The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suspended one of its coaches from the domestic cricket panel over sexual harassment charges against him. Investigations into allegations in regard are pending against Nadeem Iqbal, the former fast bowler.
The complaint regarding sexual harassment got PCB’s attention last week and is also the object of police investigation going on. Notably, he was the head coach for the Southern region and will not be handling duties until he is clear of the charges.
It must be noted that the previous PCB management selected Nadeem as the head coach but he has not been around the teaching programmes for the last two years. However, he is yet on the board’s payroll.
According to the directions of the board’s media manager, the details will be shared soon after the investigations carried on are down and dusted.
As far as Nadeem’s career is concerned, he was considered even better than Waqar Younis back in time. However, he could not make it to international cricket. Nadeem Iqbal has 258 wickets in 80 first-class matches and in 49 List A matches, he took 65 wickets. He retired from the game in 2004.
Nadeem Iqbal has been suspended from coaching by the (PCB) after charges of alleged misconduct came to the board's notice.
Sources claim that Iqbal suggested the girl,who was a fast bowler,to join the college cricket team and also promised her a job five years ago.#CricketRoom pic.twitter.com/rz9n1K3GDs
