Fawad Alam's ton gives Sindh an edge over KPK

Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to include the elite category in the provincial central contract, ARY Sports reported today.

Young cricketers who have excelled in domestic cricket will be included in the elite category. Special privileges will be given to the players in the elite category and they will be the part of the provincial teams.

Players who did not make it to the central contract despite representing the national team will be included in the elite category and they will be selected by the National Selection Committee.

The strategy for how to select teams for the new domestic cricket season will be worked out next week and it is expected that due to lack of inter-club and inter-city tournaments, there will be difficulties in selection.

The head coaches of the teams are preparing the report of the players who played in the last domestic cricket season with the consultation with the trainers and assistant coaches.

In the first week of June, the performance of the coaches will also be reviewed and their promotion and demotion will be decided.
