Former fielding coach Steve Rixon has accused the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) of not paying his salary on time.
Rixon stepped down as Pakistan’s fielding coach in June.
“It’s disrespectful and the disrespect came from the fact that nothing was paid on time to the subsidiary staff,” he said. “Whenever something needed to be done, and my contract was one of those things, that took over five months to get clarified,” he said.
“They thought I’d just roll over and accept it right at the eleventh hour but I didn’t do that as I’d basically had enough of it at that stage.”
The former fielding coach said that he enjoys the game and never wanted to finish a job in cricket without enjoying it.
“That’s what probably would have happened if I’d stayed on there,” he said. The former fielding coach said that he was concerned that Pakistan would slip back into its old ways when it comes to the treatment of its players and staff.
Rixon said that the PCB should treat its employees well if it want overseas staff to come and work.
The PCB, however, refuted Rixon’s statements.
“The PCB spokesman wishes to clarify that the board has enjoyed cordial relations with all current and former foreign staff attached with national teams,” said a spokesperson. The cricket board said that it was surprised by the “allegations” made by Rixon.
