PM Imran Khan has approved the new proposed domestic cricket structure of the country. Being an ex-cricketer and a fan of the sport, he made the decision.
The new structure is completely region based and 6 regional teams would only be taking part in such a new structure.
The first-class cricket would include 2 teams from Punjab and rest from Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Baluchistan and Azad Kashmir/Gilgit-Baltistan.
The focus of this new domestic structure would be lying on the grass root level in order to uncover the hidden talents especially from the areas which are underprivileged.
This formation of new domestic cricket structure is according to the wishes of Imran Khan who always encouraged PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) on adopting the method of Australian cricket.
As per the new system, it would be prohibited to the departments to pitch their teams. Yet they can support the regional teams, the PM has also asked the departments to keep on providing financial and other services to the Pakistan Cricket Board.
