Karachi, Apr 12: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi said that the president of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2015 would be from his country.

Pakistan had opposed changes to the world cricket''s governing body, which hand the majority of powers and revenues to the ''Big Three'' of international cricket: India, Australia and England.

According to The Dawn, however, Sethi had said that the PCB would conditionally support the reforms, which will be officially signed in June this year, in order to bring majorbenefits to cash-strapped Pakistan, adding that they got written assurance that Pakistan will get eight years of series, including with India, earning 300 million dollars.

Sethi also said that the ICC president in 2015 would be from Pakistan, adding that banned Pakistan paceman Mohammad Amir could get a one-year relaxation in his five-year ban for spot-fixing.

However, a PCB official said that Amir would not be eligible for next year''s World Cup even if he returns early to domestic cricket.
