UN-BELL-IEVABLE. Actually, looking back on their previous, it's all too believable.
the ICC do seem to be pretty scared of the Asian block.
..that they wouldn't have had the guts to do this if it affected the series result.
the ICC are fucking useless.
That's not to say I didn't sympathise with Pakistan a bit at the time but that's no basis for re-writing the laws of the game! Unbelievable.
This decision by the ICC is uncontroversial, has no effect on the result of the series, and is entirely consistent with their other decision regarding the abandoned game.
This decision is merely mundane book-keeping, nothing more.
It has created a poor precedent, though it may never happen again. Why would they do it nearly two years after it happened, in any case, utterly pointless.
