Pakistan Cricket Board Decides On Zimbabwe Tour

“We will meet here in Lahore to deliberate over the probable squad for the Zimbabwe tour,” chief selector Mohsin Khan told the Pak Tribune. “We will also short-list the players for the central contacts.

“I don`t know if we will be able to conclude our meeting in a day or two but once we finalise the list, announcing the squad is the PCB`s job,” he added.

The selection committee will hold discussions and hand over the list to the PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt.

Meanwhile, reports have also suggested that the PCB was planning to reduce the power of the selectors in announcing the players’ names for the central contracts. But now the PCB has decided to persist with its old policy and let the selectors finalise the players for the upcoming Zimbabwe series and also list out the three categories of the central contract.

Pakistan play one Test, three ODIs and two Twenty20s during the tour. The team will depart for Zimbabwe on August 28. Pak Tribune
