PCB Chair Ashraf Believes There Is Conspiracy To Keep Pakistan Cricket Isolated
Pakistan Cricket Board Chair Zaka Ashraf believes that there are elements who do not want to see the revival of int'l cricket in Pakistan and "neither do they want the Super League Twenty20 tournament to be held on time," according to the PTI. Ashraf said, "I am aware there is a conspiracy to keep Pakistan isolated in the cricket world. But we have not given up hope, and we are confident we can organize the super league T20 and also this will lead to revival of international cricket in Pakistan." Without elaborating who these people were who wanted to keep Pakistan cricket isolated internationally, Ashraf said that arrangements for the super league "were continuing at full steam." Ashraf said, "I know there are people who are pessimists and who don't believe that the PSL can be held nor do they see the revival of international cricket in our country. But the PCB has not given up hope and is neither dejected" (PTI, 2/5).
