    Giles Clarke and his efforts to restore international cricket in Pakistan

    Over the years this guy has done a lot for Pakistan cricket.

    He was crucial in making this World Eleven tour happen and get ICC blessing

    He was also the one who spearheaded us hosting some series in England in 2010

    Worse than that over the years here have been several times where it would have been normal for anyone to stop supporting us. In his case particularly the spot fixing scandal when the series he helped make happen was ruined because of the trio. Or when For eg when Ijaz Butt accused England of fixing when Giles Clarke was ECB Chairman

    However despite this he has always raised his voice for us in ICC

    Respect!

    I have mixed feelings regarding him. He's always seemingly tried to help Pakistan cricket out but if anyones seen the Death of a Gentleman documentary they'd know how much of an obnoxious and arrogant person he came across in that.

    Rest assured everything he's done is for self benefit. Literally attempted and managed to sell the soul of the sport for his own gain.

    Worst example of a sports administrator.

    Giles Clarke is the most loathsome scoundrel in cricket.

    He destroyed English cricket by selling it to a Pay TV broadcaster which 85% of the country doesn't have access to.

    He set up the Big Three behind closed doors.

    He's done everything he can to hijack cricket for his own whims, to minimise transparency and to commandeer all power.

    Been a poisonous influence at the ECB and in world cricket. Supporting Pakistan cricket doesn't atone for his other decisions.

    so you make threads to sing the glory of giles clark but don't utter a word to praise sethi who has done a great job to revive international cricket in pakistan

    just shows your extreme bias

    What stupid comments in this thread. Us Pakistanis really are the most thankless people.
