Tribute paid to Nur Khan.
LAHORE, December 29, 2011 (Frontier Star): Pakistan Cricket Board
is organizing a ceremony to pay tribute to former President PCB Air
Marshal Nur Khan on January 3, 2012. Air Marshal Nur Khan remained
President of Pakistan Cricket Board (formerly BCCP) from 1980-1984. He
died at Rawalpindi on December 15, 2011, says a press statement on
Wednesday. As President PCB Nur Khan initiated the successful Endeavour
to take the World Cup out of England, the first three editions had been
held, for the first time and bring it to the sub-continent in 1987. He
also mooted the idea of the ICC match referee and neutral umpires - both
an integral part of international cricket under the ICCs aegis. Nur
Khans legend was not limited to cricket alone. He promoted hockey and
squash, and left his indelible imprint on both these sports as well.
