PCB clueless over being denied place in Champions League T20 competitionMay 26th, 2009 - 3:39 pm ICT by ANI
Karachi, May 26 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is clueless as to why it has been discarded from Champions League Twenty20 competition to be held in India in October.
When enquired about Pakistan’s failure to get itself inducted in the multi-million-dollar tournament, all senior officials of the PCB kept on passing the responsibility on each other, and expressed their ignorance about the issue.
When quizzed about the whole issue, the PCB chairman Ijaz Butt said one should contact senior Board officials in Lahore to get more information.
Earlier, the Champions League chief, Lalit Modi had declared that Pakistan would not be able to take part in the seven-nation cricket extravaganza because Pakistan cricketers are prohibited to travel to India due to government restrictions.
“Unfortunately, the Pakistan government won’t give them (the players) clearance to come to India, and since Saturday was our cut-off date, it’s not possible to have a team from Pakistan this year,” Modi had said. (ANI)
