“We could not support anything that went against our interests and our cricket”
Former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Zaka Ashraf has revealed that he was threatened by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after he opposed their revamp proposal.
The revamp proposal was enforced nonetheless and it means that the BCCI, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Australia will receive a larger share of the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) profits.
“There were threats directed at Pakistan but our stance was clear,” Ashraf said. “In the governance issue obviously our stance was clear and we could not support anything that went against our interests and our cricket.”
