LAHORE :District Cricket Association Buner (DCAB) President Rasheed Khan and General Secretary Sirbiland Khan have blamed District Sports Officer (DSO) Suleman for Buner cricket team’s defeat in the Inter-divisional Cricket Tournament held in Sawabi, saying the DSO selected blue-eyed players for the event.
Addressing a press conference, Rasheed said: “Suleman works as per the directives of PTI leader Bakhrad Khan and Zahid Khan, who is an employee of Benazir Income Support Programme. Buner team badly failed in the event and earned a bad name for the district due to lack of merit-based selections. DCAB members were kept in the dark regarding government sports funds, which were misused for some blue-eyed people. Not only DCAB but presidents of all sports associations would address a joint press conference against the DSO.”
On the other hand, the DSO rejected the allegations and said: “He reserves the right to file a defamation case against Rasheed and his supporters. The record of selections is available and anybody can check it to remove his doubts.”
