The ICC has set up a three-member tribunal to look into the spot-fixing allegations against three Pakistani players. The hearing will be held between January 6 and 11 in Doha, Qatar. The trio was suspended in September without finding out any provable evidence against them in any sort of corruption. Now ICC is wasting time by this reason or that. Their purpose seems to leave Pakistan without the services of these three super stars in the upcoming World Cup. Our puppet cricket board is saying yes to each and every order of ICC without any logic. This is mainly due to an inefficient and unprofessional person heading PCB. There are unconfirmed reports that the PCB may not include these three players in the final list of World Cup preliminary squad. If this is true then what PCB expects from the ICCs tribunal? PCBs stand ought to have been firm in this case and it should have taken a principle stand that unless these three are proven guilty they will play for Pakistan. If the ICC really wants to show its impartiality, it should speed up the case and take a decision before the final team announcement for the World Cup or promise that these three would be allowed to play in the upcoming World Cup if proved innocent.
