Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) executive Najam Sethi has asserted Pakistan passed up a great opportunity for the chance to have a real say in the issues of the International Cricket Council (ICC) after Zaka Ashraf assumed control as head from him for a short period.
“The ‘Big 3’ offered us to join in and structure the ‘Big Four’. It is truly heartbreaking that the discussions I began with them were not sought after further by the Pakistan Cricket Board when I wasn’t around,” Sethi said before leaving for Dubai for an ICC meeting.
In February not long from now, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif uprooted Zaka Ashraf as executive of the board, delegating a 11-part trustees, headed by previous between time PCB head Najam Sethi, to run the issues of the PCB.
Islamabad Cricket Association president Shakil Shaikh, who is likewise one of the parts, said Ashraf was uprooted due to “misusing Pakistan’s case in the late changes got the ICC.”
Pakistan avoided the voting in the ICC Board meeting in February in which the three greatest cricketing countries — India, Australia and England — got a greater part of the forces in the game’s administering body, securing 9 votes from the 10 full parts. Sethi said Pakistan were presently left with nothing.
“Right away, nobody is ready to provide for us anything, especially India. Also it was India that had made us that offer. Until and unless we play with India, we won’t profit. In the event that we don’t profit our residential framework will endure. Everybody is toeing India’s line in light of the fact that playing with India profile.
