BCB chief denies committing to Pak tour in return for PCB support for ICC candidacy

Karachi, Sat, 21 Apr 2012 ANI

Karachi, Apr 21(ANI): Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) President Mustafa Kamal has denied that he had committed to the country's tour of Pakistan in return for the Pakistan Cricket Board's support of his candidature for vice-presidency in the International Cricket Council (ICC).

"No that is absolutely incorrect. I can't get the vice-presidency with Pakistan's support only. I need endorsements from at least 7 of 10 full members of the ICC to acquire the important office," Kamal was quoted as saying.

His statement came after a Bangladesh High Court issued a stay order on the country's tour to Pakistan that led to the postponement of the tour due to security reasons, The Dawn reports.

According to the petition filed in the Dhaka High Court, Kamal had committed to the tour without the permission of the relevant authorities.

Kamal said both cricket boards are striving to achieve bilateral co-operation.

"PCB and BCB are striving hard for the betterment of cricket in the region, and I hope the bilateral cooperation will continue," he added.

Bangladesh was scheduled to play one One Day match and one Twenty20 matches in Lahore at the end of April. However, the tour was postponed after Dhaka High Court issued a stay order due to which the BCB postponed the trip. (ANI)
