Karachi: Director General Sports Punjab Usman Anwar has said that if Indian authorities conduct impartial investigation into Kabaddi World Cup final, then Pakistan could still get its hand on the World Cup Trophy since they were only beaten in the final due to bias decisions of umpire.
He said Pakistan had requested Indian kabaddi authorities to appoint neutral umpires in the Kabaddi World Cup before the start of mega event.
“The entire world has witnessed the negative tactics of Indian umpires during the Kabaddi World Cup title clash. But Chief Minister of Indian Punjab Parkash Singh Badal, after our protest, has assured us that Pakistan would be awarded the World Cup if the biased approach of Indian umpires proved in the investigation of Review Committee,” he said.
Usman, who was present during the Kabaddi World Cup in India, said that the biased umpires gave as many as 13 decisions against Pakistan due to which our team lost the final by a narrow margin.
“Our team demonstrated wonderful game in the final and their domination throughout the match was witnessed by all the media,” he said.
“Badal also lauded the performance of Pakistan team in the final and said that the Review Committee will follow the merit while making its decision,” he added.
He further said that Pakistan kabaddi team will never feature in any Indian event if India failed to bring impartiality in their decisions.
