LAHORE - Director General Pakistan Cricket Board Javed Miandad has taken to task the chief curator of the board for rolling out poor pitches at some of the venues in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam trophy. Reports say Miandad held talks with chief curator Agha Zahid and the curator at the national stadium in Karachi Ehsan Arian after the first two rounds of the tournament saw some matches ending in two and three days time with teams being bowled out for less then 100 runs. "I have asked the curators to ensure that we have pitches for the tournament which are sporting in the sense they assist both bowlers and batsmen over a period of four days," Miandad said. Senior batsman Younis Khan had also complained about the poor quality of pitches for the first two rounds and asked the board to provide better playing facilities to teams. Miandad said it was important to have quality pitches in domestic cricket to improve the standard of the game and players. "We will be keeping a watch on the pitches and other facilities for the tournament," Miandad said. The former captain has also embarked on a drive to clear the National Stadium of encroachments and has issued notices to some companies who had their offices and warehouses inside the stadium premises. "I want to make the national stadium one of the best in the country and nowadays ICC regulations do not allow shops or offices in stadium premises at international venues for security purposes," he added.
