PCB to now run directly under Pakistan PM’s office

Only time will tell if this move heralds a positive new era for Pakistan cricket team. The PCB now finds itself under closer scrutiny and with potentially greater resources at its disposal.

In a significant move, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has been placed directly under the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), shifting its governance from the Ministry of Inter-Provincial Coordination. This marks a potential turning point in the administration of the country’s beloved sport and Pakistan Cricket Team.

Pakistan Cricket Team under Prime Minister’s watch:

Previously, the PCB operated under the purview of the IPC, with its secretary holding a seat on the PCB’s Board of Governors.

Now, following a recent notification, the Board will answer directly to the PMO, bypassing the Ministry. This increased oversight from the highest level of government signifies a renewed focus on cricket’s development and performance.

New Leadership, New Direction: PCB

This change coincides with the recent appointment of Mohsin Naqvi as the unopposed chairman of the PCB. Naqvi takes the helm after a period of turbulence within the governing body, including the resignation of Zaka Ashraf, the previous chairman.

With a fresh leader and direct PMO supervision, hopes are high for improved governance and strategic direction.

What Lies Ahead?

The implications of this shift remain to be seen. Proponents believe it will enhance accountability and prioritize national cricketing interests.

Others express concerns about potential political interference. Regardless, the direct involvement of the PMO suggests a heightened commitment to cricket’s success in Pakistan.

Time for Change?

Only time will tell if this move heralds a positive new era for Pakistan cricket team. The PCB now finds itself under closer scrutiny and with potentially greater resources at its disposal.

Whether this translates into improved on-field performance and a flourishing cricketing ecosystem remains to be seen. One thing is certain: the landscape of Pakistani cricket governance has undergone a significant change, and its impact will unfold in the coming months and years.
