Karachi: Former captain Javed Miandad is yet to respond to a show cause notice that the Pakistan Cricket Board issued to him for violating his terms of employment, raising the prospects of yet another bitter showdown between the two.

The PCB had issued a show cause notice to Miandad after he slammed the Board`s working and claimed that 90 per cent of the decisions taken by the authorities were wrong.

Miandad, who is employed as the Director (cricket affairs) since 2008 on a lucrative package, said after closely watching the working of the board, he was convinced 90 per cent decisions were erroneous.

His remarks upset the PCB which gave him a deadline of seven days to respond to the notice that expired last Thursday.

"So far we have yet to get a formal response from him to the notice but we will look at the issue on Monday," a senior official said.

Miandad, after getting the notice, made it clear that he had no intentions of responding to it as he was directly appointed in the Board by chief patron -- President Asif Zardari -- and was only answerable to him.
