PCB BoG meeting adjourned due to lack of quorum
LAHORE - The 53rd meeting of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Board of Governors, the first-ever in Quetta, was adjourned for a later date due to an incomplete quorum on Wednesday.

The meeting had started with the members offering fateha for all those who lost their lives in a tragic incident in Quetta’s Hazarganji market as well as Naseem Khan, a first-class cricketer and a PCB coach, who recently passed away, said a press release issued here.

"The meeting was then adjourned for a brief period pursuant to five members attempting to table a resolution, which was not part of the agenda.

The PCB Chairman had proposed any business other than the agenda could be considered under Any Other Items at the end of the meeting," he said.

However, the Khan Research Laboratory (KRL) and the four regional representatives refused to return to complete the meeting, he added.

PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani said: "I am hugely disappointed by today's events as I was looking forward to an interactive, productive and constructive discussion, which was aimed at taking Pakistan cricket forward.

"Yesterday, we called on the honourable Chief Minister of Balochistan and engaged in fruitful and enlightening discussions to promote cricket in Balochistan. It is, therefore, particularly disappointing that the representative from Balochistan also refused to return for the BoG meeting."

"We reaffirm our commitment to doing what is right for Pakistan cricket and once again becoming a strong force in the world game, and must not get derailed by personal agendas," he added.

The following members of the BoG attended the meeting: Ehsan Mani, Chairman, PCB, Asad Ali Khan, Kabir Ahmed Khan,Muhammad Ayaz Butt, Muhammad Numan Butt,Shah Dost, Shahrez Abdullah Khan (members), Akbar Durrani (Ex-Officio), those who did not attend the meeting due to prior engagements are Lt Gen (R) Muzammil Hussain and Lt Gen (R) Javed Zia (members).
