Pakistan Give Threat To Boycott ICC Award Ceremony This Year:
Pakistan Cricket Board's chairman Zaka Ashraf decided to boycott the ICC awards ceremony of this year. Pakistan took this step after the omission of Saeed Ajmal from ICC awards list of the best bowlers of the world cricket.
However, Ashraf's comments, made during an interview to media, suggest the issue is still alive for Pakistan. "We are facing a lot of pressure from the public and from our former players to push for his inclusion," Ashraf said. "I think the ICC should check whether the independent jury is coming up with the best name and they should not give away the due right of any player in the world.
"If anyone else has more wickets than Ajmal, then we are ready to withdraw our concern and instead we will support their pick. But this isn't reflecting well of the ICC and they should rectify it.
