Recent cricket blunders #1: changing Test result
The ICC has changed the result of a 2006 England - Pakistan Test match from an England win to a draw.
In my opinion, and that of several better qualified judges than me, eg Michael Holding this is a gross mistake. Not only does it further undermine the authority of match officials but it sets a very shaky
precedent for the future.
The scorecard, with the amended result, is here.
