Miandad slams 'hasty' ICC decision

Javed Miandad, the PCB's director general, has said he was 'shocked' by the ICC's 'hasty' decision to move the 2011 World Cup out of Pakistan.

"If safety was their concern then the 2011 World Cup should have been given to Australia and New Zealand and the Asian countries could have hosted the 2015 World Cup," he told AFP. His comments came a day after the Pakistan board confirmed that it had lodged an official protest at the ICC's decision.

Pakistan had been stripped of hosting rights for the World Cup, after an ICC meeting last week, because of the "uncertain security situation" in the country. The ICC had also said that Pakistan was unlikely to resume hosting any cricket at all until 2011.

Miandad said the decision reeked of 'double standards'. "We did a wonderful job by staging a safe Test in Karachi but unfortunately things went wrong in Lahore," he said. "The same thing happened in Mumbai, India, but England did not have problems in touring. The cricket world has isolated Pakistan and it's not in the best interest of the game."

Miandad also spoke of a conspiracy to deprive Pakistan of international cricket. "There are some groups with a monopoly and they are playing the game. Today it is Pakistan, tomorrow it could be some other country. I am sad that the Asian countries did not back Pakistan and think that they can also face the same situation one day."

Pakistan are currently playing their 'home' series of limited-overs matches against Australia in the UAE. New Zealand, who were to tour Pakistan later this month, have stated their reluctance to visit the country, and are in discussions to move the series to a different location.


solution: secure ur country, then comments abt other asian countries support. or take example from BD: after army mutiny, we cancelled all foreign tour instead of blaming other asian country.

The problems I see

--Pak (and Miandad) are more unhappy that the WC stayed in the subcontinent than Pak loosing out .

--Almost can see Miandad hoping such an incident happens in other Asian countries.

--Wrong priorities, Pride before practicality.Pak is spiralling down and the administartors instead of addressing the problem are putting a brave face and are trying to cover this up.

--They did not make the same noices when the SL incident happened.No one was fired ..hell the delegation that went to discuss the security of the WC included the same person who was at the top when the SL incident happened !!!


I'd say Pak please smell the coffee , cricket can wait , not having the WC is the least of your problems

If the table was turned, we would say the same thing. Go see KKR and Mumbai IPL threads. So would Indian folks. Calling "Miandad" a Clown is not good. You should see some of the comments our leaders spell out. Heck all subcontinent leaders, heck Bush/Cheney etc. etc. says.

At least he is not a LIAR like our leaders. I'd take Clown over Liars any day.

well he is right..if safety is a concern than the world cup should not be in the sub-continent..lets say that a certain group of people in Pakistan would have made terror attack during the world cup..you think they can't figure out a way to get into India/Bangladesh/Pakistan and do the same thing...who knows what if these guys get mad for not including Pakistan and decide to attack anyway...

don't about him being a liar or not...but Mijan bhai is right.

i'd say the PCB are definite clowns, but the BCCI are pimps, the BCB are kids with down chilren, and the SLC is probably the only sensible board in the subcontinent.

but it is true that any could happen to any country in the SC...india, bd, sl could all go up in flames at a momen'ts notice.

Well anything can happen in any country, but there is no other country that would concede their own soil to a bunch of terrorist. Neither Bangladesh not India is assisting or sponsoring in terrorist activities on its own soil. While countries like bangladesh, India and SL might be vulnerable but the chances of an attack is much less likely. I can feel safe at a market place in BD, SL or Ind but not inside Pakistan. Some people out of jealousy for not being able to host the matches in Pakistan wants to hurt our economy by also removing our rights to host the matches. This suggestion is totally insane. I hope no major decision maker inside ICC feels this way.

Fallout of the Lahore attack
Pakistan board lodges formal complaint against Broad

The Pakistan board has lodged a formal complaint with the ICC over comments made by match referee Chris Broad about the security in Lahore at the time of the terrorist attack last week.
Broad's comments have been endorsed by umpires Simon Taufel and Steve Davis, but they left PCB officials very angry. "I am angry at the Pakistani security forces," Broad told reporters 36 hours after the incident. "We were promised high level security and in our hour of need that security vanished and they left us to be sitting ducks."

The remarks were "unwarranted", PCB chief operating officer, Saleem Altaf, told AFP. "He should have given his reaction in the official match report rather than going public." He added that Ijaz Butt, the PCB chairman, had told the ICC it was "a big lie that there were no policeman".

The ICC is unlikely to take any action until the next executive board meeting in April when a number of those involved, including Broad, are likely to be asked to attend. Butt will also be there in his official capacity



advise: instead of saying all the big words, admit ur failure of giving security and say sorry.

The fact that the attackers continued firing without even any cover but didn't get even any injury. On the other hand they injured players and officials inside the bus. This should tell you the level of security provided and their efforts in detering the attackers.

Pak board is simply lying.

When you are in the mine field; it does little help if you continue thinking you are in the Edens. This is a problem with officials in the sub-continent, be it in India or in Pakistan or in Bangladesh. If there is a problem, they should acknowledge it and try to solve it than doing an Ostrich.

