    Are things starting to fall apart at the PCB?

    We have Muddaser Nazar not renewing his contract which clearly indicates that he doesnt want to continue with the PCB.

    Ali Zia from the NCA leaving as well and appointment of Junaid Zia - all very strange goings ons and the PCB.

    It appears that all is not right on the Admin side and things.

    It takes a long time to hire good quality staff so losing people at this rate cannot be a good thing at all.

    You can look at it both ways. It could be falling apart but it could also be a case of an overhaul, getting rid of dinosaurs and getting new faces in.

    How is Junaid Zia, one of the biggest products of nepotism in cricket history being appointed is a good sign?

    Just because he had a handful of matches due to being the general son around year 2000 doesnít mean 19 years later he is a poor administrator (or good one!) it may be poor selection but it might not be nepotism unless you can prove something we donít know.

    The departure of the likes of Subhan is a positive thing. I don't know much about Ali Zia or his work so can't say much about him but going by the lack of information, perhaps he didn't contribute much. Others such as Haroon Rasheed who have been around for eons without anything to show for it should be on the way out as well.

    With regards to Mudassar, I'm not sure what to think. He is a professional and had a good reputation at the ICC Academy from what I've heard and his work was appreciated there. Some of the players coming through, specially the pacers have mentioned working with him. It's hard to take criticism from ex-players seriously when most of them usually criticise and moan all the time about everything, anyway. But there are a lot of visible weaknesses in the youngsters coming through technically and they need a lot of work, so perhaps the work he was doing wasn't quite enough.

    With Wasim Khan in charge, I'm expecting that there will be competent replacements in all these roles. But last time we got our hopes up, we got Misbah as Head Coach.... so just hoping for the best at this point.

    On Junaid Zia, apparently he has been working for a while with the PCB organising club championships or something. Without seeing his CV and qualifications, he shouldn't be dismissed simply because he was wrongfully selected for the national team a decade and a half ago. Perhaps he is competent, or perhaps he isn't, but we don't have to assume the worst from the get-go.

    Not sure if so much change is good unless good replacements have been found already.

    He just stepped down from being the head of the cricket committee. Ehsan Mani wants to have an ex-cricketer in the role.

    Seems to be some cracks appearing.

    Reading between the lines, it looks like Wasim Khan is realising that this job is even tougher than he thought it would be.

    Some of the people who have left offered nothing to the PCB and deserved to be released, but the likes of Mudassar Nazar not continuing are a worry as he has done a lot of good work over the years at the PCB. There may be personal reasons why Mudassar is leaving but I spoke with him when he came back to the PCB and he was hoping it would be a long-term appointment. For him to now leave is worrying.

    Zakir Khan is PM Imran Khan's eyes and ears at the PCB so he will be finding out about everything that is going on.

    In addition I sense some cracks in the relationship between Mani and Wasim Khan.

    Humiliating defeats have their consequences particularly if they are followed by some ridiculous selection and administrative decisions like giving Misbah all the jobs he is carrying. I'm sure blame game has started.

    It is high time that Pakistan looks outside of the box and country and being in foreign markets into the PCB set up.

    Most of the ex players who have come and worked with PCB have failed to leave a good impression and it's not like the game has actually evolved in Pakistan as it has happened elsewhere around the world.

    PCB needs a big overhaul of the setup and the people it recruits as this now has to change otherwise the game in Pakistan will continue to suffer due to nepotism being rife in every day life in Pakistan.

    According to a TV Channel, cricketers who were usually always in touch with Wasim Khan on msgs, reached out ot him to get permission to go play in CPL and Wasim Khan instead of replying Yes or No simply blocked them! Sound WK is starting to get stressed out and realising maybe he bit off more than he could chew?

    Mudasar Nazar is someone who both IK and Wasim Akram spoke highly of! So not sure why they are all of.

    Is a Players rebelion next in line?

    Mudassar Nazar not renewing his contract is interesting. The only way this makes sense is if the PCB has decided to overhaul the NCA and has told him that his services will no longer be required. If Mudassar Nazar has decided he no longer wants to work for the PCB then that's not a good reflection.

    Removing Wasim Khan from the cricketing committee is the right move as the committee should be independent of the PCB. However, one person who should absolutely not be part of the cricketing committee is Misbah ul Haq. Giving him the role of Chief Selector and Coach is fair enough but he can't be the one evaluating his own performance.

    The cricketing committee should consist of relatively younger ex-cricketers that you can trust and who have no other role in the PCB or any of its affiliations. So Wasim Akram, Saqlain Mushtaq and maybe someone like Younis Khan. The purpose of this committee should be to evaluate based on a set criteria and make recommendations. They should not have any powers beyond that and these individuals should be compensated for their time.

