Pakistan’s cricket coach suspended for sexual abuse, once believed to be a better bowler than Waqar Younis


Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suspended one of its national level coach for molesting a female player. A female cricketer accused Multan region coach Nadeem Iqbal of molestation. Nadeem was a renowned fast bowler of his time and made his first-class debut for the same team for which legendary fast bowler Waqar Younis played.

A PCB official confirmed that they have started an investigation into the matter to find out if Nadeem violated the terms of his job with the board. “Obviously we can’t do any criminal investigation that the police have to do, but our investigation will reveal whether he has violated the terms of our contract,” the official said.

The 50-year-old Nadeem has played 80 first-class matches and was once considered a better bowler than Waqar. The victim woman cricketer, in her complaint to the police, has claimed that she had gone to Multan for PCB women’s trials a few years back when Nadeem was one of the many coaches present there.

The victim said in the video message released, ‘He promised to pick me in the women’s team and get a job in the board and came close to me. He kept on sexually abusing me and some of his friends were also involved in this. He also made my video and later blackmailed me.

Earlier in 2014, five young women cricketers accused the officials of a private cricket club in Multan of sexual harassment. Last year, Pakistan’s Test leg-spinner Yasir Shah was also accused of helping his friend sexually assault a young woman and later threatening her. Though the complainant later withdrew the charges against Yasir, the case against his friend is still pending in the court.
