Islamabad:In an apparent attempt to convey his displeasure over the way cricket was being managed in Pakistan in the aftermath of the India-Pak cricket series, President Pervez Musharraf reportedly snubbed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan by declining to meet him.

Khan, a former Foreign Secretary, who was appointed for the top post by Musharraf himself earlier this year, was reportedly kept waiting at the President's official residence in Rawalpindi and the PCB chief was told towards the end of the day that the appointment has to be rescheduled for next week.

To scorch rumours, Khan himself said in a press release issued late evening that he would shortly meet Musharraf.

"I have requested for a meeting with President General Musharraf. I am hoping that the meeting will take place in the coming week," Khan said in the statement.

Khan, who lives in Karachi, said he has come to Islamabad to attend a seminar.
