BCCI plays safe on World XI games
Acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary wants to wait for the selection of the squad before commenting on whether an Indian player will play
Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) acting secretary, Amitabh Chaudhury, after the SGM on Monday said that BCCI will wait till the selection for World XI to Pakistan to decide about the availability of the Indian players.
“We should wait until the selection of the World XI players because if it clashes with any of India’s scheduled series then the players will not be up for selection anyway,” said Chaudhury.
International Cricket Council (ICC), on June 24, confirmed that plans are on for World XI to tour Pakistan; bringing back the cricket in the Asian country after almost a decade.
The ICC board said it had agreed to support a three-game Twenty20 series between Pakistan and a World XI in September, in a bid to help revive international cricket in the country.
All the matches would take place in Lahore and be accorded full Twenty20 international status, the ICC said, adding "further details will be announced in due course."
After Pakistan's stunning 180-run win over arch-rivals India in the final of the one-day international Champions Trophy tournament at The Oval last week, coach Mickey Arthur said he hoped the visit of the World XI would go ahead.
"We're scheduled to have a World XI in Pakistan in September for three Twenty20 games," he said.
"So hopefully that starts paving the way for future tours. We can only hope."
Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed added: "I hope this win will boost Pakistan cricket and all the (major) playing nations will come to Pakistan.
