PCB urged to oppose ‘Big Three’

Karachi: The Pakistan Cricket Board has been told by its governing board to strongly oppose the changes proposed by India, Australia and England cricket boards in the governance and distribution of finances in the International Cricket Council.

PCB chief Zaka Ashraf told reporters after the meeting of the governing board that the members had been given a detailed presentation about the proposed changes. They were clear about the line of action to be adopted by Pakistan at the next ICC meeting in Singapore on February 8.

“The members have also suggested that I should meet the prime minister (Nawaz Sharif), who is the chief patron of the PCB, and seek his advice,” Ashraf said.

“There has been some softening in the stance of the Indian, Australian and English boards on the proposed draft paper but obviously we will only take decisions which are in the best interest of Pakistan cricket,” he added.

He said Pakistan would not waver from its principal stance on the proposed revamp of world cricket.
