Rashid Latif Bats Economically For Danish Kaneria

What he said:

"I would say it’s an economical murder of a player who has served the country very well and is still eager to continue."

Former Pakistani skipper, Rashid Latif, continues Pakistani cricketers’ saga of recriminations against their administrators.

Latif accused the PCB of a lackadaisical attitude to one of the premier spinning talents in the country—Danish Kaneria.

Kaneria was arrested for spot-fixing together with fellow Essex bowler Mervyn Westfield in 2010 but was released without charge.

An hearing of an integrity committee of the PCB failed to clear him. Kaneria has filed a petition in a bid to force the PCB to allow him to represent the country.

Latif claimed:

All around the cricketing world they preserve their players, however in Pakistan the ideology is just the opposite as the PCB is destroying Kaneria’s career.

He is the most successful spinner of the country, hence should be treated with respect.

What he really meant:

“It’s not a reference to Kaneria’s bowling figures.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Who’s Adam Smith? And what’s he doing on a cricket field?”
