Pakistan Cricket Board are firm on not reviving ties with their neighbours Afghanistan unless their board issues a public apology. ACB and PCB had earlier ‘informally agreed’ to play a couple of Twenty20 games in July and August. However, after the May 31 bomb blast in Afghanistan where 80 people were killed, the series and all cricketing ties with Pakistan were called off by the ACB.
“No agreement of friendly matches and mutual relationship agreement is valid with a country where terrorists are housed and provided safe haven,” one of the ACB official had said after the blast.
And now the PCB chairman Shaharyan Khan has demanded a public apology from his counterparts from Afghanistan. “One day, their chairman [Atif Mashal] met me and was very positive about having good relations,” Shaharyar Khan, the PCB chairman, said in Lahore.Via
