    Federal cabinet approves PCB constitution, new domestic structure

    Federal Cabinet Approves PCB’s New Constitution

    The federal cabinet has approved Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) new constitution which puts an end to departmental cricket in the domestic system.

    After this approval, only regional teams will be part of the domestic circuit.


    The constitution was tabled for cabinet’s approval after Inter-Provincial Coordination recommended it in June. The PCB prepared the bill in June.

    Prime Minister Imran Khan had initially floated the idea to dissolve departmental cricket. This means that departments will no longer field their own teams but sponsor each of the six regional teams.

    PM Imran had asked 17 departments to assist the board in setting up the new domestic system.

    The federal cabinet has approved the new domestic cricket structure proposed by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

    According to the details, six provincial teams will be part of the new domestic setup, two from Punjab and one each from Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Federal Areas and Balochistan.

    Teams will participate in matches on a home and way basis, while every squad will consist of 32 players each ó divided equally between a first and second eleven.

    The PCB is set to allocate a significant amount of budget, inorder to ensure that the new domestic structure is successful, which could be in excess of one billion Pakistan rupees. The board has claimed that every player can earn up to 2-2.5 million rupees per year, after being part of the new setup.

    Also another tournament comprising of cities, like Lahore and Karachi, will be played at a lower level. The top performers in this tournament will be available for selection for the provincial first-class tournament. The provincial selection committee will have complete authority on selection matters.

    All the provincial sides are likely to be sponsored by a department, although no department has shown any interest in this proposal till now.

    But please I ask all Pakistan fans too be patient , we will only see results of this new structure within minimum of 4 years.

    As the structure is being used we will need to tinker here and there but honestly believe itís the way to go.

    I think federal government should think about allocating funds for associations in the budget at some point. Associations do not have the capability to run successfully at present

    Associations will have to run in a stable manner for atleast the initial few years for that to happen and for that Federal government will have to step in.

    Associations need to be audited by the auditor generals office and be required to appoint a Big 4 firm as well to do the audit. Funds should only be released subject to these audit results

    ISLAMABAD: The federal cabinet on Friday approved new constitution of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) with regional cricket being focus of the new structuring plan for domestic circuit.

    The federal cabinet, which met here with Prime Minister Imran Khan in the chair, approved the restructuring of domestic cricket set-up.

    “[Finally] after 40 years, restructuring of cricket is done. Now, the focus will be on promoting regional cricket,” Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said after the cabinet meeting. “The cabinet [in the new domestic structure] has decided to promote regional cricket.”

    She added, “It was also decided that special focus will also be on blind and women cricket. The meeting also decided that there is no need to promote veterans cricket rather resources will be spent on youth.”

    Sources said that according to the new constitution of the PCB, the powers of chairman and chief executive have been separated.

    According to the restructuring plan, there will be six regional teams on the domestic circuit — two teams of Punjab, and one each from Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federal Areas cricket associations — thus ending the current domestic cricket set-up comprising 16 regional bodies.

    On domestic circuit, from U-16 to first-class cricket, six teams will be representing their respective provinces.

    However, the associations at city level will continue to work to feed their players to the provincial teams and to play ‘B’ grade cricket. They said that in the new constitution, presidents of three cricket associations will be part of PCB Board of Governors. While, two members will be appointed by the prime minister, who will act as the patron-in-chief of the PCB. One woman will also be part of the PCB besides four independent directors.

    It is relevant to note here that PM Imran Khan has long been showing his desire to bring structural improvement in the PCB to promote regional cricket.

    Earlier in April this year when the matter was presented before the PCB Board of Governors, the cricket board faced setback when majority of the BoG members opposed the idea of abolishing departmental teams in domestic cricket. However, later the PCB on the directions of the PM prepared proposals for making changes in the PCB constitution which was approved on Friday.

    One of the best things about this new constitution is that they've finally managed to break the hold of the pro status-quo Board of Governers over our cricket. These senile chachas were one of the biggest threats to Pakistan cricket moving forward and were also one of the biggest obstacles to change. No cricket board in the world has these chachas who don't know the first thing about governance or management and should have been irrelevant decades ago, exercising so much influence. Good riddance.

