The captain of the Pakistan cricket team will be named on May 7 and his appointment will be on series to series basis.

This was stated by Chairman, Pakistan Cricket Board, Dr Nasim Ashraf at a news conference here on Tuesday after a meeting of the ad-hoc committee which met first time after Pakistan’s debacle in the World Cup in West Indies.

Also present were,Chief Operating Officer, PCB, Shafqat Nagmi and Director marketing and Communication, Dr Ahsan Malik. Dr Nasim said the ad-hoc committee meeting could not finalise the name of captain and coach of the national team as it does not want to act in haste and wants to conclude these issues after a through evaluation by recommending suitable candidates for the respective jobs.

“Hopefully the captain will be appointed on series to series basis while coach will be appointed on a two-year term “,he said.

“The ad-hoc committee was of the view that these positions be filled before Pak team proceed to Abu-Dhabi to play a three match series against Sri Lanka. The proposed series is likely to be held from May 10-15”.

PCB Chief said the captain will be appointed who fulfil the laid down criteria of justifying his place in the team based on his individual performance,meets prime fitness standards,have necessary leadership qualities to lead the side with pride.

“We will not be making any compromise on these standards and even the players who will not be meeting required standard will not be getting a place, no matter how big or small they are in status “,he said.

Dr Nasim Ahsraf said the ad-hoc committee also abolished all the categories, A,B and C after cancellation of players contract.

“One thing is clear now onward only those players will be part of the team who really deserve to be there and there would be no compromise on discipline as well “,he asserted.

He said PCB will study players contracts of three to four cricket boards before finalising its own players contract.

PCB official said the main coaching facility of the National Cricket Academy has been named after Pakistan team’s late coach Bob Woolmer to pay him respect.

He said no decision was taken to appoint paid selection committee and hopefully this matter will be settled down in the next meeting of the ad-hoc committee.

He said a most modern media centre will be built in Gadaffi stadium while the offices inside the Gadaffi stadium will also be re-located and the space available will be utilized to have corporate boxes to generate money during the matches.

“We are in process to hire the services of a curator from South Africa to re-lay our pitches and we want to introduce a new culture of having lively wickets “,he said
