NEWS FLASH !!! Another Indoor Cricket
World Scoop !!
the last moment, Pakistan withdraws from World Cup
A most disappointing development
very day preliminary games for the 2000 World Cup began, Pakistan
informed Cup organisers they could not join the competition. The
withdrawal of Pakistan comes after considerable efforts by many
in Pakistan, South Africa and around the world, and is met with
much disappointment everywhere.
outlined to the South African organisers today by Noushad Ahmed
Khan of the Pakistan Indoor Cricket Union, are related to the
Pakistan Government's failure to complete registration procedures
for the Pakistan Indoor Cricket Union in time. Pakistani teams
cannot travel abroad without this registration, and the registration
process will not be completed for several more weeks.
this will alter the World Cup schedule. Alternatives are being
urgently considered, and Indoor Cricket World has several people
in South Africa making enquiries on our behalf. As soon as word
on the "new" schedule is out, it will be reported in
our News Desk and World Cup News sections.
It is to be
hoped the other nations involved in the World Cup will continue
to support Pakistan in their efforts to join the international
competitions. We look forward to seeing Pakistan in the next Indoor
Cricket World Cup.
