ICL: Indian Cricket League

Some More Blows to PCB

The dates of the second edition of the Twenty20 Champions League, the multi-million dollar event clashes with the International Cricket Council’s decision to hold the Champions Trophy one-day tournament in October 2009. The Champions Trophy, the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) second biggest tournament after the World Cup, was due to be held this month but was canceled by the world body due to security concerns in Pakistan.

Shafqat Naghmi, Pakistan Cricket Board’s chief operating officer, pointed out that the Champions Trophy is an event owned by the International Cricket Council (ICC), and he said that he was sure that ICC would back its official tournament over the private affair and he was confident in this regard.

Another blow came regarding the Sri Lankan series. Pakistan and Sri Lanka are likely to scrap plans to play a bilateral one-day series later this month after broadcasters quoted ‘ridiculously’ low figures to secure television rights for the proposed event.

Geoff Lawson’s future is also in dwindles after chairman Nasim Ashraf resigned on August 18, just hours after the organization’s patron President Pervez Musharraf stepped down as Pakistan leader, and now Geoff has left abruptly for Australia and he isn’t likely to come.
