Jammu, March 28 (IANS) Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, an avid cricket fan, said that it was “sad” that the Pakistani cricket team had to be publicly warned by the country’s interior minister not to indulge in match-fixing ahead of their semifinal clash against India.
“This is my page not the CM of J&K’s. Retweets don’t have to mean I agree they just mean something interested me. This shouldn’t be tough to understand :-),” he posted on microblogging site Twitter.
“It’s a sad day for cricket in Pakistan when a team has to be publicly warned by their Interior Minister not to fix the semifinal match,” he tweeted.
Rehman Malik warned the Pakistani cricket team Sunday that their telephone calls and visitors were being monitored and that Pakistan had faced great embarrassment when a spot-fixing scandal had surfaced in England last year.
“If I was in the Pak cricket team, I’d tell the Interior Minister just where to keep his advice/warning. Which is to himself or at least not in the public domain like this,” Omar tweeted.
