MCC says Pakistan should lose disputed test

MCC says Pakistan should lose disputed test

The Marylebone Cricket Club recommended Sunday that the ICC overturn its awarding of a draw for the disputed England-Pakistan test in August 2006.
England originally won the match at The Oval in the first forfeit in the game's history but the International Cricket Council then changed the result at an executive board meeting in July.
The controversy began after tea on the fourth day of the fourth test when Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq refused to lead his team back on the field after the umpires enforced a five-run penalty for alleged ball tampering.
The MCC, which is the independent governor of cricket's laws, wants England to be given its victory back. However, the ICC has the final say on whether the result will be reversed.
The MCCs 18-man world cricket committee is an independent group of former players that is charged with improving the game and its governance.
