ISLAMABAD: A petition challenging the new constitution of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) was filed in the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday. Major (retd) Ahmad Nadeem Suddle, former coach the Pakistan Army’s cricket team, filed a petition through his counsel Faiz Ahmad Cheema. The petitioner claimed the PCB constitution, which was notified on July 10 this year, was formulated without taking all stakeholders onboard. He said the formulation of the constitution was the work of few selected people and was undemocratic. The petitioner urged the court to order the formation of a new constitution by taking all stakeholders onboard. The petitioner prayed before the court to declare the constitution illegal, null and void. Justice Athar Minallah will take up the petition on Thursday (today).
