The Annual General Meeting of the PCB has accepted resolution unanimously against the government’s intervention in internal matters of the cricket board. The meeting coined government’s interference as actions against the board’s democratic constitution.
A PCB spokesman told media after the Annual General Meeting, “AGM passed the unanimous resolution stating that government interference in the internal affairs of PCB was not acceptable because it violated the democratic PCB constitution sanctioned and approved by the Supreme Court of Pakistan and International Cricket Council,”
This resolution is probably the result of government’s possible actions against the Chairman PCB and some other PCB officials of the board after Pakistan’s miserable show during the Asia Cup and the World T20.
The spokesman further told media that Shahryar Khan has briefed the members that were present in the Annual General Meeting about board’s efforts to bring back international cricket in the country.
Shahryar Khan also asked the regional presidents to encourage school cricket in their areas. He also announced that he would make some efforts to send level 4 coaches to different districts.
Najam Sethi, who is the chairman of the Pakistan Super League, communicated the members about the success of the first edition of the PSL. He termed it a huge financial success for the board and the franchise are also quite satisfied with all the proceedings.
According to Najam Sethi, profits generated from the PSL are much higher than what they expected. He also shed some light on the future plans regarding the PSL, they are looking for more sponsors and they will look to arrange a couple of matches in Pakistan as well.
