“All the blame has been put on Wasim Khan, and he has been asked to face everything. Who has brought Wasim Khan? Ehsan Mani (brought him). Where is Mani Sahab? Is this the responsibility of Wasim Khan to answer here? Ehsan Mani should give the answer,” stated the 45-year-old.
“No one should have a doubt about PCB’s incompetence. Only Wasim Khan is logical, and he is the only one who wants to help Pakistan cricket… Now, it is the responsibility of Wasim Khan to look after the medical panel. Earlier also, I asked Wasim Khan to change the medical panel so that such a situation does not happen,” concluded the former Pakistan pacer.
