The recent upheaval within the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) following Pakistan’s disappointing World Cup campaign has sparked intense reactions among fans, seasoned analysts, and senior journalists.
PCB’s Decisions like appointing Mohammad Hafeez as Director of Cricket and Wahab Riaz as Chief Selector have triggered a significant backlash on social media, leaving cricket enthusiasts and experts disheartened.
The widespread discontent stems from what many perceive as erratic choices, leading to a destabilizing effect on Pakistan Cricket.
Has anyone figured out what ails Pakistan cricket? Sacking captains, making new selectors & management, Chairman Management Committee of the PCB travelling to the countries wherever Pakistan plays, Emirates, Sri Lanka, India now going to Melbourne? What’s his mandate? Sacking…

The new management’s unprofessional conduct and disorganization have drawn sharp criticism from seasoned journalists, raising apprehensions about the future trajectory of the national cricket team.
A focal point of controversy emerged with the sudden inclusion of Salman Butt as a consultant selector. Butt, previously embroiled in a match-fixing scandal, faced strong opposition within the cricketing community for his selection.

Bad to worst

The swift reversal of this decision only highlighted the vulnerability of PCB to social media pressure, exacerbating the situation.
As the cricketing world keenly observes these developments, fans are eager for the PCB to establish stability and coherence in governing Pakistan cricket.
Honesty shouldn’t be mischievous or adjustable to the personal gains. it has to be as firm as faith and ideology. My stance on match fixing is irreversible as always. Tainted players reconsideration in the PCB system is highly condemned.
It will malign Pakistan’s image!!
