'Big Three' ICC revamp plan not in interest of cricket: PCB
The Pakistan Cricket Board has criticized the International Cricket Council (ICC) plan to hand power to India, Australia and England in the name of reforming the governing body of the game.
A move to restructure the ICC according to 'Big Three' -- India, Australia and England -- wishes was passed in principle during a board meeting in January.
The Pakistan Cricket Board on Monday termed the proposed plan as neither in line with the principle of equity nor in the interest of game of cricket.
Members of the PCB's governing board said in a statement that they had serious concerns over the planned revamp proposed by the cricket boards of India, Australia and England to give their countries a greater say in the running of the game, Sport24 reports.
The PCB said it had asked chairman Zaka Ashraf to seek guidance from Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and to apprise him on this matter of immense significance and of national interest.
The PCB said it had received a detailed presentation on the proposal, which it would discuss at the next ICC board meeting.
