PCB chief invites ICC chairman to Lahore

The outgoing chief of the Pakistan Cricket Board Shaharyar Khan has invited the ICC chairman Shashank Manohar to visit Lahore next month. Khan confirmed on Monday that he had spoken to Manohar during the ICC meetings in London last month and extended an invitation to him.

"Manohar said he will look into the invitation and try to make it. But nothing is confirmed yet," Khan said. Sources close to Khan said he had invited Manohar, a former President of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, to formally attend a farewell reception which will be given to him in Lahore. The PCB is set to elect a new chairman at its Governing Board meeting later this month but Khan will complete his three-year term in mid-August. "The idea behind inviting Manohar to Lahore is to also finalise the World XI's tour to Pakistan in September as the ICC has shown its support for the tour," the source said.
