Zimbabwe's Sikandar Raza opens up on Faulkner vs PCB controversy

Pakistani-Zimbabwe cricketer Sikandar Raza has talked about James Faulkner vs PCB controversy as the Australian player left the Pakistan Super League (PSL 2022) developing issues with the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Faulkner added that he is ‘ill-treated’ by the board alongside mentioning his financial demands have not been fulfilled. It must be noted that like every player, PCB paid Faulkner 70% of his salary, whereas, the rest of it was to be paid after the league. The player, who was representing Quetta Gladiators this season, demanded a duplicate payment in another account, which was unethical. Also, he damaged the hotel’s property alongside misbehaving with the airport’s security staff.

Zimbabwe’s Raza, whilst defending his homeland’s image, stated that payment has never been an issue in the PSL since no other player than Faulkner has arrived with such accusations in seven years.

Moreover, concerning Faulkner’s nationality and Pak vs Aus 2022 series, Raza said the controversy will not infringe Australia tour of Pakistan as Faulkner has been at mistake. The PCB will release the proof in a short course. It must be noted that the ex-PSL player has a tainted past as he developed problems with the nation’s own tournament, Big Bash League’s Hobart Hurricanes.

Sikandar Raza’s statement reads:

1. Payment was never an issue @thePSLt20 and no Overseas player has ever complained.
2. Hosting PSL in Pakistan over the last couple of years have proved that it’s safe and @TheRealPCB is hosting it successfully
3. Anyone suggesting that this will jeopardize Aus tour are delusional