    Also let's give credit where credit is due. Ehsan Mani has modernized the management structure of PCB. Powers are now going to be distributed, responsibility is going to be delegated. Everything will not fall on the chairman, as it rightly shouldn't and the Chief Executive will have the more active role of running day-to-day operations of the board.

    Former Pakistan cricketer Basit Ali became emotional while criticising the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB’s) move to abolish departments and introduce provincial teams in the domestic structure.

    Federal cabinet approves new domestic structure

    While speaking in a video, which was doing rounds on Twitter, Basit lamented that domestic cricketers will bear the financial consequences of PCB’s latest move.

    "There is already enough inflation in the country, so if cricketers lose their jobs because of no departmental cricket, how will they survive?’ questioned Basit. ‘I request the PCB to hold at least one fifty-over and one Twenty20 competition for department teams in a domestic season, so that players don’t lose their jobs."

    The 48-year-old also urged his former teammates to raise this issue with the PCB’s Patron-in-Chief Imran Khan.

    "I request Rashid Latif, Shoaib Akhtar, Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja to raise their voice on this issue. If you do not speak, it will be wrong," he said. "Please give your opinion on this matter to the Prime Minister as he values your advice."

    It must be noted that the federal cabinet on Friday approved the new domestic cricket structure proposed by the PCB.

    Was watching caught behind

    It is the same one club one vote and same district cricket system. There has been no change in that. There is no change apart removal of Shafiq Papa, it is the same old people in PCB.

    One club one vote is the biggest cancer for Pakistan cricket.

    THIS!!!!

    People on this forum dont know, how dangerous this club voting is and its the main problem of our lack of development.

    They give votes on whether their player will gets selected or not irrespect how good he is.

    SOme presidents even put unofficial quotas, 2 players from Club C and 4 from Club E. If Club E is a big club and his player isnt that good he will be selected. If Club C is a small club but has a great player, well we cant do anything, try again next year.

    If you make a drastic change to the domestic cricket structure, you have to give the system time before judging results, i would say atleast 5-7 years but no one in Pakistan Cricket, ex test players and the media have the necessary patience

    It is basic root problem that need to addressed

    What is the state of club cricket in Pakistan? It is dying in Pakistan. What steps will be taken to revive this? Most club cricket these days is 20 overs cricket , it is directly impacting young batsmen.

    How does club politics play part in shaping people careers and watch this video to understand it. What are we doing to erdicate this menace?

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dkHuAStWOYQ

    How many people actually play professional cricket at school or club level in Paksitan? If the percentage(population) and coverage(area) is low compared to the potential of Pakistan then what can do we more for more people to get invovled in cricket

    Have we done survey of cricket infrastructure in Pakistan and roadmap to improve the quality of infrastructure?

    The most important thing is to make domestic cricket lucrative for young guys to think that they can have a decent life by playing cricket for 15 to 16 years domestically, and can save enough money at the end of the career. We need to educate young crickters and give them different skills by linking up with federal/provincal goverments through degrees, diplomas and short courses so aspiring cricketers can have a decent life if they can't make to domestic cricket. PCB also need to look out for cricketers after retiring. The point is that you want parents being encouraged to send their children to play cricket. So many parents object to it because of a strong perception of young cricketers having a low probability of making it to professional cricket and not doing education parallelly can have devasting effect on one's future

    If the PCB had BCCI level finances, it could do anything it wanted. Sadly it cannot afford the excessive amount of Cricketers in our system therefore it has to make things leaner, efficient and only provide manageable funding for a smaller pool of players.

    To be honest this talk about PCB needs to look after Cricketers when they retire or outside cricket is hogwash. What the players decide to do with the money they make is up to them, the pcb can't control that.

    This naya PCB is same old.

    Only 25 days left for the season to start and still nothing is decided. It's like sick man wearing expensive clothes and make up to look good but still inside the person is still sick. Wasim Khan with british accent is the expensive suit and make up but PCB is still sick. There is still likes of Haroon Rashid and Wasim Bari in PCB after producing no results for decades in the same organization
