The PCB made official on Saturday its tweaked domestic structure that, the board believes, will improve the quality of the game in Pakistan and internationally.

However, top cricketing nations like Australia and England are yet not fully ready to send their national teams to Pakistan, a country which has been hit by domestic problems. Stability, however, has remained elusive. The old departmental cricket model has been scrapped altogether from the PCB constitution, and the new structure will involve only six provincial teams, who will play all the formats in the domestic circuit.

Mohsin Khan is likely to be appointed as the chief selector. "We understand players crumbled under pressure, and this means the system isn't right and things have been haphazard".

"We want to develop consistency in our performances, across all formats, at the apex level so these reforms were pertinent". With this new system, we had to take tough decisions, but had to be balanced.

In the past, global teams have had horrific experiences while touring Pakistan for a cricket series.

Like so many players in that deep-lying role, his influence isn't always noticed, but he has become indispensable to Klopp. The Brazil worldwide has two goals and two assists in four league games and Robertson said the forward was unique.

The new structure has come into existence following the Government of Pakistan's August 9 approval of the constitutional amendments, which were notified to the PCB on August 19, meaning the 16 regions have now been absorbed into the newly formed associations.

The Board of Governors of Pakistan Cricket Board has constituted a three-member Nominations Committee to strengthen the governance structure of the PCB, and in accordance with Clause 41 of the PCB Constitution 2019. The ECB CEO and director will follow them in October.

The structure will have three tiers.

The panel comprises former captain and team manager/coach Intikhab Alam, former cricketer and commentator Bazid Khan, Board of Governor member Asad Ali Khan, PCB Managing Director Wasim Khan and Director International Cricket Zakir Khan. "The idea is to make them self-sustainable and gradually decentralise them". In the final tier, the best performing players from the intra-city competitions will form the six respective cricket association sides to participate in the PCB-organised tournaments.
