Pacer Wahab Riaz to also sue bookie Majeed

wahab 561 Pacer Wahab Riaz to also sue bookie Majeed
LAHORE: After Imran Farhat and Umar Akmal, Pakistani pace bowler Wahab Riaz has become the third player to threaten a legal action against bookmaker Mazhar Majeed for claiming that he was also on his payroll and was involved in fixing matches.

“Definitely, I am consulting my lawyers and will also seek advice from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as the allegations made by Mazhar Majeed are a slur on me,” Wahab said.
Left-arm pacer Wahab, who made his Test debut on the England tour, was also questioned by the Scotland Yard in connection with investigations into the spot-fixing scandal after he was seen exchanging a jacket with Mazhar in a video released by British tabloid News of the World last August.
However, Wahab on Friday said that he was not amused by Majeed’s claim as the bookmaker was not his agent at any stage. “He is neither my agent nor a close friend, he is just slandering us for personal gain that is all. And I have every intention to send him a legal notice to expose him,” he added.
