ICC hopeful of international revival in Pakistan: David Richardson


LAHORE: International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Officer, David Richardson announced the possibility of ICC tournaments being organised in Pakistan in the near future.
Speaking at a press conference along with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi, Richardson said: “If things go like this then ICC events can be played in Pakistan.”
The ICC chief said security teams are satisfied with arrangements in Lahore, adding that the security situation in Pakistan has improved. “PCB, Pakistan’s security agencies deserve praise,” he said.
“I think the next step is to grow and improve the capability in cities outside Lahore and build the confidence in teams like Australia and England to visit Pakistan, in fact, all the cricket teams.” the ICC CEO said.
Responding to a question, Richardson said it is a wrong perception that ICC favours India more than Pakistan.
“India is a very powerful cricketing country so it has a very strong voice at the ICC. But the fact remains that we have 12 members, and India doesn’t have any more voice than any other member.”
