Player:Aamer Sohail, Wasim Bari

DateLine: 19th July 2009


The ever growing rift among the Pakistan Cricket Board officials became all the more clear on Friday evening.


Interim chief selector Wasim Bari moved out of the NCA premises as he was confronted by academy head Aamer Sohail for conducting a fitness test on pacer Shoaib Akhtar without his prior permission. Sources in the board said that Bari, who is the director of human resources, had to leave the NCA premises while conducting a fitness test of fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar.


"Aamer Sohail who is director game planning and development and heads the academy asked Bari and another selector Ejaz Ahmed how they were conducting the fitness test at the academy without his permission," a source said.


The source added that Sohail, a former Test player had laid down tough rules that anyone wanting to use the NCA premises had to first get clearance from the administration there.


"Bari left when confronted by Sohail while Ejaz, who works as coach at the academy also didn't say much as the test was abandoned abruptly," the source said.


Differences between the two have grown recently after Bari issued a notice to Sohail asking him why he did not attend a game developmet course in England although instructed to do so by the board Chairman. Sohail replied saying that he would offer any explanations to the Chairman not him as he was not authorised to send him any notice as both were directors. Sohail has also been indicating off late that he is not happy with the working of the board and might resign from his post as he is not getting along with the other senior officials.
