Match-fixing row: Afridi to send legal notice to Miandad today

KARACHI: All-rounder Shahid Afridi will send a legal notice to veteran former cricketer Javed Miandad today asking the latter to withdraw his match-fixing allegations or else face legal action, sources revealed to Geo News.

Afridi is set to meet his lawyer today evening and will be sending the notice to Miandad soon after, the sources said. In the notice Afridi will demand that Miandad withdraw his allegations and apologise to him or else face court action.

Miandad had accused Afridi of selling Pakistan’s matches in response to Afridi’s statement that the former coach was always talking about money. Later Miandad said he had pardoned Afridi, however Afridi has asked Miandad to withdraw his allegations which Miandad has not done so far.

Meanwhile, a lawyer based in Islamabad has already sent a legal notice to Javed Miandad demanding that the former coach produce evidence of match fixing, failing which a case would be registered against him.

The lawyer, Mohammad Naeem Khan, has no association with Afridi but has cited public interest as the reason for his decision to send the notice.

Afridi has said that the match-fixing allegations caused pain and grief to him and his family and fans.

“I consider him an elder and hope he’ll take back his actual words else I’ll have to seek answer and justice to clear my reputation in court,” Afridi said on social media earlier this week.
