The International Cricket Council (ICC) has withdrawn the penalty points that were imposed on the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium following Pakistan vs England Test match held there last month.
The “below average” rating given to the wicket at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium has also been revoked by the ICC.
The decision to revoke the penalty points and the rating was made after an appeal by the PCB management committee, headed by Najam Sethi, to the ICC.
ICC stated, “There were several redeeming features including the fact that a result was achieved following a compelling game, with 37 out of a possible 39 wickets being taken. As such, the appeal panel concluded that the wicket did not warrant the ‘below average rating.”
“We did write a strong letter to ICC on this. I am glad that the decision has come in our favor,” Sethi said after ICC accepted Pakistan’s appeal.
