PCB To Have Internal Meeting On July 6; Team's Shambolic Performance To Be Discussed?

In a crucial meeting scheduled for July 6, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will convene its Board of Governors for the first time in nearly four months in Lahore.

The primary agenda: approving the financial budget for the fiscal year 2024-25, a necessary procedure following the expiration of the previous budget on June 30.

However, clearly missing from the agenda is any discussion of the Pakistan team's recent lacklustre performance in the T20 World Cup 2024 and its series against New Zealand, Ireland, and England.

This omission has raised eyebrows, as the team failed to advance past the group stage in the T20 World Cup 2024, despite significant oversight and decisions by PCB management.

As per a report by Dawn, while the meeting’s official agenda is focused on budget approval, any Board of Governors member has the liberty to raise additional issues, including the national team's performance.

Despite this, no formal complaints have been lodged regarding major decisions such as forming a seven-member selection committee, reinstating Babar Azam as captain in place of Shaheen Afridi, or appointing Gary Kirsten as head coach shortly before the World Cup.

The absence of a comprehensive review of the team's performances, which many expected to be initiated during the upcoming meeting, suggests a reluctance within the PCB to publicly address the matter.

Sources disclosed that a preliminary review process has started behind closed doors, though without urgency. The PCB appears to be shifting focus towards the upcoming red-ball series against Bangladesh in August and England in October-November, diverting attention from immediate scrutiny.
