PCB requests to allow Aamir’s entry at NCA
Pakistan Cricket Board has requested ICC to allow banned pacer Muhammad Aamir to start using facilities at the National Cricket Academy under the supervision of PCB coaches. A senior PCB official said recent media reports that ICC had or would allow Aamir to resume playing first class cricket were incorrect.
‘We don’t foresee that happening but the four-man sub-committee, formed by ICC executive board to look into our request on Aamir’s case, will meet in October after which the picture will be clear,’ the official said.
Asked whether PCB was planning to speak to ICC about the life ban on spinner Danish Kaneria, the official said they only took up Aamir’s case because he had confessed to his wrongdoings. In Danish’s case, he has not accepted any wrongdoing and moreover the ECB submitted a lot of circumstantial evidence against him,’ the official said.
