The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has recently revealed a domestic cricket schedule for next season. However, the initial draft does not contain any stipulated window for a tournament for departmental sides as was promised by the authorities.
Shakil Sheikh, former member PCB Government Board and head of the Board Cricket and Domestic committees, stated that no tournament for departments was there in the draft circulated by the Domestic Department a few days back.
“There is no event set solely for departments in the annual calendar finalized for next year's domestic engagements. This draft has been circulated internally and yet again the departments have been robbed of their due,” he said.
Earlier, PCB CEO Wasim Khan had said that the board was planning to introduce a limited-overs competition featuring departmental teams, who were removed from the domestic structure last year.
