PCB feels cheated by CSA

Afp, Karachi

Pakistan cricket chief Zaka Ashraf Saturday said he felt "cheated" after South Africa abandoned their opposition to controversial reforms of the sport's world body, allowing the proposals to be approved.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman said South Africa had opposed the International Cricket Council (ICC) reforms, seen as favouring the "Big Three" of India, England and Australia, as recently as Friday.
But South Africa supported the proposals at an ICC board meeting in Singapore on Saturday, giving them the extra vote they needed to pass.
"I think South Africa cheated us," Ashraf told AFP by phone from Singapore.
"Just last night [Friday] they told us that they have changed their stance and told us that it was the decision of their board [CSA]. It disappointed us."
