Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja finally spoke about Test cricketer Yasir Shah's case, in which the leg-spinner is accused of being involved in aiding the rape and harassment of a 14-year-old girl, saying that such headlines are not good for Pakistan cricket.

Ramiz, in a press conference on Wednesday, said that Pakistan cricketers should know with whom they should socialize as they are the ambassadors of the game.

"It is a no-brainer, Yasir is a circuit player, and while we train and educate these players they are in ambassadorial positions and should know with whom and where to socialise," he said.

Raja added: ''I don't know what is the truth in this case but it is a fact that such headlines are not good for Pakistan cricket and especially at a time when there is a feel-good factor going through Pakistan cricket now." 

It is important to mention that PCB also released a statement regarding this issue. The statement read: "The PCB is presently gathering information at its end and will only offer a comment when in possession of complete facts."
