Pakistan's parliamentary committee has summoned PCB chief Ejaz Butt, captain Younis Khan and coach Intikhab Alam to explain the team's CT show.


A senior parliamentarian, who heads the national assembly standing committee on sports, has accused the team of deliberately losing to Australia in the Champions Trophy in a group match.


"There is evidence that the team lost the match to Australia on purpose. It underperformed. Then against New Zealand also there are signs the team didn't want to win," Dasti alleged.


"We have been told by some respected and senior people and we are also trying to collect evidence that there might have been some hanky panky in the match against Australia and New Zealand," Dasti claimed.


Dasti lashed out at Butt and the team for disappointing the nation.


"I can say we lost to Australia on purpose. And the team's performance against New Zealand was zero. We will get to the bottom of this whole affair and find out the truth the nation must know the truth of what happened in South Africa," he said.


"We want to see changes in the board and Butt must go because as it is he is too old for this job," he added.
