“ His (Javed’s) reply is not satisfactory and PCB authorities believe that he twisted the facts in it and also tried to conceal facts and he has been given a week time to submit his detailed reply after which the case will be decided “,said the sources in PCB here on Wednesday.
Javed was issued a show cause notice on September 27 for his out-burst against President,LCCA, Khawaja Nadim Ahmed and working of the LCCA on a TV show which forced the PCB to take notice of the situation and to come up with a disciplinary measure.

The sources said that PCB is looking into the matter seriously as it relates to the regional bodies which are working under the control of PCB. They dispelled the impression that issuing another notice to Javed was aiming to extend him any favour or to adopt delaying tactics to linger on the issue.
“ There is nothing such going on and PCB will be deciding this issue on merit and that is why Javed has been issued another notice to answer certain queries to conclude it early as possible “,they said.
