone. In this case Tariq .. our CEO is doing work. Here he is organizing us practice times for today. Thanks for your concern. https://t.co/UORGtmMlro — Dean Jones AM (@ProfDeano) February 22, 2020
