Najam Sethi admits Pak’s domestic cricket setup ‘rotten’

Islamabad, Dec 16: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi admitted on Sunday that the present domestic setup in the country is ‘rotten’, according to reports.

According to The Express Tribune, Sethi plans to restructure the local cricket system and address the issue of Pakistan playing its home matches abroad.

Sethi said he plans to bring a two-way change, beginning with restructuring the local system and later addressing the issue of Pakistan being forced to play their home matches abroad, the report added.

The PCB has struggled to convince the International Cricket Council to approve Pakistan as a venue to host series at home since the attack on the Sri Lanka team in 2009, the report said.

Pakistan has been hosting their home series in the UAE since then, and Sethi added that this trend needed to change, the report mentioned.

He stated that he could not make any long-term plans while the PCB was involved in legal issues at the moment. (ANI)
