Can you succeed by blowing things up? A centrist Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in this day and age is precisely what this country doesn’t need. It’s time for change. This is our moment, and this is the moment for change for better future for the cricket in the country. Or was that just good marketing? It makes me feel better to think it was a little bit of both.
The inclusion of the former test cricketers in the board and the way they have started handling things and above all the way they all are showing passion, concern and will to serve the cricket is very welcome and provides a glittering hope that things will improve from now on, and the golden cricketing passion will return in the country.
The Pakistan Cricket Board must reconsider its blanket national ban on its players participating in the non-sanctioned Indian Cricket League, new PCB Director General Javed Miandad said, and he is more than right. Former Test leg-spinner Abdul Qadir as the new chief selector with two new members of the national selection committee who will work under Qadir besides announcing a six-member national junior selection committee headed by Mohammad Ilyas, a former Pakistan Test cricketer. They all have supported Javed Miandad in this regard.
PCB chairman is also not much happy from the Twenty20 stunt in India as it is creating ill will in the Pakistani team.More on:Abdul Qadir, javed miandad, Mohammad Ilyas, Pakistan, Pakistan Cricket Board
