ICC responds over controversial aircraft banner during Pakistan Afghanistan world cup match
LEEDS, England: ICC responds over controversial aircraft banner during Pakistan Afghanistan world cup match.
The World Cup organisers faced a major headache during the group match between Pakistan and Afghanistan here at Headingley when a small plane started to hover around the venue carrying a controversial political message.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has strict policies against displaying political or religious messages at any international cricket matches more so at the World Cup.
But they were unable to stop the plane from flying above Headingley with the controversial political message. The message is part of a controversial campaign aimed against Pakistani authorities.
The game’s governing body took note of the plane that hovered over Headingley carrying the controversial message stressing that such incidents won’t happen again.
