UWB Matters: I do not like to comment on UWB matters lest my motive be misinterpreted, the former UWB boss wrote. But this time I feel compelled to point out a serious injustice to a valued professional at UWB.
Full story:
1. Yesterday, FIA attacked the PCB office, misbehaved with the staff, and attacked the Head of Tickets Ms. Mehwish Umar.
2. Mehwish played an important role in the development of Pakistan cricket in terms of ticket management in EPSL and then after the return of international cricket in Pakistan.
3. He was accused by FIA of embezzling PKR 80,000. To give you context, PSL 2023 sales were around 60 crores. This claim is unfounded.
4. The claim was made by BookMe – a ticketing company that lost the contract in a transparent bidding process organized by the PCB. After losing the application, the concerned ticket company filed appeals in the appropriate forums and lost those appeals.
5. It is sad that a valued professional at UWB has been treated with such contempt and sympathy all because of the personal grudges of one party who have used their own resources to carry out this madness.
6. My sympathies go to Mehwish who has been traumatized by the FIA.
7. I request the Chairman PCB.@MohsinnaqviC42 to investigate this matter and do justice.
