Sethi will be PCB chairman for the next three years

Sethi will be PCB chairman for the next three years

The call taken by Najam Sethi-led PCB is due to the rescheduling of the World XI's tour of Pakistan, the cricket board announced in a press release on Friday.

Newly elected Pakistan cricket chief Najam Sethi vowed yesterday to bring global competition back to the terror-hit country after years of isolation.

"You know how much work we are doing in this regard and soon the results will be in front of you", Sethi told reporters yesterday.

The new chief, whose first term as chairman in 2013 was marred by court wrangling, said bringing worldwide cricket back to Pakistan would be a challenging but worthwhile goal. Although, Pakistan toured India for a short series in December 2012.

But how quickly they can gel into an effective Premier League unit will be one of the biggest tests facing Hughton's side. He added: "But we prefer to be aggressive without the ball, it's the same as last season".

The returning players have been asked to report to the National Cricket Academy for fitness and medical tests under Arthur's supervision on August 22.

Meanwhile, the PCB has also initiated legal action against India for not honouring a deal under which the two countries were set to play six senior series between 2014-2023.

The players have been asked to report for a pre-series fitness testing and training camp, as planned by the national team management and for the national T20 tournament that starts in Multan on August 25. This change was made to ensure the series would not clash with a high profile by-election in Lahore on September 17, coming in the wake of the Nawaz Sharif's disqualification from the post of Prime Minister last month. "There are security issues, one day we decide that a team will come and then something happens (in Pakistan), but over the next 2-3 months you will hear some good announcements".

Pakistan cricket has got a spring in the step in recent times with the success of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as well as the national team which won the recently-played ICC Champions Trophy in the United Kingdom.
