The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) expressed disappointment over the unanimous distribution of points for the Pak-India Women's Cricket Series despite denials from India.
The series between Pakistan and India was part of the ICC Women's Championship but India refused to play the series, saying that because of strained relations with Pakistan, they were not allowed to host Pakistan from their government.
The ICC considered the matter as extraordinary, splitting the series points between the two teams, which Pakistan expressed with great surprise, calling it an injustice because the series was canceled by India.
Thanks to the International Cricket Council (ICC) decision, India qualified for the 2021 World Cup, but if all six points of the series were received by Pakistan, the Green Shirts would have qualified for the World Cup directly.
Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ehsan Mani has said that we are disappointed with the decision but the team of our board is reviewing the decision and only then can we have any comment on the decision.
According to Cric Info, the PCB is currently in contact with the ICC, but the board has taken complete silence on the matter, although a statement on the matter is expected by PCB in the coming days, though If released, it will not matter much.
The Pakistan Cricket Board had tried to talk about these bilateral series during the last two meetings of the ICC but did not receive any meaningful response from the BCCI.
Earlier, when India refused to play with Pakistan, the ICC had given full points to Pakistan but this time the decision has been made with India.
The obvious reason for this seems to be that the Indian cricket authorities had not previously mentioned in writing any reason for not playing the series, but this time they had already made it clear to the ICC why they would play Pakistan.
