The Appellant requested the Pakistan Cricket Board to provide certified copies of managers of National Cricket Team from January 01, 1991 to December 31, 1999.

This Commission held that PCB is established under the Sports (Development and Control) ordinance 1962. The section 2 of the ordinance states “any statutory corporation or other body corporate or institution set up or established or owned or controlled or funded by the Federal Government.

In the Rules of Business, 1973 of Cabinet Secretariat (Cabinet Division), Islamabad the Pakistan Cricket Board is placed at item 18(38) under Interior Division. All the Divisions, attached departments including the autonomous bodies of the Federal Government are enlisted in the definition of the public body as defined in section 2(ix)(a) the Act.
In the light of the discussion above the Commission is therefore of the considered view that the PCB is a public body, answerable and accountable under the Right of Access to Information Act, 2017.

The Chairman, Pakistan Cricket Board is directed to provide the appellant the certified copies of contracts signed by PCB with the Managers of Pakistan Cricket Team from January 01, 1991 till December 31, 1999 forthwith but in any case not later than ten days.
