Haider to reveal names of corrupt

November 28, 2010 20:43 IST

In what could bring more trouble for Pakistan cricket, stumper Zulqarnain Haider on Sunday said he will reveal the identity of the people, who took bribes while being the country's cricket set-up.

Haider had fled to London after allegedly receiving death threats from match-fixers when he was in Dubai for an One-day International series against South Africa.

Haider is apparently miffed by negative remarks about him by Pakistan's one-day captain Shahid Afridi, manager Intikhab Alam and the PCB legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi.

He wrote on his Facebook page that all those who were talking negative about him should wait for five more days and he will expose them.

Zulqarnain had earlier on his MSM page declared he would soon be in Islamabad.

"I will soon let the people know the background of some people and about those who take or had taken money," he wrote on the social-networking site.

HaiderZulqarnain is facing an inquiry from the PCB, which is clearly unhappy with his act of leaving the team without informing the team management during the series in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The wicketkeeper has claimed he took the extreme decision because he was under threat from some people who wanted him to get involved in fixing matches but he refused the offer.

Alam, who heads a three member PCB fact-finding committee to look into the circumstances leading to Zulqarnain's flight from Dubai, is due to submit his report by Monday.

He told the media on Saturday that although Pakistan had a good series with South Africa but the Haider incident was a big shock for everyone and came out of the blue.

"It was something that had never happened before and my contention is that even if he had got threats he should have at least spoken to us and sought our guidance and help," Intikhab said.
