PCB faces difficulties in hosting City Cricket Championships


Lahore: The constant rise of novel coronavirus in Pakistan has started to affect the schedule of sports competitions across the country.

In this scenario, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is also facing problems in organizing City Cricket Championship in six associations.

The selection process for teams in Sindh and Balochistan has been completed, however, the spread of the virus in both the associations has delayed the holding of the championships.

The trials in the remaining four associations Central Punjab, Southern Punjab, Northern and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have not been started yet.

In the current situation of COVID-19, it does not seem possible to hold trials in all four associations even during Ramadan. Various proposals are being considered for holding an Inter-city Cricket Championship within the board.

If PCB doesn’t organize Inter-city Championship, the board will face difficulties in forming teams for the upcoming domestic season. The board has two months before the monsoon for the Championship.
