ICC Chairman Greg Barclay and Chief Executive Geoff Allardice arrived in Lahore on Tuesday on a two-day visit to meet the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) top officials.
International Cricket Council’s high-ups were received by the Chair of the PCB Management Committee Mr Najam Sethi (also an ICC Director) when they reached the board’s headquarters at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium.
PCB Chief Operating Officer Barrister Salman Naseer and other board officials were also present on the occasion.
The visit is believed to be of enormous importance since it came at a time when the PCB and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) were at odds over the fate of the 2023 Asia Cup.

Matters pertaining to Pakistan’s hosting of the Asia Cup 2023 and ICC Champions Trophy 2025 will also be discussed.