The Mohammad Asif saga

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif is set to begin his rehabilitation in England this summer and possibly play league cricket to work his way back into form and fitness before the Champions Trophy this September. Asif is currently serving a one-year ban after testing positive to the banned substance nandrolone last year.

Salman Ahmed, one of Asif's agents, said they have applied for a work permit which will allow him to train in England for at least four weeks before taking up offers with clubs in Cambridge and Greater Manchester, which have reportedly shown interest in signing him up.

"All the setbacks that have hit him in the last year or so have left Asif really exhausted," Ahmed told the News. "We have prepared a fitness regime for him that will help him recover both mentally and physically.

"We have applied for a work permit which should be ready in about a month's time. Once it's ready, we will work out a contract for him with some club in England."

Asif will have to return home in August to make himself available for selection for the Champions Trophy in South Africa. His ban runs till September 21, 2009, and the tournament begins three days later.

Asif, who already left for London on Tuesday for a two-week stint, will fly to South Africa to watch a few IPL games. He was a member of the Delhi Daredevils team for the first season but the franchise banned him for a year following an internal dope test. He was banned by the PCB as well. He is still embroiled in another controversy after being detained at the Dubai airport last year for possessing opium, a case which the PCB is still investigating.

Mohammad Asif has been barred from entering the UAE after being deported from Dubai last year for possession of an opium substance weighing 0.24 grams, according to documents available with Cricinfo.

PCB officials of the time had revealed the nature of the substance, but court and police documents now finally confirm the details. Asif was caught with the substance in his wallet at Dubai airport on June 1, 2008 when travelling back to Pakistan after competing in the Indian Premier League. He was detained for 19 days before being released.

Shoaib Akhtar has been banned from cricket for two years and Mohammad Asif for one, after both were found guilty of using the banned anabolic steroid nandrolone, by a three-man drugs tribunal formed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

Both men tested positive after dope tests conducted internally by the PCB at the end of September. They were pulled out of Pakistan's squad for the Champions Trophy on October 16, the day before their opening game.

"We gave a full chance to both the pacemen to fight their cases and after a thorough inquiry we feel they failed to prove their innocence," said Shahid Hamid, the chairman of the panel that also included former captain Intikhab Alam and Waqar Ahmed, a medical expert. "The process of doping was investigated carefully. We made sure the tests were conducted properly, samples reached the laboratory in Malaysia safely and there was no error in testing in the laboratory.

"Both the players were satisfied and accepted the tests and gave their point of view but after a thorough inquiry and bound by the Wada (World Anti-Doping Agency) and the International Cricket Council (ICC) we reached the decision." Bob Woolmer, Pakistan coach, told AFP the ban "was not good news for Pakistan."


and news continues.......... he denied first of taking drugs and proved several times, even in IPL

From my 25 years of observation, this is what is wrong with Javed Miandad.

He is a much better person and enjoyable to watch when he lets his bat do the talking....
He should never be running his mouth, as everytime he opens it, big blank whoosh whoosh sound comes out through that gap between his teeth, and what a worthless muffled morornic sound that is....!

So true....

Somehow he is also related to Dawood Ibrahim, the most wanted man of India. God either gves you brain or ability. There are very few people with the mixture of both.

Shoaib pulled from World Twenty20 squad
Cricinfo staff
May 20, 2009
The PCB has withdrawn Shoaib Akhtar from the 15-man squad for next month's World Twenty20. Shoaib had been in doubt after Intikhab Alam, Pakistan's coach, said yesterday he hadn't recovered sufficiently from a skin infection to play the three practice games the Pakistan squad is playing in Lahore. Rao Iftikhar Anjum's name has been sent to the ICC's technical committee by the PCB as a replacement.

"Shoaib Akhtar has been withdrawn from the World Twenty20 squad and Rao's name has been sent to the ICC as a replacement," a board spokesman said.

An unusually graphic press release from the board said that a three-member medical panel appointed by the PCB had found that Shoaib was suffering from "genital viral warts and Electrofulgration was done on May 12, 2009."

The panel added that "his wound though healing needs further care and treatment for another minimum ten days for the purpose of healing and to achieve skin cover. Medical Board further recommended his re-assessment after 10 days.

"In accordance with the above program his re-assessment will be carried out on 1st week of June, 2009.In view of the above, PCB has requested ICC Technical Committee for the replacement."

The condition had initially ruled Shoaib out of the training camp the team attended in Bhurban, a mountainous hill resort near Islamabad. At the time, Shoaib expressed confidence that he would recover in time.

Shoaib has not trained since coming back from the series against Australia in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Questions were asked of his fitness levels during the five-ODI and one Twenty20 series; he failed to fulfill his quota of ten overs in any of the four ODIs he played and bowled only two overs in the Twenty20.

The latest episode is yet another blow to an injury and scandal ravaged career that has seen Shoaib play only 46 Tests out of the 96 Pakistan have played and 144 out of the 305 ODIs Pakistan have played since his debut in 1997-98. Shoaib missed the last World Twenty20 in South Africa when he was sent home after hitting teammate Mohammad Asif in a dressing room altercation.

That sounds harsh, but after watching their head strong, stubborn and shameless reaction, I agree that they should be isolated officially. They really need to learn a few things.
