Islamabad, July 17 (ANI): The International Cricket Council (ICC) has appointed former England captain Mike Brearley and ex-Australian skipper Greg Chappell as ambassadors to help the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) at a time when it is struggling to host foreign teams in the country.

ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said Brearley and Chappell have been given the responsibility to work with the international cricket community and help the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) amidst the crisis.

“I am personally delighted that we have men of the stature of Mike Brearley and Greg Chappell working with the ICC and playing an ambassadorial role in support of Pakistan cricket,” a statement issued by the ICC quoted Lorgat, as saying.

“It is vitally important for the global game that Pakistan continues to compete at the highest levels. We are grateful to members of the ICC Pakistan task team who have worked extremely hard, under the leadership of ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) chairman Giles Clarke, to ensure they are able to play at international level,” Lorgat said.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has suffered huge losses as foreign teams have refused to tour the country following the brazen terror attack on the visiting Sri Lankan team in Lahore in March 2009. (ANI)
