PCB suspends one of its coaches for sexual harassment charges

PCB suspends one if its coaches for sexual harassment charges

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suspended Nadeem Iqbal, one of the coaches of its domestic circuit, for sexual harassment allegations. According to the PCB, the inquiry is going on and the matter has been handed over to the police for further investigations.

As revealed by some sources, he targetted a lady during the Women Cricket Trials in Multan and also offered her a job. In fact, back in 2014, a group of cricketers complained about several well-known cricket coaches offering s** to them in exchange for selection in the team.

“He got close to me with promises of selecting me for the women’s team and also getting me employment on the board. But over time he kept on sexually molesting me and also involved his friends. He also had me video taped and later kept on blackmailing me,”

Nadeem, who was appointed Southern’s coach two years back, has not been around teaching programmes conducted by the PCB. As far as his playing career is concerned, he was considered better than Waqar Younis back in time. However, he never became part of international cricket.

The fast bowler has 258 wickets in 80 first-class matches whereas, in 49 List A matches, he took 65 wickets. If assaults against him are proven true, he will suffer a permanent ban from the post.
