The war of words between the Pakistan Cricket Board and the National Assembly's Standing committee on sports has intensified with PCB chief Ejaz Butt saying that committee chairman Jamshed Dasti was trying to destroy cricket in the country.
"I would ask the chief patron, President Asif Zardari to take notice of the negative role Jamshed Dasti is playing in trying to damage Pakistan cricket," Butt told 'Express' news channel from Dhaka.
The fresh row between the two has broken out after Dasti used some disparaging language against Butt after a hearing of the committee yesterday in which the PCB chief was not present.
Dasti said the committee had recommended to Zardari that Butt be removed immediately. He also described Butt as mentally and physically unfit to head the board.
"If I had my way Butt would be in jail," Dasti told the media while describing the PCB as the hub of corruption.
Butt retorted by saying that Dasti's comments were unparliamentary.
