It was earlier in April when Shoaib Akhtar accused Tafazzul  Rizvi of profiteering by creating protracted legal disputes between the board and its players and called him an inept person of the highest order.

In response to Shoaib Akhtar’s accusations, the PCB adviser had filed an Rs10-million defamation suit against Shoaib Akhtar.

“The remarks given by Shoaib Akhtar has affected my goodwill,” Rizvi had said.

“He said false things about me on social media. His remarks were seen and heard abroad as well. Therefore, I decided to take legal action against him.”
