PCB to review participation in World T20 after getting BCCI’s reply on series: Shahryar

Lahore, Oct.22 (ANI): Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar Khan has said that the PCB will review security situation in India before deciding on the national team’s participation in next year’s World T20.

Khan, who returned home from India after failing to meet the top brass of the BCCI, said that ICC President Zaheer Abbas had raised concerns about players and officials safety in the World T20.

India will host the World T20 in March-April next year.

BCCI officials had cancelled a scheduled meeting with Khan in Mumbai on Tuesday following violent protests by the right-wing Shiv Sena in Mumbai.

Khan said the PCB would be writing to the ICC and the BCCI to register its displeasure over the way the PCB delegation was treated in Mumbai and New Delhi.

He said the pre-scheduled and approved December series between Pakistan and India was important for the future of cricketing ties between the two countries.

Khan said he would wait for a reply from the BCCI until next week and then decide. (ANI)
