    PCB 52nd BoG meeting: Room for improvement in Pakistan's performance in all three formats

    PCB media release

    Lahore, 7 February 2019:

    The 52nd meeting of the Pakistan Cricket Board’s Board of Governors (BoG) took place at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore on Thursday, 7 February. The meeting lasted nearly six hours in which a wide range of matters were considered and discussed.

    Pakistan men’s cricket

    The BoG had a detailed and constructive discussion on the performance of the Pakistan cricket team and players’ selection criteria. Chief Selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq, and selection committee member, Wasim Haider, attended the meeting on special invitation and shared their thoughts, strategy and analysis.

    Inzamam informed the BoG that the broader selection guidelines and principles included player performances, conditions in which the performances were recorded, judgement of the selectors and looking into the future. The chief selector admitted there was room for improvement in the team’s performance across all three formats, but emphasised that the side was heading in the right direction since his panel took over in 2016. He cited the examples of the teams’ past and present rankings, and assured the BoG that the youngsters were on the verge of establishing themselves as the cornerstone of Pakistan cricket’s future.

    It was unanimously agreed that more stadia with upgraded cricketing facilities that provide equal contest between the bat and the ball needed to be provided so that the cricketers can show their true mettle. It was also suggested that the scope of player education at the age-group level should be re-introduced and broadened so that the cricketers can play their role in improving and enhancing the image of Pakistan.

    There was consensus in maintaining the primacy of domestic cricket, revival and significance of junior cricket teams’ tours and reviewing the overall cricket scheduling to ensure the players’ workload was being better managed. The BoG also noted the Pakistan cricket team played 50 days of cricket in the past 123 days, including eight Tests, eight ODIs and nine T20Is with travel in between.

    The BoG also thanked and appreciated Inzamam-ul-Haq and Wasim Haider for their briefing and termed the interaction informative.

    “It was a positive interaction in which the BoG members got an opportunity to get firsthand information on the team’s performance and selection process. A number of good suggestions were bounced off, which will be taken on board as part of our strategy to provide an environment to the Pakistan cricket team where they can produce their best performances.

    “The BoG was satisfied with the briefing and thanked Inzamam-ul-Haq and Wasim Haider for providing their insight on the Pakistan cricket team. The BoG has reiterated its support for the Pakistan cricket team and wished them well in the upcoming assignments,” PCB chairman Mr Ehsan Mani said.

    Domestic cricket structure

    The Task Force for the domestic cricket structure made a presentation to the BoG on the proposed structure. The BoG expressed their satisfaction on the progress made and agreed that the under consideration structure was competitive and will produce high quality cricket.

    It was agreed that once the parameters and concept have been finalised and agreed, this will be presented to the BoG for approval before being rolled into Pakistan cricket.

    “I want to commend the Task Force on the progress they have made in the new proposed domestic cricket structure that focuses on quality over quantity, clarifies the role of the departments and, provides opportunities to improve and enhance the capabilities and capacities of the regions. The Task Force is making good progress and I think they will soon be able to present the best model designed for Pakistan cricket to the BoG for approval,” Mr Mani said.

    Women’s cricket

    The BoG congratulated the Sindh government and the PCB for the successful staging of the West Indies women’s cricket team’s tour to Karachi for three T20Is. The BoG also recorded its appreciation to Cricket West Indies for agreeing to send their side and supporting the PCB in its efforts to revive international cricket in Pakistan.

    The BoG was informed that the West Indies women’s were extremely satisfied and happy with the arrangements and left for Dubai with a good and positive impression of Karachi and passion for cricket, including women’s cricket, in Pakistan.

    The BoG also commended Sana Mir on becoming the first Asian and sixth overall to complete 100 T20Is. The BoG also noted the women’s team’s performance in the series and wished them well for the upcoming matches.

    HBL Pakistan Super League

    The BoG was updated on the arrangements for the HBL Pakistan Super League 2019, which commences on 14 February in Dubai. The BoG was informed that the official anthem was launched on 18 January, while the event team was working hard on the opening ceremony at which a number of world renowned artists will perform, including Junoon and American rapper Pitbull.

    The BoG was also briefed on the issues facing the franchisees and informed it that through the efforts of the PCB and the franchisees, the federal government had given a tax exemption from 1 July 2019, while efforts were underway to get exemption or reduction in tax rates from the Punjab government.

    Other matters

    The BoG approved the PCB’s Anti-Racism Code, which comes into effect immediately with the HBL PSL 2019. The Code mirror’s the ICC Anti-Corruption Code with slight modifications.

    It was agreed as part of good governance practices and transparency, quarterly financial statements will be shared and discussed at the future BoG meetings.

    The composition of the BoG is:

    Mr Ehsan Mani Chairman, PCB

    A rubber stamp authority with a disinterested chairman who is letting Pakistan cricket fall over the cliff.

    Word 'Overhaul' is more adequate than 'room for improvement' and it should start with the support staff and selectors before the players.

    They called in the most biased selector in 10 years, Mr. Inzamam ul Haq who has been acting as the insurance policy of senior non-performers like Hafeez, Malik, Shafiq, Azhar, etc.. If he had his way with Micki Arthur he would've pushed in Kamran Akmal in the team.

    Did anyone ask why there is still not a stable batting department of the national team after 2.5 yearsof his tenure. How a player like Rizwan was selected? how mr. inzi barring Haris Sohail has deselected reserves of the senior non-performers after one series. Asif Zakir, Saad Ali, Usman Salahuddin, and the list continues.

    Did someone ask how did his nephew Imam ul Haq with a 34 average and players with a late 20s average being selected by Mr. Inzamam and players with superior average like Saud Shakeel or Fawad Alam ignored?

    The recent tour of South Africa showed how every player is playing to save his own place than the team.

    On top of this the rest of the batting is also regressing. Fakhar Zaman, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf all have been hitting new lows with every game. Their natural game is gone.

    We have accumulators and non-performing seniors like Hafeez and we are on the right direction according to chief selector rofl. Really a sham meeting only have destoyed and damaged our cricket further.

    Adhocism is a disease and 75+ dinosaurs like Ehsan Mani can't administer as its proven, we need a strong elected institution carried by associations.

    We show the world we will reward rather than punish..(unless I'm mistaken, pcb itself has yet to publically or officially punish Sarfraz, )

    Can’t believe retired generals, judges keep getting jobs in big organisations like PCB and many other companies. How will young people who are qualified find good jobs when the top jobs are being given to these old men? Don’t they already have a good pension etc? Feel sorry for the youth in the country.
