Newly-appointed Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shahryar Khan wants cricketing "powerhouse" India to encourage "democracy" in the functioning of the International Cricket Council (ICC) after being forced to let BCCI have the control of the governing body along with England and Australia.
PCB was the last of the ICC members to give its consent to the ICC revamp after it was decided that the cricket-starved nation will be able to play against the full members in a bilateral series including one against arch-rivals India.
"Well, we have already agreed on playing each other (India and Pakistan) regularly from next year. We were the last ones to accept the ICC revamp formula and that is how it is. India deserves to have a special status in the current scenario and I hope they look after the interest of Pakistan cricket," Shahryar told PTI over the phone in an interview.
