LAHORE - Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday presented a new look domestic structure to separate the departments and regions in domestic tournaments to improve the quality of the domestic cricket and bring it at par with international standard. PCB Director General Javed Miandad unveiled the structure here at a press conference held here at the Gaddafi Stadium. Intikhab Alam, Zakir Khan, Shafiq Papa and others were also present on the occasion. Miandad said the new structure would create new bench marks in domestic cricket helping the cricketers to sharpen their skills and to showcase their talent in a professional way just on the pattern of international cricket. He said the Patron’s trophy has been renamed as “President’s Trophy Grade I” in which only departments would be playing and the event will be played from October 3 at various venues across the country. “We have introduced a new structure after a thorough consideration after having input from different cricketing quarters which are related with the game and the PCB committee finalised it keeping in view the ever growing needs at domestic level,” he added. Miandad said the new structure aimed at enhancing the domestic cricket quality as the matches would be played on international standard under the supervision of qualified PCB officials. “All the participating teams will be equipped with full coaching staff and all the grounds will be of international standard and it is going to be a domestic event being played in an international manner,” he asserted. He said doping would be conducted on random basis during the matches and its samples would be sent abroad and anti-corruption rules would also be implemented during the matches. “All these efforts aim at presenting an improved structure where cricket is being played in a way which ensures it high quality and standards. A committee comprising Intikhab Alam, Zakir Khan, Agha Zahid, Shafiq Papa and Saqib Irfan will be monitoring the entire domestic season to put up its recommendations for further improvement. A secret committee will also be functioning to have an overall look on the domestic circuit and will also be submitting its report to the PCB.” Miandad was of the view that by improving the domestic cricket quality they would be able to produce ‘quality cricketers’ to serve the Pakistan cricket in a better and more professional way. He said Inter Region U-19 three-day and one-day tournaments will follow the President’s Trophy after which Quaid-e-Azam trophy will be played. “This year, we will be having 14 teams in Quaid trophy instead of 13 as Bahawalpur is the new addition in it. We are expanding the base of regional cricket by inducting more teams to provide ample opportunity to our upcoming cricketers.”  He said the PCB was striving for the cause of domestic cricket and it was hoped the new system would help in producing professional cricketers.  To a query, he said: “I want to see Pakistan team winning the T20 Cup in Sri Lanka. Every match of the Cup is very important and I am confident Pakistan will launch its campaign in Super Eight against South Africa on a confident note by beating the rivals.”
