Divisional domestic cricket system can satisfy all stakeholders: Majid


LAHORE: Whilst the Pakistan Cricket Board thoroughly examines no hurry to survey the ongoing homegrown cricket framework in the midst of voices from the game’s brotherhood calling for rebuilding of departmental groups, previous legend Majid Khan has proposed an answer that he accepted can fulfill all partners.

After the death of its new constitution in 2019, the PCB for all intents and purposes finished the job of offices and presented six commonplace cricket affiliation sides which contend in three competitions at the top-level. The move was supposed to be enlivened by then Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision for Pakistan cricket.

The patching up of the old framework was met with analysis from the cricket local area as it prompted numerous players, mentors and even groundsmen losing their positions with divisions and clubs.

Majid said neither the departmental framework nor a six-group construction would help Pakistan out. The previous PCB boss accepted a framework in which the divisional sides are supported by offices is the one that would help all gatherings.

“Every one of the 11 divisional groups including one every one of Lahore and Karachi, which are bigger in size against numerous divisions, ought to play top notch cricket and the intrigued offices ought to approach to support each divisional group,” Majid told Dawn in a selective meeting on Sunday.

“The sum which a support will spend on a divisional cricket, the PCB will likewise contribute equivalent to that for the said division.”

The previous Pakistan commander said such a framework will likewise help in the arrangement of the PCB boss. The offices supporting the divisional groups, he said, can see their delegates run for the post while the Prime Minister, who’s likewise the PCB benefactor picks one of them.

“The secretary, financier and different individuals from the collections of those divisions ought to be chosen by their constituent universities (zones/clubs),” said Majid, who played 63 Tests for country, while expre­ssing dissatisfaction over the absence of consistency and arranging by the cricket executives.

“Our cricket has been running throughout the previous 70 years on a similar act of irregularity.

“We have been changing our framework, foundation following not many years, while our adversaries have been running their framework on consistency for a long time.

“To rival them you need to change your framework on solid footings and to show consistency and if you would rather not contend them then it is OK let it is proceeding to go what.”

Previous PCB administrator Ehsan Mani likewise attempted to ask offices to support the six common affiliations groups when the framework was presented three quite a while back, yet his endeavors neglected to persuade them.

Majid accepted Mani didn’t do what was necessary schoolwork to guarantee the dep­artments that his proposition would deliver profits from now on.

“They won’t deny gave you give them legitimate framework and program,” he said.

“It is very simple, as in Pakistan many organizations are prepared to approach as they have a ton of chances to advance their items through the sport of cricket, which is broadly well known in Pakistan.

“You want genuine endeavors with clean vision to procure the trust of those organizations to push ahead.”

Majid, who included for the public side in 23 One-day Internationals accepted Pakistan had experienced because of homegrown cricket frameworks changing with the adjustment of systems in the higher workplaces of the PCB.

He encouraged the cricket specialists to remove a leaf from the book of the a lot more grounded cricket countries Australia, England and Pakistan’s chief adversaries India.

“Take a gander at England, Australia, India and different nations, how they have been working reliably on their long term framework and the number of changes we have made in our homegrown construction,” said Majid.

The previous Marlyborne Cricket Club cricket board part said Pakistan, who has a populace of 220 million, can’t bear to execute a six-group framework like that of Australia, where the state sides contend at the high level and are reinforced by ability rolling in from club and school cricket.

“Pakistan has a decent populace of around 220 million and how might you test full ability in six groups?” asked Majid, who said the Pakistan Super League flourishes in view of individuals’ relationship with the names of their urban areas, which isn’t true in homegrown cricket.

Majid said Pakistan cricket required better chairmen adding that it was just conceivable assuming great coordinators are elevated to the highest point of the framework. “In Australia the organization begins from club level and afterward to state and finally at the board’s level, so at the board’s level they are conveying the experience of cricket organization of 30 or 35 years,” he said.


Majid said tragically Pakistan and India’s respective cricket attaches are at a record-breaking low because of political pressures between the adjoining nations.

He mourned that the two nations haven’t played against one another however much they ought to have been given the significance of their contention.

“In 1952-53 Pakistan and India began playing two-sided cricket thus far we could played 80 odd Test matches while Australia and England,

have played 200 Tests during this period,” Majid said.

“Had India and Pakistan been playing cricket like England and Australia do in the Ashes, we both would have been administering the universe of cricket.”

Majid said the state run administrations expected to grasp the significance of game and its true capacity as a business element. He said the neighbors ought to reestablish two-sided ties in cricket as well as different games too.

“Indo-Pak matches, in every one of the games, can produce a great deal of business and that will support the economy of both the nations at a most optimized plan of attack and the public authority ought to understand this,” he said.

Majid accepted Australia’s rec­ent visit to Pakistan didn’t ensure everything groups will do as such from now on, however what assurances is the public group’s height in world cricket with regards to its quality.

He said had Pakistan didn’t demonstrate to the world that they are a group to beat, it would have been substantially more challenging for the PCB to persuade the best sides to visit the country.

“On the off chance that we will be sufficient and possessing top positions [in the rankings], each nation will very much want to visit to and welcome Pakistan.” Concluded Majid.
