“The day I had started working on the proposal by CSA, the court suspended me and the IMC [Interim Management Committee], so the idea could not materialise”

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have revealed that they have scrapped their plans to send the national team to South Africa when their ongoing series against the Proteas concludes on November 15.

The PCB attributed the scrapping of the series to the ongoing legal existential crisis, which has seen the board’s chairman, Najam Sethi, suspended by the Islamabad High Court.

The series was scheduled to last no more than two weeks.

Sethi revealed that Cricket South Africa had offered to pay the PCB US$1.5 million if they agreed to go ahead with the short tour.

“CSA [Cricket South Africa] had offered us to play a short series in South Africa,” Sethi told Geo News. “But due to the ongoing legal crisis in the PCB, we cannot extend discussions with them.

“The day I had started working on the proposal by CSA, the court suspended me and the IMC [Interim Management Committee], so the idea could not materialise.”
