Snag in Quaid-e-Azam Champ Trophy

Written by Commoner on December 30th, 2008   (179 views)

PCB means business this time, but players are not understanding it and now is the time when PCB has to pull some strings and tighten some of the leashes.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ijaz Butt made it public last month that the PCB Governing Board will decide in January whether Malik would continue as captain after the end of his two-year tenure. But he had also declared that much will depend on how Malik performs both as captain and the team’s all-rounder in November’s three-match ODI series against the West Indies in Abu Dhabi.

PCB chairman also made it clear that as the international cricket dries up for the Pakistan, PCB is also very much interested in engaging senior and national players in the domestic cricket, but, the problem is that the senior players are not doing that and seems to be oblivious with the PCB directions.

PCB has directed all senior players to play for their respective domestic teams in the 2008-09 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy Championship, and Pakistan national team coach Intikhab Alam, and a few other prominent officials of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had personally asked the players, nobody has paid the heed.

The main culprits are Pakistan team skipper Shoaib Malik, who should have represented Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), all-rounder Shahid Afridi of Habib Bank and fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, who is contracted with the Khan Research Laboratories (KRL).
