PCB chief says outlook ''grim'' for Pakistan
LAHORE: Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ijaz Butt said on Wednesday that foreign teams could not be compelled to play in Pakistan unless security situation improves drastically.
He made these remarks while talking to newsmen at the Qaddafi Stadium here.
Chairman board said that attack on Sri Lankan team had globally tarnished the country’s image. “If someone blames PCB for the security, he is ready to accept it,” he said.
Butt said that there was no change in team’s security on Tuesday and lauded police personnel for their bravery.
“I salute to the Lankan players too for their remarks that they would again visit the country,” he added.
He further said that national team would be sent to Bangladesh only after getting security clearance from the government.
