‘PCB should reconsider their new policies’ says Anwar Ali


Pakistan’s discarded all-rounder Anwar Ali thinks that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should review their newly introduced policies regarding stopping players from playing international leagues.

While talking to the media at National Stadium Karachi (NSK) after Day 3 of Quaid-e-Azam (QeA) Trophy’s round seven ended, Anwar said that PCB should think about their policies.

“We are allowed to play two international leagues according to the contract which we have signed with the board. However, it was their decision to withdraw our NOC for the T10 league and we respected it,” Anwar said.

The bowling all-rounder also talked about PCB’s decision to dissolve departmental cricket which made plenty of cricketers unemployed.

“Dissolving departmental cricket caused problems for cricketers. Many lost their jobs and forced to do odd jobs. But, in the end, as a professional, we have to accept PCB’s policies,” Anwar said.

It must be noted here that PCB had introduced a new domestic structure consists of just regions. The decisions created difficulties for plenty of players who lost their jobs in departments.

On the other hand, the hard-hitting batsman, who is representing Sindh in the QeA Trophy, highlighted that injuries and change in his bowling style highly affected his performance.

“Ups and downs are a part of a cricketer’s career. I always try to focus on my game and improve it as much as I can,” Anwar concluded.
