ICC not sending neutral umpires in Pak, Zimbabwe series


Karachi: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on announced that it will not be appointing its match officials for the upcoming series between Pakistan and Zimbabwe.

The ICC’s decision has been made after it received a report from its security consultant.

The ICC Board, during its April meeting, had decided that the playing conditions relating to the appointment of match officials could be waived to allow the PCB to appoint local match officials for this series should the ICC decide not to send its umpires and referee due to the current security situation in Pakistan.

But ICC has made it clear that the matches would still be considered official cricket, even though they will not be played strictly in accordance with the ICC standard playing conditions.
