Responding to a petition filed against Pakistan cricket team's performance in the ongoing World Cup, Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday referred to the country's win over South Africa and dismissed the petition.

Justice Athar Minallah heard the petitioner's lawyer who stressed that the Pakistan Cricket Board and the selection committee had failed and urged to allow proceedings against the respondents. The petition stated the national cricket board is answerable to the nation and "owing to its present-day precarious operations is causing shame, disrepute and dishonour to the citizens of Pakistan".

After reports emerged that groups formed in the current World Cup squad, an inquiry against those responsible was urged in the petition demanding formulation of a fact-finding commission. The petition also stated that the court should look into the team selection procedure, quoted Express News
