Pakistan team manager says newspaper published report 'is a fake'

Fakir Aizazuddin, Manager of the Pakistan Cricket team which recently toured New Zealand has issued the following statement:

"On my return from New Zealand this evening, I have been told of a report supposed to have been written by me and sent to the Board published by an English Daily - The Dawn. I have neither written the official tour report yet, nor sent to the Cricket Board and therefore the report published by the newspaper is a fake".
