Lahore, Oct. 23 (ANI): A Pakistan court has charged former Test batsman Ijaz Ahmad in a forgery case, which has its origins in 2009.
Ijaz, while serving as Pakistan's national fielding coach in 2009, was arrested following a police complaint by a businessman for forging a cheque. Ijaz spent six weeks in jail before being released on bail, reports the Daily Times.
The court hasn't issued an arrest warrant and adjourned the hearing until November 10, ordering the prosecution witnesses to appear in court.
Magistrate Imtiaz Ahmed said Ijaz was on bail and was facing a trial with respect to issuing false cheques worth Rs 10 million.
Ijaz, 44, played 60 Tests and 250 ODIs and was a member of the Pakistan team that won the 1992 World Cup. He was earlier on the selection committee and is currently the fielding coach at the National Cricket Academy. (ANI)
