    Squads announced for 2019/20 domestic season (Babar, Haris, Shan, Imad, Rizwan, Sarfaraz captains)

    Lahore, 3 September 2019:

    The Pakistan Cricket Board today announced six Cricket Association sides for the upcoming domestic cricket season 2019-20, which gets underway with the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy from 14 September.

    The local coaches and juniors selectors had initially prepared the provisional squads of 32 players per side, before they were reviewed and finalised by a three-member independent panel – comprising Misbah-ul-Haq, Nadeem Khan and Rashid Latif, who also took into account player performances from past three seasons.

    The PCB centrally contracted cricketers, who are not handed the domestic contracts, will feature in domestic events when not on the national duty. They have been divided equally amongst the Cricket Associations to ensure top-quality and competitive cricket.

    White ball specialists – both domestic and international – have also been allocated to the six teams, who will be remunerated as per the domestic match fee model.

    The six Cricket Association sides will gather in the cities, where they play their first matches, on 11 September.

    For a robust succession plan, the onus of leading the cricket association sides in the upcoming domestic season has been put on the young and emerging international and domestic players. The PCB has also brought in the concept of mentorship, which will see former Test cricketers – with heaps of first-class experience – groom up-and-coming cricketers in the Second XI sides.

    Of the 32 contracted players with Balochistan Cricket Association, 44 per cent are from the province. Rubbing shoulders with seasoned first-class and Test cricketers from around the country will help them develop the requisite skills for this level.

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), however, aims to have maximum representation from Balochistan within the next three to five years by developing a strong grassroots structure through the new Cricket Association and City Cricket Association structure.

    Rashid Latif said: “We took the performances of the past three years, across all formats, into consideration when we sat down to have a look at these teams. We preferred players in early 20s who have shown improvement into consideration and those who have gotten a bit old and have had their performances go downhill were let go – which was a tough decision.

    “There might be questions on why there are only four local players in the First XI and ten in the Second XI teams from the Balochistan Cricket Association. The purpose behind making the call is to groom these players. At the moment, there are 44 per cent native players in the side. Nadeem Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq and I have recommended the PCB to have 90 per cent local players in the Balochistan sides, by developing the game there and providing them the identity.

    “We have focused on the emerging U19 players, who often get left out, after noticing their performances and have selected leg-spinners because there’s a dearth of bowlers who can execute that skill. We have to start searching for the replacements of Yasir Shah and Shadab Khan from today.

    “We have given the role of mentor to three players namely Zulfiqar Babar, Aizaz Cheema and Mohammad Sami. We spoke to these guys and from the next season they will adopt a new career. They will play in the Second XI and mentor the players.”

    Northern will win most tournaments - M Wasim seems to be the best coach along with Kabir Khan, they will push for youth and back them. Could see Haris Rauf and M Musa make it into the national team soon. Not sure why Imad Wasim is the captain specifically for first class.

    Domestic will always have TTF for every country. Also they will be weeded out in the next few years, if they perform poorly they will be dropped. Simple as that. If they manage to play well in first tier, and even with the reforms then fair play to them

    Imran Farhat is vice captain of Baluchistan team, let me repeat IMRAN FREAKING FARHAT has been made vice-captain by the PCB of one of the six "premier" domestic teams.


    He is a guy who last played in 2013, that was 6 years ago, and is 37 years young. PCB in their infinite wisdom thought this guy is the right option for vice captaincy rather than a youngster who actually has a future.

    Ironic part is most of the second elevens actually have good degree of talented youngsters to look out for, while the main elevens comprise of mostly TTFs.

    why are guys crying about the TTFs? this isnt the international team. what did you want pcb to do fire all the previous cricketers?

    it will take at least 5 years to weed out the non performers, and bring in new talent.

    you guys keep expecting things to happen over night. it doesn't work like that, change takes time to implement.

    The problem is that these TTFs are the Don bradman of their domestic teams so the management are unwilling to let them go.
    It's a very sticky situation

    Imran Farhat captain of one of the 6 first-class teams. Clearly, according to the newfound professionalism of Ehsan Mani and Wasim Khan, Imran Farhat belongs to the Crème de la crème of Pakistan cricket.

    If he has a good season, perhaps we should draft him into the Test squad, and if he leads his team well, perhaps we can consider him as a captaincy candidate.

    Salute to the newfound professionalism of the PCB after the dark days of Najam Sethi. Now with the added bonus of speaking with a British accent, which makes everything sound intelligent and professionalism.

    First observation from the list is that Fakhar is deputy to Rizwan, which means PCB isn’t looking for a Captain out of him in future. Good call.

    Farhat is not captain, he is VC. Haris Sohail is the captain.

    Thanks, but that doesn’t change anything.

    So according to PCB’s wisdom, it is sensible to appoint Farhat as vice-captain of one of the six first-class teams.

    The whole point of cutting down the number of teams was to ensure that tried and tested mediocre are weeded out of the system.

    Good squads.

    And imran farhar as vc is a good decision.

    Dont know why posters are crying here. Imran farhat is a domestic great. Guys like trescothick, klinger played domestic till late.

    What do you guys expect? All the first class players to be dropped?

    These are domestic teams not international.

    Also imran farhat is a seasoned player so being vice captain isnt bad.


    Very good squads

    Looking at the second XIs, I don't understand why the second XI games are going to be three-day matches. Some of the teams have FC regulars in there and three-day cricket is a step backwards.

    Having Babar and Haris as captain of their FC team is great news. They will be ready to replace Sarfraz soon. PCB is clearly grooming them by having them get some Captaincy experience over the next domestic season

    Too much drama here.

