The growing rift among the PCB officials came to the fore when interim chief selector Wasim Bari rushed out of the NCA premises after being confronted by academy head Aamer Sohail for conducting a fitness test on pacer Shoaib Akhtar without his permission.
Sources in the board said that Bari, who is the director of human resources, had to leave the NCA premises on Friday evening while conducting a fitness test of fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar.
"Aamer Sohail who is director game planning and development and heads the academy asked Bari and another selector Ejaz Ahmed how they were conducting the fitness test at the academy without his permission," one source said.
He said Sohail, a former Test captain had laid down stringent rules that anyone wanting to use the NCA premises had to first get clearance from the administration there.
"Bari left when confronted by Sohail while Ejaz, who works as coach at the academy also didn't say much as the test was abandoned abruptly," the source said.
Differences between the two escalated recently when the Bari issued a notice to Sohail asking him to explain as to how he had not gone to England to attend a game development course although instructed to do so by the board Chairman.
