“The Board Members deliberated and expressed serious concerns on the model proposed by BCCI, ECB and CA”
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have announced that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Australia’s revamp proposals are “neither in line with principle of equity nor in the interest of game of cricket”.
The PCB decided to strongly oppose the Big Three’s proposals at a governing board meeting, which was hosted by the board’s chairman, Zaka Ashraf.
“The Board Members deliberated and expressed serious concerns on the model proposed by BCCI, ECB and CA which was neither in line with principle of equity nor in the interest of game of cricket,” a PCB press release said. “The Board has reiterated the position that Chairman PCB request audience with the Patron of PCB, H.E the Prime Minister to apprise him on this matter of immense significance and of national interest which will have wide reaching impact on future of cricket in Pakistan.”
The PCB added that they wanted all decisions made by the Big Three to be approved by a majority of the other nations.
“The Board appreciated and supported the stance taken by Chairman PCB at the last ICC Board meeting at Dubai,” the press release said. “The Board authorised Chairman PCB Mr. Zaka Ashraf and COO Mr. Subhan Ahmad to engage with other Board members to align the common position and take other requisite remedial measures in the interest of cricket in Pakistan.”
