The legal battle between the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and former cricketer Saleem Malik will continue for a longer period as the PCB has rejected Malik’s answers once more.

Malik had submitted answers to questions posed by the PCB, after the former had reached out to the cricket board to end his ban and grant clearance in the matter, on August 18.

According to a source in the PCB, the board’s legal department is not satisfied with the answers provided by Malik. However, the PCB has granted the former cricketer the right to appeal the matter if he chooses to do so.
