Kapil bats for Imran to save Pak cricket

KOLKATA: With the credibility of Pakistan cricket at its lowest due to the ongoing match-fixing controversy, former India captain Kapil Dev appealed to former Pakistan captain and “one of the cleanest players in the sub-continent”, Imran Khan, to come forward to and save the game in the country.

Kapil Dev, speaking to the media on the sidelines of a chess meet inauguration, appealed to Imran “to take charge of cricket in Pakistan at this juncture.”

He said, “Imran being the cleanest player, it is he who can look after Pakistan cricket. None of us want the game in Pakistan to be finished because it has produced some of the finest cricketers in the world.”

Kapil, however, felt that the players, if found guilty, should not be allowed to go scot free.

He also appealed to the International Cricket Council (ICC) to ensure that the game did not get a bad name because of a few negative characters. “I appeal to the world body to ensure people with right credentials are in charge of the investigation,” he said. — Special Correspondent
