PCB makes participation in domestic cricket compulsory for selection

Fast-bowler, Mohammad Amir’s sudden announcement of his retirement from Tests has prompted the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to make participation in domestic cricket mandatory. According to a PCB official, besides restructuring of the domestic structure, it would be made mandatory for players to appear in domestic matches to qualify for the Pakistan team.

"For example, Mohammad Aamir who has now retired from Test cricket has to play in the domestic One-Day Cup and National T20 competitions to be considered for national selection," the PCB source said.

Similarly, the players who only feature in Test matches will have to play First-Class cricket in order to be in contention for selection for the national team.
