What a waste of talent, PCB needs to do their own investigation instead of following third party decisions and throwing their assets in the dark

Why was the case not thrown out after Westfield refused to appear before the tribunal. Every accused has the right to face and question his accuser. In UK the police commissioner made a statement regarding some charges against some police officers----" who benefitted from from it---as no one did so there would be no prosecution ". Pakistan should have stood by its players----Asif and other----who benefitted from those " so called no balls "----as no one did---there should have been no case---. Pakistan threw out its best because it did not understand how to fight for its rights.

its not up to the PCB. Its the ICC rule that if one country's cricketing body (like ECB) bans a player then the ban has to be enforced by every other ICC member board

I still cannot believe that he is guilty of any wrongdoing.
