Misbah-ul-Haq, Pakistan's former captain and head coach, has stated that changing the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will have no effect on the country's sport. "We need to modify our priorities and the way we run our cricket system," Misbah stated on Geo News.
He claimed that previous Prime Minister Imran Khan's decision to abolish departmental cricket and their role in sports had done nothing to help Pakistan cricket or any other sport.
"It's been three years since departments or institutions have had any role in cricket or other sports, and what have we accomplished so far?" he questioned.
Misbah saw that departments and organisations that had previously invested money on cricket were now doing it elsewhere.
"In domestic cricket, they formed provincial association teams, although this has just caused administrative issues." According to Misbah, there was nothing wrong with the PCB experimenting with a new domestic cricket structure, but the old system of departmental cricket should have been phased out only once the new system had begun to pay rewards.
Misbah was quoted as saying that a change of face in the cricket board would not make a difference.
"I think that whoever is the chairman we should have a vision about how to run our cricket. No matter who is the chairman or whether there are changes in the board, the system should not change and cricket should carry on."
