Cricket team fully capable of winning upcoming world cup, says Munawar

Amir jamaat-e-Islami Syed Munawar Hassan has said that the national cricket team is fully capable of winning the upcoming world cup, adding that he is hopeful that the team would give surprise to the nation by winning the world cup.
He said that the well wishes of the whole nation are with the cricket team, adding that the Pakistan Cricket Board had left alone the cricketers charged with the spot fixing allegations and the PCB is responsible for the punishment announced by the ICC.
This Syed Munawar Hassan said in a panel interview on the occasion of visiting the South Asian News Agency (SANA) here on Sunday.
He said that the PCB had not initiated any steps for pleading the cases of Salman Butt, Muhammad Asif and Muhammad Amir, who were alleged with the spot fixing charges.
He said that until the incumbent Chairman of PCB Ijaz Butt is present in his office no positive step for the welfare of the cricketers could be taken.
He said that Ijaz Butt is the close friend of President Asif Ali Zardari that is why he is not being removed from the post; instead of the fact that well fare of the cricketers and Ijaz Butt could not continue working side by side.
Syed Munawar Hassan said that fingers are being point out on Ijaz Butt for his involvement in alleged corruption in PCB.
He said that there is a lot of money in cricket; that is why it is believed that the high ups also get their share of corruption.
He congratulated the cricket team for winning one-day and test series against New Zealand.
He said that there should be a Constitution of the PCB, adding that without the rules and regulations improvement in the performance of the team could not be made.
He said that there is a rich talent of cricket present in the country but the regional cricket is not present in the country, adding that the responsibility of this fat also lies on the administration of PCB.
He asked the PCB to work for the promotion of regional cricket in the country, adding that due to some reasons Pakistan was excluded from hosting the upcoming world cup.
He said that India, Siri Lanka and Bangladesh are going to host the world cup and it is the history of the cricket world cup that no host country had won the world cup, adding that due to this fact the chances of Pakistan for winning the next world cup are bright.
