Pakistan Cricket Board has suspended former fast bowler and Southern Punjab coach Nadeem Iqbal.
His suspension was prompted by allegations of sexual harassment, according to a foreign website, which is also under police investigation.
Nadeem Iqbal hails from Vehari area of former fast bowler and captain Waqar Younis and both played domestic cricket together in the 80’s and 90’s. It was said at that time that Nadeem Iqbal is a better bowler than Waqar Younis because He had the skill to swing the new ball in and out but he never made it to the Pakistani team.
Nadeem Iqbal retired from cricket in March 2004. In his domestic career, he played 80 matches in which he took 258 wickets while in 65 matches played in List A he took 49 wickets. Nadeem Iqbal was appointed as the coach of Southern Punjab by the former Cricket Board administration. Despite being on the payroll of Pakistan Cricket Board, Nadeem Iqbal has never participated in various coaching programs organized by the board for the last several years.
