LAHORE - English County Lancashire coach Peter Morris said he was ready to work with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to improve the working of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) besides strengthening its domestic cricket structure.

Talking to the reporters at a press conference here on Thursday along with DG PCB, Director International Cricket, Morris said: “There are few options ahead of me and I may consider working as a part time consultant with NCA for making it a more result-oriented institution to contribute in the overall development of cricket in Pakistan.”

Morris said he would submit a report to PCB within next 10 days regarding working of the NCA suggesting ways and means to lift its performance as an institution to produce fresh and new cricketers.

“I have attended a very productive meeting on Wednesday which was also attended by former cricketers and officials of the PCB and positive discussion took place as far as Pakistan’s domestic cricket is concerned and NCA which is a most modern facility for polishing the skills of cricketers.

Morris, who worked as England team’s head coach from 2007-09 and director of NCA England from 2005-07, was of the view that the PCB already had the services of capable technical professionals who were serving Pakistan’s cricket in different roles.

“I would see that in which role I can contribute in the presence of available technical professionals for bringing improvement in Pakistan cricket and I will definitely consider taking up a part up consultant role,” he said.

Morris said any country’s cricket heavily depends on its cricket structure and what is most important is to make a cricket structure strong and sound in all aspects by mobilising all of its resources. “It is too early to comment on the working of NCA and cricket structure in Pakistan. I am here to listen and then go through all the opinions and proposals before coming up my recommendations,” said the foreign coach.

Praising Pakistan cricket, he said: “It had produced a galaxy of former greats of the game and its cricketers are full of talent and potential. I think with collective efforts and different assigned roles, we can make it better.”

Intikhab Alam said Morris would visit Pakistan soon and PCB would consider his proposals regarding NCA and domestic cricket. “He is a very experienced coach and we look forward to get benefit from his vast experience. He is here to assist PCB as far bringing betterment in NCA working is concerned,” he added.
