Ex-Pak players lash out at ICC, BCCI for housing team in stadium

Latif said the ICC's role in the whole affair had been disappointing as had that of the BCCI. "It is a shame that in a country like India even their government and Board can't assure safety of our players if they stay at a hotel," he added.

Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board has remained silent on the decision by International Cricket Council to allow the organisers of the Women's World Cup in India to house the Pakistan team at a stadium instead of a hotel but former players have lashed out at the ICC and the BCCI for this development.

Former Test leg spinner Abdul Qadir said the state of affairs prevailing in the Women's World Cup was a sad commentary on the state of relations between Pakistan and India and the role of the ICC.

"I would like to see more cricketing ties between the two countries but for this Indian political parties need to keep sports away from politics. I wish our women do well in the World Cup it would mean and say a lot about the character of Pakistan cricket," he said.
