Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Shetty said they have written a strong letter to the ICC challenging the decision to award demerit points to Pindi Stadium.
“As soon as I became chairman, we wrote a long and strong letter to the ICC, outlining the records of other venues and challenging which ground Pindi Stadium should be given a demerit point when we got results in that match too,” Sethi said. told the media in Lahore.
“I am happy to announce that the ICC has accepted our approach and withdrawn the demerit points.” England won the first Test against Pakistan at Pindi in December by 500 runs on the first day.
The ICC also awarded Pindi Stadium a demerit point after the high-scoring Test match between Pakistan and Australia in March last year.
