PCB’s claim of being granted ‘Big Four’ status by ICC couldn’t be confirmed as of Thursday night. The matter of India-Pakistan cricket series also appears to be halted.
Earlier, PCB announced through a media release that the ICC has decided to grant 4th rank to Pakistan after the ‘Big Three.’ Pakistan has made very important gains at ICC annual meeting at Melbourne on Thursday, the PCB mentioned in a media release. When Indian Cricket Board was approached to confirm the MoUs, they turned down to comment on the issue, virtually hinting of lack of any breakthrough.
The PCB said the series were agreed in principle in April, but these were turned into a binding deal on the sidelines of an ICC meeting in Melbourne on Thursday.
