PCB says not answerable to ministry

LAHORE, Nov 03 (NNI): The Pakistan Cricket Board said on Tuesday that the PCB is an autonomous organization and answerable to its Patron, the Prime Minister of Pakistan and its board of governors.

The comments came after the Federal Minister of Inter-Provincial Coordination Mian Riaz Hussain Pirzada took notice of the visit to India by the Chairman PCB Shaharyar M. Khan for negotiations with the BCCI president.

The PCB said the International Cricket Council, the global governing body of the game, is sensitive to government interference in affairs of its member boards.

A statement said both stakeholders have been kept apprised of the developments with regard to the PCB and BCCI matters.

The PCB has always conducted its negotiations with the BCCI and other national cricketing entities independently – with the government at no stage ever preventing it from so doing, it said.
