The Pakistani Cricket Council (PCB) has finally decided to address the conflict of interest caused by the dual role of its employees.
PCB’s Board of Governors decided to formulate a policy on the matter after the PSL 2019 was terminated. The decision was taken at the 25th annual meeting of the management board that took place in Lahore on Thursday.
PCB to Solve “Conflict of Interest” Problems After PSL 2019
During the meeting, the issue of the PCB coaches and selectors who took positions in the PSL franchises was discussed in detail. Participants agreed to mark a detailed policy to avoid future conflicts of interest.
The incident has appeared in the media to various PCB employees, including Mickey Arthur, Azhar Mahmood, Mushtaq Ahmed and other coaches working in various PSL franchises.
According to ESPNcricinfo, the president of the PCB, Ehsan Mani, confirmed the development, but refuses to take any action as the league is only one week away.
Previously, the cricket board was criticized for its partial treatment in this case.
In November last year, the board eliminated the head of selection Inzimam-ul-Haq and the selection committee of members Tauseef Ahmed of the PSL recruitment committee due to his affiliation with the board.
But he did not take action against head coach Mickey Arthur and bowler Azhar Mahmood who are still part of the Karachi Kings coaching staff.
The PSL franchises raised questions about PCB’s dual standards in this regard, after which the board had to address the matter at its annual BoD meeting.
