A pragmatic decision

The ICC board at the end of a two-day meeting in Perth, has not only repealed its earlier overrule in the result of the 2006 test between England and Pakistan at The Oval, but has also revoked Pakistan’s right to host the 2009 Champions Trophy on Pakistan.

Any right thinking cricket lover will agree that The Oval Test overrule would have set a bad precedent and hence the repeal is a welcome decision.

Similarly, in light of the continuing turmoil,as  teams are unlikely to tour Pakistan and hence the decision to strip Pakistan of its right to hold the Champions Trophy 2009 in Pakistan is a pragmatic decision.
