‘Too much money damaging’

Karachi: Former Pakistan captain and legendary batsman Zaheer Abbas has stressed that money should not be the dominating factor in the running of world cricket.

Speaking on International Cricket Council’s structural revamp, Zaheer said: “I don’t want to go into the nitty-gritty of what these changes will mean for world cricket, but I know one thing that money should not be the main factor in the running of world cricket. Too much money will eventually damage world cricket.”

Meanwhile, another former captain Ramiz Raja, who had supported ICC’s revamp process initiated by the India, Australia and England, feels that PCB might just have missed out on extracting its own share of pie which would have benefited Pakistan cricket.

“I don’t know, but perhaps Pakistan might have missed out on a lot of achievements and concessions they could have got out of this issue.

“These changes are not surprising to me as I had earlier said that these were coming. Our cricket Board should have looked after its own interests,” Ramiz said. (PTI)
