Desperate PCB for Champion’s Trophy

Written by Commoner on July 24th, 2008   (265 views)

Niranjan Shah, the BCCI secretary has said in a remarkable statement that India sees no problem in hosting the Champion’s Trophy, and there is not much serious problem of security of Pakistan, and it would be good for cricket to have such a resilient attitude to play in not so cozy environment, and it would only add to the flair and the thrill of the game.

Tony Irish, the chief executive of the South Africa Cricketers’ Association (SACA) is hoping now publicly that International Cricket Council would surely move the venue from Pakistan to South Africa, and he has also said that many players from South Africa are not willing to go to Pakistan for the prestigious tournament.

Whereas Pakistan Cricket Board is pulling every string to win the tournament. Shafqat Naghmi of PCB is sure that Pakistan will be retained as the event’s venue following today’s teleconference among the representatives of the ten Test-playing nations in Dubai. A 7-3 vote is needed for the relocation of the Champions Trophy, which would become impossible if the so-called Asia bloc that also includes Sri Lanka and Bangladesh support Pakistan.

There is fifty fifty chance that Pakistan would get or not get the tournament.
