Najam Sethi, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), a few days ago shared a tweet targeting ACC Chief Jay Shah. In his tweet, Sethi claimed that Shah unilaterally finalised and unveiled the 2023-24 ACC calendar without discussing the same with their board.

Replying to Shah on Twitter, Sethi wrote, “Thank you @JayShah for unilaterally presenting @ACCMedia1 structure & calendars 2023-24 especially relating to Asia Cup 2023 for which is the event host. While you are at it, you might as well present the structure & calendar of our PSL 2023! A swift response will be appreciated.”

In response, the ACC now has said that the calendar was first approved by the council’s Development Committee and then by Finance & Marketing Committee in a meeting held on December 13. Later, it was communicated to all the ACC board members, including PCB.

The ACC also said that the Pakistan board didn’t communicate back, nor did they suggest any modifications.

“It has come to our knowledge that PCB Chairman Mr. Najam Sethi has made a comment on the ACC President unilaterally taking the decision on finalising the calendar and announcing the same. The ACC wants to clarify that it has followed established due process. The calendar was approved by its Development Committee and Finance & Marketing Committee in a meeting held on December 13th, 2022,” said ACC in their official statement.

“The calendar was then communicated to all the participating members individually, including Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), via an email dated December 22nd, 2022. While responses were received from certain Member Boards, no comments or suggested modifications were received from PCB,” added the ACC.
