Mini Pakistan... By Nayyaruddin

03 January, 2014

Pakistani cricketers always bear the burden of representing the image and the hopes of millions of fans. Their behaviour has a social and political significance that goes well beyond the field. The victory in a world cup ODI or T20 contest, can move nearly all sections of the Pakistani nation in an incomparable manner. Thus, for the ordinary Pakistani cricket fan, Pakistan Cricket Club (PCB) is not just an organisation, it is a mini Pakistan. Hence, the PCB and not the players need a turn around.

It is suggested that PCB must be totally revamped from the top to the bottom, to make it function like a top class world level organisation, with zero tolerance for old amateur and bureaucratic style of working. Intellectual, moral and financial corruption, nepotism and favouritism, in each and every sphere of its operations, must be done away with. Its vision statement must be to be better than the best. If PCB wants to survive in the fast changing world of competition, it must change its old habits and rebuild itself.

Gone are the old decadent ways of assembling players for a camp, just before the tour to show their fitness and playing abilities. It must be the specified duty of the selectors to devise a plan to monitor the health, eating habits, general behaviour and performance of the players in a scientific manner. These contracted players must not be allowed to have a free reign, even during the off days.
