In a strong reply to the legal notice sent by Moin Khan, the former Pakistan captain, the PCB has asked him to pay Rs 250 million rupees (approx US$3,210,891) in damages within two weeks.
On September 19, Moin sued the PCB and demanded Rs 100 million (approx US$1.3m) over its claims that he was involved in recruiting batsman Mohammad Yousuf for the ICL. Moin said "false and engineered statements" were made by the PCB that he pressured Yousuf to join the ICL, and that when the agreement was not finalised, Yousuf paid the player's fee back to him.
Taffazul H Rizvi, the PCB's lawyer, sent a legal address to Moin's lawyer Imran Aziz Qureshi alleging that Moin did not pay the full amount to Yousuf while signing a contract with him for the ICL last year. The legal notice rubbishes Moin's claims as "whimsical and capricious" and states Yousuf as having incurred "colossal financial losses due to the said arbitration proceedings pending in India".
