Pakistan To Host World XI, Cricket Board Supports But Denies Responsibility
Published October 17, 2012
PCB DISTANCES ITSELF: The PTI added the Pakistan Cricket Board "has distanced itself" from the two Twenty20 matches being played between the World XI and Pakistan Stars XI. Although the PCB did say that it supports the matches, it also "made it clear that foolproof security, anti-corruption measures, marketing and broadcasting of the matches remained the responsibility of the organisers." The PCB said that it "wished all success to Shah" and pointed out that it had "released players to participate in the matches" (PTI, 10/16).
