Spurning the mechanism of departmental cricket, the new administrative team of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) adopted the regional system.
The idea was to limit the teams so the notion of ‘quality over quantity’ in all the three departments of the game can be promulgated and practiced. However, Pakistan’s results in recent times haven’t been great. Particularly in Australia, the green team proved a house of cards.
Reviewing all this, former Pakistan skipper and one of the most iconic cricketers ever to play the game, Javed Miandad said that the new system isn’t helping to produce professionals.

The 62-year old, who has been a big proponent of departmental cricket, once again criticized Pakistan’s move towards regional cricket.
In addition to all that, the Karachi born also reviewed the current performances of the national team. While he was never in favor of removing wicket-keeper batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed from captaincy, Miandad also backed the struggling Azhar Ali, who replaced the 32-year old cricketer.
The World Cup winner feels that completely blaming Azhar Ali isn’t right as Pakistan failed to produce results in all the three aspects of the game, particularly emphasizing on batters not scoring big.
