Sethi to sell regional teams to corporate institutions after taking over as PCB chief: sources

LAHORE (Sarzameen News)- In bid to increase its revenue within fortnight, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is mulling to sell regional teams to corporate institutions.
Sources privy to PCB said that Najam Sethi would slash role of associations by selling them to industrial tycoons as planning to introduce drafting system is in its final phase.
In first phase, it would be applied in the biggest national event i.e. Quaid-e-Azam trophy. According to draft system, 10 players would be selected ordinarily while eight would be selected through drafting, two emerging players would also be selected from under 19 regions.
The step would add money in millions in PCB’s account whereas thousands of young cricketers would be unable to show their skills. Former cricketers are lambasting the new system but PCB remains firm on its stubbornness.
Though PCB has initiated efforts to address Karachi region s concerns but later is waiting for voices from other region to oppose the new system collectively.
