With the departure of Dr. Nasim Ashraf from the chairmanship of the Pakistan Cricket Board, the government is all set to install an ad-hoc set-up to run national cricket affairs following the resignation of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Nasim Ashraf. Though still there is no confirmation, but it is likely that within couple of days the constitution would be held and the PCB would be given under the control of the ministry of Sports.
While that happens at the fringes, International Cricket Council is also almost all set to either cancel or transfer the Champion’s Trophy from Pakistan. Top players from defending champions Australia have officially refused to tour Pakistan for the 2008 ICC Champions Trophy. Players from South Africa, England and New Zealand have also refused to come to Pakistan.
David Morgan, the president of the International Cricket Council (ICC) is also very apprehensive about the holding of Champion’s Trophy and he is also very much in the favor of shifting the venue from Pakistan, but Haroon Lorgat the chief executive of ICC is still interested in giving the tournament to the Pakistani grounds.
Today it would be finalized.More on:David Morgan, england, Haroon Lorgat, Nasim Ashraf, New Zealand, Pakistan Cricket Board, South Africa
