Ex- chairman PCB Zaka Ashraf has said that Pakistan had received threats from BCCI for resisting the Big 3 plan. Zaka Ashraf was addressing a meeting in Lahore on Sunday. He said that the plan of the Big 3 was made by BCCI who threatened him for opposing it.
The ICC board had approved a wide-ranging and controversial shake-up of its governance and structure on Feb. 8, successfully placing India, England and Australia in charge of the sport. In the revamped ICC, India – which provides 80% of worldwide earnings – and fellow powerhouses England and Australia will have permanent seats on a new, five-member executive board.
Sri Lanka, Pakistan and South Africa had all opposed the revamp when it was discussed last month, but South Africa’s Chris Nenzani had voted in support at the gathering. Sri Lanka and Pakistan abstained. Zaka Ashraf said that initially 5 countries opposed the plan for which India called Pakistan responsible for that opposition.
