    PCB decides to take no legal action against Kamran Akmal

    PCB serves legal notice to Kamran Akmal for his comments on media

    Pakistanís discarded wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal has been served with a legal notice by the Pakistan Cricket Board chairman for allegedly making defamatory and offensive comments on the media.

    A source close to Kamran confirmed that he got a notice from the legal department of the board, served on behalf of chairman Ramiz Raja.
    ďI donít know exactly what charges they have made against Kamran but apparently the legal notice has been sent because the chairman feels Kamran made defamatory, false and offensive comments on the media about him,Ē the source said.

    A source in the cricket board made it clear that more legal notices could be sent to some other former players who have their own Youtube channels and appear regularly on the media for their comments.

    ďSome of them clearly cross the line while criticising the team, management, board and chairman and Ramiz has made it clear he is not going to tolerate anyone running down or defaming Pakistan cricket anymore,Ē the source said.

    He said the PCBís legal team had been told to take immediate action if any comments by any former player on his own YT channel or on television channels is found to be defamatory, offensive, personal, false and damaging to Pakistan cricket.

    Some former players were brutal in their criticism of the Pakistan team when it lost its first two matches in the World Cup and even after they were beaten in the final by England on Sunday.

    Some have also called for a change in the board and team management and some want Babar Azam replaced as captain.

    Not sure what Kami said but some of our former cricketers need action like this. It's one thing to criticize but most of the time there is a malicious agenda against half the selected squad.

    Akmals are always easy targets because they have no clout now

    Go after Wasim, Waqar, Malik, Amir, Wahab

    Why are they going after the easy target only?

    Good from Ramiz. A lot of thrash from former cricketers who have nothing better to do. Some even have their own agendas and do not refrain from bringing PCB down for these.

    Finally! It's frustrating watching every cricket analysis outlet in Pakistan be covered by bias former cricketers who base their opinions on their personal likes and dislikes and hate toward certain players. There's no joy in listening to them as most of what they say is purely off emotions.

    Why listen to them,I don't. Trust your own opinions. I have spent time with ex pros and tbh, I came away feeling that I knew more than them but their status as an ex cricketer gave their opinions credibility.

    Such legal notices reek of insecurity and intolerance. Kamran and others are in no position of power to dictate anything, it makes no difference what they say.

    If you donít like what they just say ignore and move on.

    Good by PCB.

    Legal notice needs to be sent to amir and tamveer ahmad. Would love to see hefty fines be made and if amir doesnt pay up, he can be asked to get out of the psl.

    Seriously, trying to pick up fights with the chairman, amir is risking the no career he has in psl

    Good for PCB but it was quite a sight to watch the faces of all these ex cricketers when Pak made the semis and the finals. I am quite happy with that alone.

    That show with Amir, Wahab and Salim Malik was the most toxic thing I have recently seen on TV. Wahab definitely disappointed me the most as he was pretty decent in last year’s The Pavilion show.

    Expressing his thoughts on the issue, Butt said, "Rehne de ye show? Kahi legal notice na aa jaaye (Should we stop the show? Else we might also get legal notice)."

    But was of the opinion that there is nothing wrong in passing opinions, incase if the person is speaking on the basis of his/her experience. The Pakistani wicketkeeper-batter had represented the country in all the three formats, and has a total of 58 appearances in the shorter format.

    “Speaking about technical aspects, giving your opinion and speaking based on your experience, especially those who have much more of it than policy-makers is fine. You cannot challenge opinions. You can convince people with your explanation, logic and reasoning," added Butt.

    Though Butt requested fans and experts to refrain themselves from making any personal attacks, or not cross the line.

    “There is one more thing here. If we are talking about something, it should not personally hit anyone. We should not cross the line with regards to someone’s personality, looks and personal lives. We have not right to do that. Nor does anyone else have a right to cross the line against us. If someone has done it, people should refrain from such things," the former Pakistan opener stated further.

    Akmals are easy targets tbh and the likes of Amir etc have said much worse stuff about PCB.

    Should serve the notice to Amir rather than Kami.

    Everyone with a YT channel these days says a lot of stuff. Ramiz himself is a YT user. He would have said against PCB in the past as well.

    Ahmed Shehzad despite being a domestically contracted player said way more than others about PCB but he hasn't been served any notice.
