The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, Najam Sethi on Friday requested his friends and high-ups to not ask for free tickets and passes for Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches.

“I am making a personal request to all friends and high-ups NOT to ask for free tickets/passes to PSL matches starting next month. The Public Accounts Committee of National Assembly that audits PCB has warned us to desist from this practise,” tweeted Sethi.

“I am also requesting friends and high-ups not to do sifarish for selection of any player or coach, etc, or to give employment or facilitation to any undeserving person. PCB competes with top professional organisations in the world and cannot afford to be inefficient,” he added.
