KARACHI (Agencies) - A history is in the making as Pakistan and England are going to play the first-ever bilateral disabled cricket series later this year. The schedule would be announced in a press conference to be held at Karachi Press Club later in the day. Talking exclusively to The Sports Encounter correspondent here, Amir uddin Ansari, Honorary Secretary of Pakistan Disabled Cricket Association (PDCA) said, "PDCA and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have agreed that national sides of both countries shall play the first-ever disabled cricket series in the history of cricket". Giving further details, Mr. Amir Uddin Ansari told this scribe that during the series, three One Day Internationals and two Twenty20 matches will be played in 2012.

He further elaborated that the series shall be played under rules of normal cricket as formulated by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). The meeting was held at the ICC Headquarters at Dubai two weeks ago where Mr. Martin highly appreciated Pakistan's whole effort for disabled cricket, he added. He quoted Mr. Martin as saying, "Pakistan is miles ahead of England in disabled cricket". "We had agreed on formation of World Disabled Cricket body for elevating disabled cricket in other countries and we will further brainstorm on the issue in next meeting", he said. Mr. Amir Uddin Ansari also revealed that former Pakistan test captain Rashid Latif has been appointed as an ambassador of Pakistan Disabled Cricket. "We are grateful to him for accepting the role and giving us honour; we are hopeful after this development the disabled cricket would gain popularity in the other countries as well and soon we will see them in action", he stated.
