ICC Chairman & CEO will Visit Pakistan to Chief Agenda

ICC leaders visit Pakistan, affirming support World Cup participation.

CEO Geoff Allardice and ICC Chairman Greg Barclay will go to Lahore for a two-days of visit. Where they will meet Najam Sethi, the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s management committee, and other PCB executives.

India declined to travel to Pakistan for the Asia Cup. Which will be contested there in September, and neither nation endorsed the hybrid format presented by the PCB, which calls for only four of the tournament’s 13 games to be played there.

The next nine games, including the championship game, will be played in accordance with that proposal in a neutral site.

Although Pakistan is the tournament official host nation, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has not yet approved the PCB plan to hold the competition there. To discuss the Asia Cup informally, the leaders of the boards for India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan will meet during the IPL final in Ahmedabad.

The conversations between India and Pakistan on this issue are still “ongoing”. According to Wasim Khan, the ICC general manager of cricket.

“That is something that is currently ongoing. Greg and Geoff are currently in Pakistan (they arrived Tuesday morning) and are having discussions with the PCB management on a variety of topics, according to Wasim.

The PCB is also most likely to raise its objections to the ICC proposed revenue-distribution scheme at this time. Despite not being completely finished, the model is anticipated to be accepted by June before being formally adopted at the ICC AGM in Durban in July.

Sethi Says:

That unless his board is given additional information about the methodology employed, it cannot approve the model.

The BCCI is anticipated to get 38.5% of the ICC’s annual estimated earnings of US $600 million under the proposed model, while the PCB is anticipated to receive a far smaller part of only 5.75%.
