The Board had originally changed the result to “match abandoned as a draw” in July 2008.
ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat said: “I’m gratified the Board reached the conclusion it did as this ensures the integrity of the game and the Laws of Cricket have been upheld. I am especially grateful to the PCB for its understanding in this matter.”
In connection with this same Test Match, this is what Michael Holding had to say:
resigned from the ICC when they decided they wanted to change the result of the
Pakistan game at the Oval [against England in 2006, from forfeiture to a draw], because
of politics. You scratch my back and I'll scratch
yours. There is not much integrity at the top level
of cricket and, unfortunately, that is the way the whole world is going."
Michael Holding, obviously a man of integrity, is now vindicated.
