PCB Chairman Chaudhry Zaka Ashraf has authorized to constitute a task team to present ideas to the board for the development of regional cricket in Pakistan, says a PCB official on yesterday. Ex- skipper Wasim Akram was also asked for to be a part of the body but he has excused yet again due to his pre-scheduled professional responsibilities.
Intikhab Alam will lead the team while Javed Miandad, Zaheer Abbas, Sarfraz Nawaz, Imtiaz Ahmed, Moin Khan, Iqbal Qasim and Zakir Khan will be people of the team.The job of the team will be learning and studying the current structure of regional cricket thinking about its good and bad points and suggest any improvements, if they feel that is needed. The task team will meet and deliberate at the times and places of their convenience. They will meet as repeatedly as they think about proper to undertake the analysis and review.
The task team will have a recommendatory part and the suggestions will not be binding on the cricket board. They will help the board in considering the regional cricket and its set ups. The task team will send its suggestions to the PCB within 8 weeks of its formulation.
