LAHORE –Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has sent an official communiqué to the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) asking it to submit copy of the court order and copy of the appeal (if any) filed by the BCB against the stay order after perusing the copy of the writ petition regarding Bangladesh tour of Pakistan pending in Dhaka High Court Division.

PCB spokesman on Monday said that after perusal of the writ by officials of the PCB assisted by legal advisor, prima facie the writ petition was devoid of merits and has been filed against public interest which will be detrimental to the game of cricket. The Bangladesh tour of Pakistan and revival of international cricket in the country had also been supported at various ICC forums, he added. The PCB was hopeful that BCB would leave no stone unturned to get the stay order vacated, he concluded.
