The legal advisor of the board, Tafazzul Rizvi said that the PCB had filed a damages and defamation suit against the two former players in the district court in Lahore.
“The Additional District Judge Sohail Shafiq has granted us a restraining/stay order against Sarfaraz Nawaz and Aamir Sohail from leveling false, malicious and defamatory allegations against the PCB and Najam Sethi in the print and electronic media,” Tafazzul Rizvi said.
The two former players in particularly former Test pacer Sarfaraz Nawaz had made serious allegations against Sethi, who is presently a senior member of the board and heads its executive committee.
