ACC said PCB received email details for 2023-24 event

The Asian Cricket Council (ACC) has announced that PCB Chairman Mr Najam Sethi has announced that ACC Chairman and BCCI Secretary Mr Jay Shah will be accredited for his ACC’s events in 2023 and 2024 without informing the Pakistani Board of Directors. dismissed claims that it had “unilaterally” released the calendar for

On Thursday, Shah provided details of all his ACC conventions for the next two years as his ACC president. “@ACCMedia1 pass structure and he presents 2023 and his 2024 cricket calendar!” he tweeted. “This shows unprecedented effort and passion to take the game to new heights. There is no doubt that it will be a good time for cricket as cricketers across the country prepare for a spectacular performance. .”

Sethi quoted some of Shah’s quips later on Thursday.
“We would like to thank Jay Shah for his one-page presentation of the ACC structure and calendar for 2023-24, especially in relation to the 2023 Asian Cup hosted by Pakistan. At the same time, we can also present the structure and calendar of PSL 2023. I would appreciate a quick response. ”

A day later, the ACC issued a statement that PCB said he had emailed these details on December 22, 2022, but received no response.

“We are aware that PCB Chairman Najam Sethi has commented that the ACC Chairman has unilaterally finalized and announced the calendar,” read the ACC statement. “ACC would like to clarify that it is following established due process. The calendar was approved by the Development Committee and Finance and Marketing Committee at their December 13, 2022 meeting.

“The calendar was then shared individually with all participating members, including the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), via email dated 22 December 2022. While responses were received from certain Member Boards, no comments or suggested modifications were received from PCB. In view of the above, Mr. Sethi’s comments on a social media platform are baseless and are vehemently denied by the ACC.”

The ACC’s Development Committee and Finance & Marketing Committee – the bodies that approved the ACC pathway structure and calendar – do not contain any representation from Pakistan. And the day the mail was sent to the PCB – December 22 – was a day of considerable tumult in Pakistan cricket:
Sethi replaced Ramiz Raja as head of the board that very day.

Speaking to Sports Tak, Sethi insisted the PCB had not received that communication, or that he had not been made aware of it. “I am not angry, I am confused,” he said. “You could have called us and consulted. If you have any advice, it’s not good to do these things unilaterally. As far as I know, they haven’t consulted anyone.” Does that mean that when I become president, will you be making these decisions from home as well?”

In fact, Sethi reveals that Faisal Hasnain, the CEO of PCB (although that position does not exist in the current government), contacted his BCCI several times to set up a meeting, but received no response. Did. He also advocated keeping politics out of cricket relations between the two countries.

“On the one hand you say you want Pakistan to come to India for the World Cup, but you also say you don’t want to play in Pakistan for the Asian Cup. The Champions Trophy will be held in Pakistan. When (February 2025) won’t they play it too?We should keep politics out of it.BCCI is an independent committee.Our board is not independent.We is a government agency, so we always have to take advice from them. “Of course I say that this tournament should be held in Pakistan. All the countries came to Pakistan.No problem now.No security problem now. we consult the government.

This is just the latest example of how relations between the two countries have deteriorated as a result of deteriorating political relations between the two countries. India and Pakistan have not faced each other in a bilateral series since Pakistan toured India in a limited series of overs in 2012-13. Their encounters have been limited to ICC and ACC events, and while the Indian men’s team has not played in Pakistan since 2008, Pakistan recently visited India for the 2016 T20 World Cup. rice field.
