PCB head Shahryar Khan wants BCCI to encourage 'democracy' in ICC's functioning
Newly appointed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar M. Khan wants India to help the International Cricket Council (ICC) to adapt 'democracy' in its functioning after being forced to let the BCCI have the control of the governing body along with England and Australia.
Khan said that India and Pakistan have already agreed on playing each other regularly from next year. He added that Pakistan was the last one to accept the ICC revamp formula and that is how it is, The Dawn reported.
The PCB chief said that India deserves to have a special status in the current scenario and he hopes they look after the interest of Pakistan cricket.
The 80-year-old career diplomat also said that all members should have equal rights in the ICC, in light of the 'big three' controlling the game. He said that there has to be a democratic set-up, and added that India's clout in international cricket is justified but he hopes they do all what is required to promote democracy in the system.
The man, who played a vital role in turning India's historic tour of Pakistan in 2004 into a reality, wishes that the PCB could host its neighbour in his tenure.
Khan said that most in the cricketing world believe India-Pakistan series is even bigger than the Ashes and therefore it should happen frequently.
