    Pakistani Domestic Competition = Shambles!

    In the Patron's Trophy, the main domestic Tournament in Pakistan, there was a qualifying competition scheduled before the First Round Proper.

    National Bank and Habib Bank were knocked out, depriving them of any FC Cricket this season.

    The answer, they appealed to be allowed to play on, and the PCB agreed, allowing 4 more teams to play the competition.

    Instead of an 8 team competition, it's now 12!

    Then what is the point in the qualifying process then?

    Well it makes sense, because if 4 teams are booted out, that means a lot of players are immediately unable to be judged on performances...

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    It is possible for just about anything related to Pakistani cricket to degenerate into farce at just about any given time.
    The country as a whole is not the greatest so far as organisation is concerned and The PCB is no different.
    If GWB thinks he can help with that, good luck to him, in his crusade to stabilise The World.

    Everything about the way Pakistani cricket is run is a shambles , most of the people on this forum (well , maybe not Amit :P ) could run things better than they do.

    Particularly the panicky , knee jerk selections.

    If it means you have more players to pick from, and it benefits the National team, why not? Although I doubt it was for that reason, it does seem to be a by-product of it and will benefit the National Team. Makes a change from the English CC teams who seem to want to help themselves more.

    I wonder what will be next - a team demands to play 15 players because they're all good players?
