The controversy arose after Qadir alleged that Inzamam had made a call to Pakistan U19 chief selector Basit Ali to push for the inclusion of his son in the team.
Following the allegations by the former Pakistan leg-spinner, Inzamam took to Twitter to refute them on Tuesday.
In a video message posted on the social media site, the Pakistan selection chief said: “I strongly refute this unfounded and malicious claim.”
I strongly refute this unfounded and malicious claim. For the record, no one from junior selection committee was approached and there is no truth in this. I am taking this matter quite seriously and will be meeting PCB chair for an open enquiry on this matter tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/dr4ExRKoIj— Inzamam ul Haq (@InziTheLegend) September 11, 2018
“For the record, no one from the junior selection committee was approached and there is no truth in this. I am taking this matter quite seriously and will be meeting PCB chair for an open enquiry on this matter tomorrow.”
The allegations had also been denied by the Pakistan U19 team’s selection chief Basit Ali.
“I would like to request the PCB to take legal action against those who are spreading such rumours,” he said.
According to a report by ESPNCricinfo, the meeting between the PCB chief and Inzamam took place on Thursday upon the latter’s request. In the meeting, the PCB chief is understood to have assured the chief selector over his complete support and backing with regards to the allegations.
