MUSCAT:Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, who retired from international cricket two years ago, believes that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is largely responsible for the persisting problem of spot-fixing that is plaguing cricket in his country.Speaking exclusively to Muscat Daily on the side-lines of a blood donation drive organised by Super Group of Companies inMuscatover the weekend, Akhtar said: “The main problem withPakistancricket is with the people who run the game there. The problem of spot-fixing was overlooked because we had a huge roster of multi-talented cricketers. The board was getting high on this free supply of talent.”I do believe that people who are competent should have come forward.
