Religious comments by Pakistan opener Ahmed Shehzad to Sri Lanka player Tillakaratne Dilshan after a recent one-day game are being investigated by the Pakistan Cricket Board.  While the players were walking back to the dressing room, Shehzad was caught on camera telling Dilshan, "If you are a non-Muslim and you turn Muslim, no matter whatever you do in your life, straight to heaven." Dilshan's reply was not audible, and Shehzad went on to say, "Then be ready for the fire." PCB general manager media Agha Akbar says Shehzad told the board it was a "personal chat with Dilshan," and the board is still investigating the matter.
