‘Cricket should be separated from politics’ says Mani


The chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsan Mani thinks that cricket and politics are two different things and it is better to keep them both away from each other.

While talking on the matter of Indian cricket team wearing army caps during their match against Australia, Mani said that it was not a good gesture by them.

“We should politicize cricket as it is gentlemen’s game,” Mani stated.

Mani asked the International Cricket Council (ICC) to take action against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). “The world’s cricket governing body must take action against BCCI,” said Mani who will write the second letter to the ICC over this issue.

The board’s chairman said that the security officials from Australia and Bangladesh are coming to Karachi to watch the PSL matches. “Pakistan is a safe country and more international teams will experience this cricket loving nation,” he said.

The PCB’s boss thanked Karachi for showing immense support to the PSL which paved the way for them to portray the soft image of Pakistan. “It’s has been amazing to watch crowd cheering for cricket,” he said.

It is pertinent to mention here that the PSL season four is about to enter the playoff stage and the excitement level is high. Karachi Kings, Islamabad United, Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators have made it into top four. The first qualifier of the extravaganza is scheduled on March 13. The National Stadium will host the final of the tournament on March 17.
