Karachi, Feb 16(ANI): Pakistan's all- rounder Abdul Razzaq could face a disciplinary action from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for allegedly lying to the selectors that he was unfit to bowl in England series.


A source close to the selection committee told The Nation that Razzaq was granted a No Objection Certificate by the PCB for participating in the Bangladesh Premier League(BPL) after he told selectors that he would not unable to bowl, if selected for the England tour.


"Razzaq was under consideration for the one-day series against England. But he informed the selectors that due to a shoulder injury he couldn't bowl. He claimed he should be given a NOC for the BPL where he would only play as a batsman," the source said.


"The selectors didn't consider him because Razzaq said he was not fit to bowl. But now Razzaq is bowling for Rajashahi side in the BPL. He is not only batting, but also bowling regularly for them, which is strange," the source added.


Pakistan's chief selector M Illyas confirmed that Razzaq had informed him that he would not be able to bowl in the BPL.


"I don't know what the situation now is? But he told us he was not fit to bowl," Illyas said.


Sources close to the PCB said that chairman Zaka Ashraf had taken note of the incident.


"Razzaq will be asked to give an explanation over how he claimed he was unfit to bowl," a source said.


Razzaq is playing for Duronto Rajshahi in the BPL. (ANI)
