KARACHI: Former Test fast bowler Ata-ur-Rehman has said that Najam Sethi accused him of being Imran Khan’s lobby man and did not allow him to work when he went back to England because of him.
In an interview, Atta-ur-Rehman said that former chairman Najam Sethi disappointed me a lot. He used to call me to his office and sit me for hours and tell me to do your job and then stop my file.
Although I wanted Pakistan to serve cricket, Najam Sethi used to say that this is Imran Khan’s lobby man. Let him go around like this. He said that I have never done fixing. The ICC cleared me and I have also worked with the PCB many times.
Atta-ur-Rehman claimed that Babar Azam, Umar Siddique and Salman Qadir were his discoveries, and their potential was assessed at the junior level.
Najam Sethi denied Ata-ur-Rehman’s allegations
On the other hand, Najam Sethi has denied the allegations of Ata-ur-Rehman. He said that I did not even know him. I met him twice in the office parking lot where he was waiting for me and asking for a job.
There was no job for him so he didn’t give it, I don’t even know that he is Imran Khan’s friend.
