LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has issued a statement clarifying the transport arrangements for the women?s team following its return from the ICC Women?s World Cup, in response to the controversy created by a viral video of a player heading home on a motorbike with her father.

?The PCB wishes to clarify that as per the usual practice all logistical arrangements were made for the national women?s team on their arrival from England, Monday June 17. There was a bus ready to take the players to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and from there to their homes if needed,? the board said in a statement on Thursday.

?Officials from the Women?s Wing were present to facilitate the players and management, some of the players though opted to return home through their own transport with their families after seeking due permission from the team manager. The PCB regrets news items in certain sections of print and electronic media that erroneously claimed that there were no arrangements made for players? return from the airport,? the statement read.

Some reports in the media had claimed there were no PCB officials present at the airport to receive the players, nor were there any transport arrangements for them upon their arrival in Lahore after a woeful campaign in the World Cup.

A video of a player from the team had also gone viral on social media, showing her returning home with her father on a motorbike.

Pakistan lost all seven of their matches in the Women's World Cup currently underway in England, ending up last on the points table.
