After spending more than two weeks in England, Wasim headed home after the disgraceful defeat of the Pakistan World Cup against India at Old Trafford on Sunday. He returned to the Board’s headquarters in Lahore earlier in the week and gave a detailed report to PCB Board of Governors members when they met on Wednesday.
“The Managing Director of PCB, Mr. Wasim Khan, reported as part of the investment in developing and improving the training of officials, a discussion was held with an official of the Board of Cricket of England and Wales to send the top referees Pakistan to England to officiate in the second cricket. “In addition, Mr. Wasim Khan also updated the BoG that a partnership with the Warwickshire County Cricket Club had originally been established to send young players and coaches as part of an exchange program.”
But it was not mentioned whether Wasim was able to convince the officers and players during his trip to England about coming to Pakistan for a full Pakistan Super League (PSL) season next year. The PCB is planning to put the PSL 4 completely at home following the instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan. Pakistan, which previously hosted most T20 league matches in the United Arab Emirates, hopes to have the infrastructure to host a full edition of the PSL in its own backyard.

However, during the BoG meeting, the PSL was not mentioned or whether a campaign was launched to convince the main players to come here for a full edition of the league next year. But the biggest obstacle in his plans to have a completely Pakistani PSL edition could be the unavailability of foreign stars. It is understood that one of Wasim’s responsibilities is to use his influence in English cricket circles to convince officials and players that Pakistan is now a safe place to play cricket. Wasim later commented through a PCB press release that such steps “would contribute significantly to a stronger cricket in Pakistan”.
