Ahead of taking charge as Pakistan’s chief selector and Pakistan Cricket Board’s anti-corruption head, Rashid Latif has invited former India captain Rahul Dravid to lead the fight against corruption. The former Pakistan captain and ‘keeper has recently been appointed for the dual role and will assume office after the World T20. Latif maintains that corruption is not only his country’s problem, but a global problem. “Such a beautiful game of cricket is now the hub of gambling. The ICC, PCB, BCCI, IPL…They’ve to try to minimise corruption. I think a 30-second delay in live coverage could change a lot of things,” Latif said.
“Former captains and cricketers must stand united in the fight against corruption. Their efforts can make a huge impact. India are a super power in cricket and we need someone from them. Rahul Dravid is the ideal person. I invite him to lead the way,” said Latif.
