PCB announces conditional support to ICC

KARACHI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Thursday announced its conditional support to the revised International Cricket Cricket (ICC) resolutions regarding future governance structure and financial model approved previously by all members.

“PCB, thereby ending PCB’s isolation within the international community and opening the doors to International Cricket in a vital manner. The conditions are signing of mutually beneficial bilateral cricket tours from 2015-23 with all members, especially India,” PCB said in a statement issued on Thursday.

Commenting on the decision of PCB to conditionally support the resolutions, PCB Chairman Najam Sethi said “We had completed the discussion, consultation and negotiation phase with regard to the revised resolutions.

“It was important for us to get assurances on bilateral cricket with all Boards, especially India, which we have now received. The detailed Future Tour Programms are now being finalized with all, especially India,” he said.

“The fact that the resolutions have been diluted considerably from when these were first presented, and are now unobjectionable encouraged us to support these,” it stated.
