PCB extends conditional support to Big Three Proposal
DUBAI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced conditional support to Big Three proposal on Thursday, ARY News reported.
According to sources, PCB has extended its support to ICC revamp after signing agreement to play bilateral series with all member countries from the year 2015-2023.
“Pakistan having a chance to play bilateral series with all member countries especially with India is heartening”, said Chairman PCB Najam Sethi.
Najam Sethi further informed the structure of future tour programme has been finalized.
Till date, PCB was the only Full Member, who had not extended its support to the governance, finance and FTP changes in the ICC, which were proposed by the Board of Cricket India (BCCI), the England Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket Australia (CA) in February.
When the changes, which increase the power of those three boards within the ICC, were first proposed, four Full Members had come out against them: the PCB, the Bangladesh Cricket Board, Cricket South Africa (CSA) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).
The proposals have since been revised and were approved by eight of the Full Members on February 8.
SLC and the PCB were the only two to vote against it at that meeting, and SLC extended its support to the revamp 10 days later.
