PCB to take another crack at Amir ban reduction

ISLAMABAD, (SANA): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Monday said that the board will be pushing for a reduction in the five-year ban on young pace bowler Mohammad Amir at the International Cricket Council (ICC) Annual Conference to be held in Melbourne on Tuesday.

An amended ICC anti-corruption code is likely to be implemented to facilitate a quicker return to international cricket for players serving long-term bans.

The idea behind the move is to help the player get ready to play competitive cricket as soon as the ban period is over rather than wait for the ban to end before he can start training.

Talking to media, a PCB official said Chairman Najam Sethi has inquired the advice of legal representatives and he will try his level best to convince the ICC for a reduction in the young pacer’s ban.

“To have the opportunity to re-launch my career a few months ahead of the ban could make a huge difference to me. It is a massive boost for me to hear this good news,” Amir had said earlier this year when news of a possible amendment first broke.

The ICC meeting will end on June 28. Other matters to be discussed in the ICC Annual Conference include amendments to the ICC’s Memorandum and Articles of Association, as discussed and agreed by the ICC Board in Singapore on February 8, including the appointment of the new ICC Chairman.