    No players should be messaging Wasim Khan directly about NOC's. There should be an application process and the terms should be clear for contracted players. For example: Maximum of 2 foreign leagues per year. No T20 commitments 30 days prior to a tour you are in contention for.

    Wasim Khan is absolutely right to block the players for messaging him. In any case, if a player has any grievances with Wasim Khan or the PCB they should set up a meeting with him. There has to be a level of professionalism brought into our cricketing culture. Wasim Khan is not your friend he is your boss.

    No one should have absolute power but everyone should be allowed to conduct their work. The PCB needs to ensure they set up long-lasting systems for this. So that the performances on and off the field are accounted for. The budgets and spending sprees are accounted for. The coaches and supporting staff are accounted for.

    Misbah should be able to explain to the PCB and the committee why he selected the atrocious Musa Khan and why Abbas was dropped for the first test. Especially with Azhar Ali now the dummy captain, Misbah is the real de facto leader here.

    Also there should be eye brows raised about Misbah also coaching IU. I've mentioned it before Arthur coaching KK had some merit in it. Misbah coaching IU is a complete conflict of interest and signs of a man more committed to maximizing his net worth than someone dedicated to the Pakistan team.

    Why should the players not earn money? If they are selected in the leagues, they should be allowed to play there. Playing in leagues is much better than playing FC because in the leagues you get to rub shoulders with world-class coaches and players. Of course, they should not be allowed to play dodgy leagues like Qatar T10 but there is nothing wrong if they want to play in CPL or T10 League.

    Before you compare them to Australian and English players, Centrally contracted players from those leagues earn enough for them to play no other league than IPL and even from IPL most of them earn near millions. First of all, its unfortunate that Pakistani players can't play in IPL from where they could have earned a lot of money and secondly they don't earn a lot of money from PCB and PSL too so they have every right to play in every league in which they are selected (except for the dodgy ones like Qatar T10).

    Blocking players just because they are requesting you to give them NOC is a very cold behaviour. What's wrong in replying back to them. It's like my professor blocking me from email because I asked him for extension of CW in uni.

    Then the players can reject the central contract and play leagues. PCB shouldn't be able to stop any players that make themselves unavailable for selection for the national team that are not centrally contracted. For example, Wahab/Nawaz/Tanvir are all playing in South Africa right now. I don't think PCB should be able to stop them unless they're centrally contracted.

    But once you have a central contract then you have to understand that the PCB is your boss. They can set the terms of that contract and if those terms state 2 leagues maximum then you abide by it. That's how contracts work.

    Secondly you really want Babar Azam to play in a UAE T10 league before a test series against Australia?

    These players are assets of the PCB. Imagine, Shaheen Shah Afridi getting a stress fracture at a T10 tournament and missing cricket. PCB invests in these cricketers with academies, facilities, doctors, coaches, nutritionists etc year round.

    And no it's not like you emailing your professor. It's like you whatsapping the dean of your university to register for a course (maybe one that requires prerequisites you haven't completed). How many of your professors do you whatsapp?

    Also it's not cold behaviour if you set the terms out clearly in the central contracts which state how many leagues they can compete in and the proper protocol for obtaining NOC's. You can add that NOC's will not be withheld without just reason.

    Let me reiterate, players can do as they please but if they are centrally contracted then the PCB is their boss. Do you think Liverpool would let Moh Salah go play 5 games in the Chinese league in the off season so he can maximize his earnings?

    Mudassar Nazar in an interview when he rejoined the PCB commented back then that this would be his final stint with the PCB and in 3-4 years time he would like to retire and live with his family in the UK. Maybe he is following through with his plan.

    Maybe Wasim Khan revamping things in the PCB. He did mention in an interview in August that he has more or less taken charge now and that he was pushing the screws in terms of what is expected from the people employed in the PCB.

    We have already seen Subhan leave the COO role and other officials as well. Maybe this is part of WK's plan to bring in new blood in the PCB.

    The PCB has already appointed a Commercial Manager for the first time whose primary job description is to find avenues for the PCB to generate additional income outside the ICC handouts, tv broadcasting revenue, gate receipts, PSL

    I think the PCB is moving in the right direction

    No Surprise. What has the NCA actually produced for Pakistan? What have the coaches over there done? Our U16, U19 and A team cricket has been in decline, our players do not improve in the long run so what is the purpose of the NCA other than being a guest house and an employment centre for old retired people.

    I like what I am reading, Wasim Khan has stopped beating about the bush or worrying about upsetting people, he is now making decisions

    When team is not doing well, it is easy for people to get demoralized and resign.

    Pakistan just have to have a few good tournaments and things should be back to normal again.

    Enthusiasm is missing.

There may be personal reasons why Mudassar is leaving but I spoke with him when he came back to the PCB and he was hoping it would be a long-term appointment. For him to now leave is worrying.

