To demonstrate solidarity in view of the enormous tragedy that has befallen the nation, the PCB has decided to postpone today’s Malala Cup final match scheduled at Muridke. The PCB has also postponed the 4th One day match between Pakistan A and Kenya team scheduled for 18th November. The Fourth One Day will now be played on 19th December.
“We tried our best to postpone the 4th ODI but were constrained by the Broadcasters commitment as well as for cricketing reasons advised by New Zealand management”, explained the PCB Spokesman.
“We are playing outside Pakistan only because of the threat of terrorism at home. If we allow terrorists to disrupt our matches abroad, then all will be lost. So we have decided to go ahead with the match and our players will wear black armbands in grief and observe a minute’s silence and flags will be lowered.
“The PCB will donate proceeds of the match to the families of the martyred and towards rebuilding the school.”
