LAHORE: Reacting on ICC decision to take away World Cup 2011 matches from Pakistan, former skipper Zaheer Abbas said Friday that ICC had slapped the face of country’s cricket.

Talking to Geo News, he regretted the ICC decision and termed it hasty and unjust.

Abbas said that law and order situation was bad in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh too, adding that the entire region was in the grip of unrest.

To a question, he said that Board for Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) had never supported Pakistan. He further said that PCB needed to raise its voice against the ICC decision.
