Geoff ICC's mediator

Pakistan's Australian coach Geoff Lawson was asked to return home by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to allay player safety fears over travelling to Pakistan for next month's Champions Trophy.
"We have asked Geoff to join us in Australia and New Zealand when we present to stakeholders, including player groups, the result of the task team visit," an ICC spokesman said on Tuesday.
"As a former Australia Test player, a coach and someone who lives in Pakistan he is in a unique position to give his perspective to those stakeholders."
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said the former Australia fast bowler has left on the advice of the ICC task force, set up after Australia, South Africa, England and New Zealand raised safety concerns over travelling to Pakistan for the event.
