But PCB chief Ramiz Raja said: "The commission has not been constituted to find a scapegoat and punish him."Shoaib has rubbished the charges and said he had a torn ligament in his back which prevented him from bowling in the final Test.The four-man commission will also look into the injuries of Moin Khan, Abdul Razzaq, Shabbir Ahmed and Umar Gul.The medical commission is expected to submit its report to the PCB by next week.If found guilty, Shoaib could face a ban and a fine.
Ramiz added: "It has been constituted to find why so many players got injured and what can be done in future to prevent this.
"The other objective is to help the players get their names cleared from the general perception that they faked their injuries, if they were genuinely injured."
"But while saying this, I must make myself very clear that if it was proved some players did fake their injuries, they will be taken to task."

Directions for Questions 31-35:
Read the passage and answer the questions that follow on the basis of the information provided in the passage.
Common Gateway Interface
The Common Gateway Interface, or CGI, is a standard interface between an HTTP server and an application. CGI enables the webserverto generate dynamic content rather than just return static HTML files. In addition, because CGI can accept and process information submitted by the user, it can provide two-way interaction between the client and the web-server. For example, CGI is commonly used to create dynamic HTML pages from information in a database, or to process user input such as validating a creditcard when a product is ordered online. Many popular internet search engines use CGI. These engines receive search criteria from theuser, process the input, and return the search results. CGI was the first and continues to be the most popular method of buildingdynamic Web sites.
Typically, CGI scripts are written in Perl, Tcl, C or a Unix shell, but almost any language can be used, including Java. A CGIapplication works in the following manner. When the web-server receives a request that maps to a CGI application, it executes a CGIprogram that runs in its own process space. The CGI program returns HTML to the web-server, and the web-server returns the
HTML to the client. To illustrate, a typical CGI transaction might go like this:
1) The server receives a request for a resource called /cgi-bin/guestbook.cgi.
2) Either because the file has a .cgi extension or because it is located in the /cgi-bin directory, the server recognizes the file as a CGI request and launches the guestbook.cgi program, passing any parameters received from the client.
3) The guestbook.cgi program executes, processing any information passed as a parameter, and returns an HTML document to theweb-server.
4) The web-server returns the HTML to the client.
To the user, this process is completely transparent. The user simply requested a resource using a URL and received an HTMLdocument in return. Other than the format of the URL, the user would have no way of knowing that the document was created dynamically on the server rather than simply stored in a static file. Using this process, the web-server can vary its response based on user input. Prior to CGI, this kind of two-way interaction on the web was not possible.
One important note is that all CGI applications run as independent processes. Creating a new process for every CGI request hurts performance and is resource intensive. This is in contrast to ’servlets’ that are loaded just once and thereby perform better.
31) CGI revolutionized the Internet because:
i) Static HTML pages automatically became dynamic.
ii) It provided a two-way interaction between the client and the server.
iii) One could think beyond static HTML pages.
iv) Web-servers were no longer required.
A) ii only B) iv and i C) ii and iii D) iii only
32) Before the advent of CGI:
A) Credit cards were invalid. B) Internet search engines could not exist.
C) Since pages were static, they could not contain images. D) Perl, Tcl, C or a Unix shell were never used.
33) All CGI applications run as independent processes causing:
A) Lower performance and optimal utilisation of resources.
B) Enhanced performance and non-optimal utilisation of resources.
C) Enhanced performance and optimal utilisation of resources.
D) Lower performance and non-optimal utilisation of resources.
34) CGI made validation of credit cards possible because:
A) The browser client could pass the credit card number to the server.
B) Credit card companies accepted the feasibility of online systems.
C) It is a standard interface between an HTTP server and an application.
D) Internet became more secure and reliable.
35) If you are given the task of creating an online web application using CGI, you will definitely need to:
i) Create guestbook.cgi.
ii) Build dynamic HTML pages by making database requests.
iii) Write CGI scripts in a language such as Perl, Tcl, C, Unix Shell, Java etc.
iv) Channel client requests through the web-server.
A) iii and iv B) i, iii and iv C) Only iii D) ii and iii
