The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has rejected a petition regarding the poor performance of national cricket team in ICC World Cup 2019. IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah held the hearing on the petition filed against the Pakistan team on Monday (June 24). The petitioner, Bilal Farooq Alvi, appeared before the court with his lawyer Syed Asad Abbas.
During the hearing, the counsel for the petitioner stated that the Pakistan Cricket board (PCB) and the selection committee have failed. They requested the court to allow proceedings against the respondents. They demanded that a fact finding mission be made over grouping in the World Cup team. The court however rejected the petition.
News of grouping in the team by Shoaib Malik is common but despite all this, his selection is beyond comprehension. The petitioner prayed that court should seek procedure of team selection from selection committee and also issue orders to PM for taking action against selection committee.
