Pakistan Cricket Board announces that proceeds of 4th One Day International between Pakistan and New Zealand will be donated to families of martyred children and towards rebuilding school

Lahore, December 17, 2014 (PPI-OT): While expressing its deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their loved ones in the dastardly terrorist attack on an Army school in Peshawar yesterday, the PCB announces that the proceeds of the 4th ODI between Pakistan and New Zealand will be donated to the families of the martyred children and towards rebuilding the school.

To demonstrate solidarity in view of the enormous tragedy that has befallen the nation, the PCB has decided to postpone today’s Malala Cup final match scheduled at Muridke. The PCB has also postponed the fourth one-day match between Pakistan A and Kenya team scheduled for18th December. The Fourth One Day will now be played on December 19.

“We tried our best to postpone the fourth ODI but were constrained by the Broadcasters commitment as well as for cricketing reasons advised by New Zealand management”, explained the PCB spokesman.

We are playing outside Pakistan only because of the threat of terrorism at home. If we allow terrorists to disrupt our matches abroad, then all will be lost. So we have decided to go ahead with the match and our players will wear black armbands in grief and observe a minute’s silence and flags will be lowered.

“The PCB will donate proceeds of the match to the families of the martyred and towards rebuilding the school.”
