PCB to split Quaid-e-Azam Trophy to create T20 window
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering splitting of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy Championship, the first class tournament, into two parts this season to create a window for a national T20 tournament before the players’ draft for the next Pakistan Super League.
According to the details, PCB was considering to sandwich this year’s National T20 during the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy matches to ensure maximum opportunity for players to get noticed for next season’s PSL.
Pakistan is also scheduled to play a two-Test match series against Sri Lanka in October. This means that there would be a need for some long-format matches at home so selectors can have an idea of the new talent and players.
The national one-day tournament will be played following the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy.
The first class tournament of the new domestic structure is likely to be kicked off in mid-September.
Meanwhile, the PCB also plans to complete its under-19 tournament before mid-October so that a team could be prepared in time for the upcoming U19 World Cup.
