Islamabad:Even as the medical commission finalises its inquiry report on the injuries to Pakistani players, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked team manager Haroon Rashid to submit a detailed report on the conduct of some players, including Shoaib Akhtar, in the recent cricket series against India.

The local media said PCB officials have specifically asked Haroon to submit a report as the Board wants his views in writing on the conduct of certain players particularly fast bowler Shoaib, who has been under the microscope ever since he limped off the field on the second day of the third Test in Rawalpindi.

Haroon has confirmed that he would be sending a detailed report to the Board in a week.

"I think they just want the manager's detailed views on a number of issues which is why I have been asked to give the report," he was quoted as saying by the The News daily.

The PCB usually does not seek reports from the manager on a home series but in the case of the series against India, the Board has apparently changed its mind, the newspaper said.

The decision to seek the report from Haroon was taken after meetings between PCB chief Shaharyar Khan and chief executive Rameez Raja with team officials and players.

There were questions raised about Shoaib's commitment and injuries, following which the Board formed a four-member medical commission to find out the exact nature of his injuries and suggest remedial measures for the future.