    Zakir Khan is PM Imran Khan's eyes and ears at the PCB so he will be finding out about everything that is going on.

    In addition I sense some cracks in the relationship between Mani and Wasim Khan.
    @Saj don't you think Generation Gap can be issue here ?
    add to that he is coming from complete different set up & mindset .
    im talking about ehsan mani & wasim khan.

Of course, they should not be allowed to play dodgy leagues like Qatar T10 but there is nothing wrong if they want to play in CPL or T10 League.

    Before you compare them to Australian and English players, Centrally contracted players from those leagues earn enough for them to play no other league than IPL and even from IPL most of them earn near millions. First of all, its unfortunate that Pakistani players can't play in IPL from where they could have earned a lot of money and secondly they don't earn a lot of money from PCB and PSL too so they have every right to play in every league in which they are selected (except for the dodgy ones like Qatar T10).

    Blocking players just because they are requesting you to give them NOC is a very cold behaviour. What's wrong in replying back to them. It's like my professor blocking me from email because I asked him for extension of CW in uni.
    I donít think anybody has said that players canít earn money from leagues. Texting the ceo for NOC appears the wrong way to go about it though. I think thereís a team manager so players should be communicating directly with him not the ceo.

    This would be fantastic news if true. I think Andy flower has done amazingly while with the ecb and Iím sure he would like The challenge that is Pakistan cricket player development. Mudasser has been a fantastic player, coach etc but sooner or later everybody moves on.

    The biggest problem PCB is in right now that the domestic cricket is getting no sponsorship till now despite multiple attempts to lure departmental cricket for sponorship.

    There is a proper procedure to getting a NOC to play in leagues abroad. Messaging the CEO of the company isn't that way. I work in a university, if I go message the VC to ask if I can have time off to go to a training at another university he would laugh in my face. It isn't his job to approve that, it is my supervisors job and I have to file the right papers to get it approved. Same concept here. If I was in his (Khan's) shoes, I'd be blocking too. I don't want 50 messages asking if they can go play elsewhere. Put the proper paper work in and get the NOC. Even if this is true (I'm not inclined to believe a random channel reporting it with no sources) it isn't a poor reflection on Wasim Khan rather our players. They've been too used to doing things the ad hoc way. Its high time professionalism was held up to a higher standard.

    They brought that guy from England's cricket academy to review and suggest changes to the NCA. His report is due soon (or is very recently submitted with the CEO and not released) according to sources. The fallout at the NCA is due to that reason. Changes were always on the cards when a professional was hired to run the organization, who further went out and hired experienced professionals to provide advice on changes needed. We're starting to see imprints of Wasim Khan's influence. I am all for it. Too many people at PCB sitting in cushy offices doing nothing.

    That's not a credible source though, seems to be just random speculation. I'd be very surprised if he agrees to leave his family behind in England and be based in Pakistan. He's on record as stating that the only thing that interests him now are the cushy coaching jobs on the franchise circuit.

    Wasim Khan speaking at a presser today:

    "I can't speak too much about investigations at NCA. What was going to happen first was a suspension followed by an investigation but he (Ali Zia) decided to resign. That doesn't mean the investigation won't happen."

    "Regarding Mudassar Nazar, when I joined PCB, he made it clear he probably wanted to do 1 more year. With what's happened with Ali Zia, I think Mudassar wanted to make his position clear because it takes time to find replacements. He wanted to make sure there was no speculation about his position so he announced it 6 months in advance."

    What I'm hearing about the Ali Zia accusations are bad. But it seems he wasn't the only one up to no good.

    Hope the PCB reveal all.

    It is apparently an ice berg into the financial corruption in the PCB. He resigned assuming that will prevent the PCB from looking at things deeply. WK has other ideas. I am sure all PCB employees are nervous that things are changing and they will no longer be allowed the joy rides they enjoyed in the last 70 years

    And another one bites the dust

    PCB’s Chief Financial Officer resigns


    Lahore, 13 January 2020:

    Badar M. Khan, PCB’s Chief Financial Officer, has tendered his resignation after more than eight years in the role and will be departing at the end of the month.

    Badar M. Khan said: “After serving under five PCB Chairmen since starting in July 2011, it is now time to move on and explore other opportunities. It has been a pleasure to be a part of the PCB and not only contribute in the financial and commercial growth of the company, but also meet and work alongside some of the best professionals.

    “I want to thank all my past and present colleagues for their support and wish the PCB future success.”

    PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani said: “Badar has been an important member of the PCB Senior Management Team. On behalf of the PCB, I want to thank him for his contributions and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

    The PCB will soon start the process to find Badar M. Khan’s successor.

    Lol Wasim Khan was not playing. He is cleaning house now, people are also resigning because they know there are going to be no more freebies, thund culture and that they will either have to perform extraordinarily or be booted.
