"Najam Sethi had said very loudly after the PCB announced the spot-fixing scandal in the Pakistan Super League that there was concrete and strong evidence against the players to punish them. But so far nothing has happened," Sohail said in an interview.

Sethi, who heads the PCB's executive committee, is also chairman of the PSL and was one who informed the media about the spot-fixing scandal and suspension of players.

"His recordings are present where he said repeatedly the board had enough evidence to take action against the players. If this is not done now he should resign," Sohail said.
