LAHORE - The Pakistan cricket has found a home venue away from home in Dubai at a time when majority of the international teams are refusing to visit Pakistan on security grounds. The PCB, in a deal worth Rs 750 million, would play a number of series and matches at the Dubai Sports City for three years, which surely gives the Pakistan team a chance to face teams like Australia, South Africa, England etc to respond to foreign insecurity as the major issue of traveling to Pakistan. The deal would also help the PCB meet the losses it sustained due to the postponement of the Champions Trophy. However, the deal would get the final stamp of approval after chief patron President Asif Ali Zardari appoints the new chairman of the board. Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, PCB Chief Operating Officer Shafqat Naghmi said that the deal starts after the stadium is completed in February next year. He was flanked by Mansoor Suhail, Director Media PCB. Naghmi said that the deal would start with a tri-nation series featuring Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in April 2009. That would follow a T20 event. Naghmi said that the deal would also help the team come back into cricket and remove the rust they get without playing serious cricket. On the sports ministry notification, Naghmi said there were several things needs to be clarified. "There is a confusion in certain aspects and a clear demarcation is required to clear things up in the working," he added "After going through the notification we believe that it is a stop-gap arrangement to refer all the operational, financial and other administrative matters to the ministry till the appointment of the new chairman", he said. The constitution was amended before the issuance of the notification, which makes the PCB bound to follow the sports ministry directives, he added. "There are several things which require immediate attention and the notification is mum on such things completion," he added. "Which means if we have to buy bread for players attending National Cricket Academy or to transfer some low rank officials within the Board we must seek approval from the sports ministry on these petty issues", he asked. "We need to have a detailed meeting with the sports secretary to work things out and hopefully things would be streamlined," he believed. He also believed that the autonomous status of the board will not be dented. "The approval would be required for some important decisions like operations, finances and administrative and once the things are talked about everything would come into proper way," said he.
