LAHORE – Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ehsan Mani has revealed his crickete reform plan.

He addressed a press conference along with Managing Director Wasim Khan.

PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani and Khan held a joint press conference in Lahore where they acknowledged that the national team’s performance was unsatisfactory at the international level, particularly Test cricket .

"Our actual problem is at the grassroots, in the system," Khan said while emphasizing on the importance of domestic cricketing structure.

"The system isn’t strong, and we know that because of the result we are seeing, the inconsistency we are seeing," he went on to say.

The PCB MD said that the body would consult stakeholders and do their best to provide this strength.

He maintained that the restructuring would pose a challenge since a number of departments and regions are embedded within it.

"There is no sustainability in our success at an international level, so we are not looking at a short-term solution, we are looking at it for the long-term," Khan asserted.

"The system has been build up over many, many years, and you don’t break a system down overnight," he said.

“I want to make the PCB into a professional organisation run by professional people,” Mani said.
