Pakistan Cricket Board Announces Its Conditional Support To Big Three
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Thursday its conditional support to International Cricket Council (ICC) 'big three' revamp, a plan it strongly opposed before. In a statement released to the media following the conclusion of ICC Board meeting in Dubai, the PCB said it agreed had to the revised ICC resolutions only on the condition that it would get bilateral series with all ICC members from 2015-2023 including India. The detailed Future Tour Programme (DFP) is now being finalized with all especially India, PCB chairman Najam Sethi said in a press release. The press release said that Pakistan is now not alone in the cricketing world. Sethi clarified that Pakistan had decided to change its stance "after the resolutions have been diluted considerably from when these were first presented and are now unobjectionable." According to the chairman PCB will reveal its 'achievements' made during the ICC meeting in a press conference today at 4 PM.
