Highlight Story

Pakistan Cricket Board chief Ejaz Butt was asked to retire by Parliamentary Committee chairman Jamshed Khan Dasti during a hearing on cricket affairs at the Parliament house.

In an interesting exchange of words between Butt and the Chairman of the parliamentary committee, Jamshed Khan Dasti, the former was reminded that even for government servants the retirement age was 60 years.

“Butt sahib even government employees retire at 60. How old are you,” Dasti asked Butt.

“I am 70,” replied Butt at the hearing on cricket affairs at the parliament house.

“I think enough is enough. You have done 10-years overtime. You should now retire,” Dasti responded to the PCB chief’s remarks who retorted: “Yes but even at this age the national team won the T20 World Cup recently under my chairmanship.”

Dasti replied that for this achievement the committee had already congratulated him.

“But then tell us what happened in Sri Lanka to the team’s performance where our players could not even manage 70 runs, as Chairman of the board are you not responsible?” Dasti asked Butt.
