“It was decided at the meeting that Pakistan Test captain Mr. Misbah ul Haq and middle-order batsman Mr. Younis Khan will serve as advisors to Chairman PCB on cricket affairs. As and when required, the two advisors may also be invited to BoG meetings in order to solicit their expert opinion”
The two batsman have a thorough understanding of the game and it is a good initiative by the PCB to give value to their opinion on cricket affairs as they can translate the on field environment for the PCB and help in making some sane decisions by bridging the gap between the players and the board.