    Obviously tried and tested failures at international level were going to play as long as they are great at domestic level. We want good quality cricket at domestic level so kicking them out for international failures would not make sense.

    If selections are fair and streamlined then in a few years the talent will come up and non performers will be kicked out.

    In the previous system there were way too many teams that the quality was always diluted and failures at domestic level even could find teams based on past reputation

    Bro,that is naive of you.


    Tried and tested make up the domestic leagues all over the world. Marcus north and many aged crixketers play in australia.

    The purpose of this was to weed out players who were making up numbers.


    If my team was a domestic team i would pay top money to get someone like imran farhat becauee hes a good domestix player.

    Its like how usman afzal played fc in england.

    Point of having few tried and tested ex players is that they can share their experience and mentor young and upcoming player. Having inexperienced players in every team would have been pretty one dimensional,
    also we have to understand that most of the national team players will be on international duty so few senior players from domestics can help in their absence.

    Thinking that all of the players playing in county cricket or shield cricket are only their because they are in contention for national spot is wrong, because only players of certain caliber can go to that distance but you cant have 100s of players good enough to play national level to be playing FC cricket. You need to fill up numbers as well and have certain amount of experience too.

    I cant think of any extraordinary talent missing from the lists.

    The squads are quite good actually. We have to take it as a starting point - only in PP, people believe that you can chop an entire generation and start fresh with kids. The starting is very good - if the system works, in couple of years time lots of sell by date senior players will be churned our.

    Also, most of the posters didn’t understand the second XI concept as I can see - it’s not a separate team, in that case they would have made 12 teams and 2 divisions (which would have degraded the quality). Rather the concept is that 2 teams from each zone will play simultaneously and players will be exchanged. At the start, they have named two squads, but players will swap teams based on performance.

    The best part is Captaincy - I am out impressed and WK must be praised for that. Apart from Rizwan, other 5 are absolutely perfect pick and had Amir committed for Test career, I am sure he would have been KPK Captain. They have picked 2nd XI Captain quite intelligently- most of the players with vast experience, and still performing, but don’t have any future for PCT; won’t be surprised if some of them turns into a domestic coach in n future.

    An exciting prospect and thank god he is thr first class team.

    But one thing has surprised me. Why isn't rumman raees in the first class side. Is he still injured?im really surprised that he has fallen out.

    Glad to see guys like shoaib ahmed minhas which were truly second 11.


    I must say wasim khan selected a great comitittee who have done a great job.


    Im sooo glad that there is no sheikh shakil sons

    Probably there to help out the captain. Say what you want about his ability as a cricketer but he's been a prolific scorer in domestic cricket for decades now and all that experience can be very useful.

    So great to see the captains except for Sindh.Cant wait to see Babar,Haris,Shan and Rizwan as captains especially.
    When will the doomsday for Sarfaraz arrive though, seriously.

    As for the teams you cant just expect all TTFs to be dropped immediately.There is a reason they are topping the charts in domestics.I dont think they can be so easily dropped in one go.There is still quite a few new players and if the system is genuinely good this number will only increase but only time will tell.
    The bright side is that atleast we dont have these oldies captaining the sides like it was the norm previously.

    Yep, good to see that.

    This has never happened in the history of PAK domestic cricket - captaincy being given to all the unusual 'young' folks.

    Usually captaincy is reserved for domestic bullies and TTFs like Salman Butt.

    Oh wait.

    Those crying over this decision surely want the old captains back! How about Umar Gul, Salman Butt, Junaid Khan as captains again? @Mamoon @Syed1



    Though a railu katta like Imad who has no future outside T20s shouldn't have been given one. But still, it's going to make his gang happy, and he's not that old, seems fine.

    Salute to the newfound professionalism of the PCB after the dark days of Najam Sethi. Now with the added bonus of speaking with a British accent, which makes everything sound intelligent and professionalism.

    Not like you guys actually know anything about domestic cricket before you give your knee-jerk reactions but for your information Imran Farhat led HBL to the QeA title last season and it was a season in which he was the second leading run-scorer at an average of 43.76.

    Regardless of his failures on the international level he is a seasoned campaigner on the domestic circuit. From his nearly 20 year domestic career he has likely gained valuable insights that he can pass onto youngsters and he has has earned a place as VC and in the first XI by his performances. And doing well in domestic doesn't exactly mean he will get a test call-up either.

    You can't just purge all the senior players just because they are international failures. Having teams full of youngsters would be absolutely idiotic because most have not found their way as complete cricketers.

    Contrary to expectations, PCB has selected very decent squads. Surely the quality of cricket and level of competion will improve. The next thing to look out for is the quality of the pitches. Hopefully we will witness well balanced pitches.

    PCB have got the right idea with this. Almost all the players deserve to be there except maybe Sohail Tanvir. Those who have problems with oldies don't seem to understand how domestic cricket works around the world, not just in Pakistan. Just because a player failed at the international level doesn't mean that he isn't a good enough player to thrive in domestic cricket nor does it mean that he cannot impart valuable knowledge to youngsters, which he clearly can.

    If you really thought all the players who have had failed international careers were going to be purged then I don't know what world you were living in. Some of these guys are still doing very well in domestic cricket and there is absolutely no reason why they should be out of a job. Especially when they have earned their place in their resoective k

    Special request: Look up Imran Farhat's record in the last QeA before you go about saying how badly he failed as an opener. He was captain of his side (HBL) too last season

    I think Imran Farhat's name on the top of list in the first team sheet didnt help...it was all downhill from me from there.

    Had I seen him later on, or better still completely missed him, I would have been a bit more optimistic.
