Lahore: Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ejaz Butt on Thursday accused ICC Match Referee Chris Broad of making “fabricated, untrue and obnoxious” remarks about the security arrangements for the Sri Lanka team and said they would lodge a complaint with the game’s world governing body.

“What he has said about the security is untrue and fabricated. Broad has made obnoxious comments,” Butt told reporters here. Broad said on Wednesday that lack of adequate security made them feel like “sitting ducks” during the attack.

Butt also said the Board would “lodge a complaint with the ICC” regarding Broad’s comments and added that two investigations were being carried out to find out if security had been lax for the visiting players and officials.

Butt also insisted security provided to the Sri Lankans was the same as was accorded to them during the ODI series in January. — PTI
