PWCCA obtains stay against PCB

The Executive Committee of the Pakistan Women's Cricket Control Association, which is registered under Corporate Law and is a Full Member of IWCC was today, 22 April 2003, awarded a STAY ORDER by the Senior Civil Judge Lahore with regards to the indulgence of the Pakistan Cricket Board with affairs of women's cricket affairs in Pakistan.

PWCCA approached the Senior Civil Judge Lahore after PCB announced that it had taken over the affairs of women's cricket in Pakistan and started holding so-called National trials for women all over Pakistan. It must be noted here that earlier, the Honourable Lahore High Court had directed the PCB only to determine any one genuine association out of the existing three and regulate women's cricket in Pakistan.

PCB worked beyond the mandate given by the Honourable Lahore High Court and decided to take over the affairs of women's cricket.

A copy of the Stay Order for your ready reference is available here in pdf format.

The following is an attested copy of the Order passed by Senior Civil Judge.
