    The most incompetent cricket board?

    Is it the Mighty West Indies, or the Sri Lankans OR do you think it's the Zimbabweans? I still think it's us. You can't really blame WICB for trying to chuck out selfish, old cricketers and while Zimbabwe has payment issues, they've been working well off late. Sri Lankan cricket board has been giving us competition recently but what a blunder is calling back your pros for a stupid tournament?!

    Discuss.

    BCB has been unable to arrange an A team series for almost 2 years now. And we make plenty of dumb decisions, although probably not as dumb as PCB who are deluded if they think they can bring cricket back to Pakistan anytime soon.

    don't care if other boards are run by maggot infested zombies, or are so incompetent that they are the only reason that aliens aren't making first contact with us - the only board that i'm concerned with remains the pcb and for that same reason, i find their incompetence infuriating.

    so much money, so many resources, yet a total and utter disaster. and no, winning an icc event doesn't take away from the fact that our board is shambolic, archaic, and totally unaware of how an administrative organization should work.

    The WICB reside on another planet when it comes to incompetence. No other board comes close, perhaps ZC but there are bigger issues in that country that makes sport less important and you can at a push understand some of the ineptitude. The WICB on the other hand have criminally presided over the decline of the greatest team in the history of sport.

    being actually a club of boards can't blame much WICB.ZC has govt. and money issues. So also can't blame them. SLC and PCB are the nuts more than others, though they don't have much of issues for not to be better. Only due to some jarheads these boards are being incompetent.
    After them it's BCB.


    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

    WICB. Go through the list of captains and coaches they've had since the 90s - tells you just how dysfunctional that team has been.

    The Phil Simmons saga was a perfect example of WICB chewing up and spitting out competent, honest people who could've made a positive change but weren't allowed to do their jobs properly.

    Given the resources, it's PCB. Windies for all their faults do get their selection of young players right. They can identify genuine talent much better than the tools in PCB.

    PCB is worse than all other boards combined:

    - Incompetence - Check!!!
    - Corruption - Check!!!
    - Bribery - Check!!!
    - Sifarish Culture - Check!!!
    - Waste of resources and funds - Check!!!
    - Blood sucking leeches (A team of ex-player babaays and other vultures making money while doing nothing) - Check!!!
    - Clueless Coaches/Officials - Check!!!

    List is long and I bet all other boards combined pale in comparison

    BCCI - Simply because of the fact that despite having every resource a sporting body can possess and more, India still isn't a clear No.1 at Cricket, hasn't won any of the past 4 ICC Tournaments and still struggles on overseas tours. That's an embarrassment tbh. India should have been dominating world cricket like the Chinese dominate Table Tennis or Badminton with the level of craze that there is for cricket in the country, the monopoly that cricket has in the Indian sporting scene and the billions of dollars that the BCCI has in it's coffers.

    Money doesn't necessarily make a team dominate world cricket, talent does. All money does is extract the best of your talent (provided the money is used properly). How did the West Indies dominate world cricket for so long? Were they as rich as the BCCI?

    Talent + Facilities produce great sportspersons. BCCI has tons of money to provide every facility in the world, so you're saying that India doesn't have the talent? Also, the popularity of sport in a country matters a lot.. more popularity means more people gravitated towards the sport giving the board a much larger domain of people to extract the best talent from. These are thousands upon thousands of people playing cricket just in the maidans of Mumbai, definitely more than the number of people playing cricket than let's say in the entire New Zealand! Why isn't the BCCI able to install a framework to get the best out of that talent?

    For instance, there is absolutely NO excuse for a country like India to not have produced a single sub 25 averaging Test Fast bowler in the last 20 years. All the conditions are conducive for India to produce a cricketing team that should dominate world cricket in all formats and every ICC tournament which it isn't doing in the least atm, which in turn is quite frankly, embarrassing.

    When leagues signed up players based on the impression that they would be available for the whole tournament, then yes.

    If it was known beforehand, no problem. But it clearly wasn't.

    atleast they got to play.

    look at what BCCI does, they dont even bother to give NOC just so that other leagues don't become better then IPL.

    Not giving NOC is better than giving it and then suddenly revoking it and recalling players in the middle of the tournament.

    The franchises already knew that the players wouldn't be available for the full duration of the league. IIRC.

    There is a difference between issuing a NOC for the whole tournament and then revoking it in the middle of the league vs. issuing a NOC for a limited portion of a tournament.

    This is indeed an issue, which is why CPL franchises are unhappy. Fakhar was also signed by Somerset on the assumption that he will be available but now that stint has been cancelled.

    I think, Inzi was behind the decision of calling back players - last year he did mention that. Nothing wrong in that actually, but it should have been a coordinated effort rather than a surprise to both players & their clubs. If I can recall correctly, PAK played Indian Independence Cup in 1997 (Anwar's 194 tournament) without WW, because PCB decided to join at last minute and those 2 couldn't get their release from County, while they were not ready to irritate their County and rightly so. Even FIFA now protects club interest over Friendly matches.

    At one point, PCB'll need to prioritize their own domestic cricket, but not this way. Now, PAK's fringe players or just retired players will be more valuable than the confirmed players - and that could end in disaster by both ways - one was ICL when almost entire PAK national team sacrificed International career for 4 weeks fixed cricket, other one probably I don't need to explain.

    Regrading competence - PCB should have been right behind BCCI& ECB, in terms of power & riches in cricket world ...... they are indeed behind BCCI even now, but for the wrong purpose though.

    There's a lot of competition for the top spot.

    Is it the PCB shooting themselves in the foot every day?

    The corruption of the SLC?

    The money-grubbing CA?

    The BCCI who got so bad they are effectively run by the courts?

    The vindictive WICB?

    SLC easily have run SL cricket into the ground and still digging. WICB have a tougher job to be fair juggling all the island politics, lazy players chasing dollar bills and competition from US leagues and athletics etc. Also they are doing a decent job with CPL at least. SLC have been flat out useless can't even manage the team and support staff let alone do any thing else.

    WICB : in terms of how they treat the players,but atleast we get to see so many new upcoming players,even Sammy has overachieved considering he wasn't that talented.
    But this is one board that has a good pool to choose from and they still end up messing every 4 years.

    SLC: in terms of how they acknowledge the sport,and promote it,they hardly have an idea about returns they would get from tournaments,or infrastructure setup,very similar to their GOV which doesn't realize if the airports are needed or not.

    PCB: In terms of double decisions.

    PCB owns the players, so they have every right to call them back whenever and from wherever they want. The fact that you're posting on a forum and not calling the shots like Sethi just proves you don't have the know-how for the job.
