In preparation for the upcoming three-match Test series against Australia in December 2023, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to establish a training camp in Rawalpindi. According to sources, the Test squad members are expected to report on November 20, with training commencing on November 21.

Facing scrutiny following a disappointing performance in the ICC World Cup 2023, the PCB has scheduled a crucial meeting at its headquarters in Lahore on November 11. Zaka Ashraf, the chairman of the PCB Management Committee, will engage with former cricketers and captains to assess the team’s performance in the mega event.

Key decisions on the Test squad that will tour Australia are expected to be made during the national selection committee meeting next week. While some officials advocate minimal changes in the Test squad due to time constraints, a focus on adjustments in white-ball cricket has been emphasized.

In an effort to gather valuable insights, the PCB will seek feedback from various cricketing figures, including the head of the PCB Technical Committee, Misbah-ul-Haq, and former cricketers such as Umar Gul, Azhar Ali, Saeed Ajmal, Mushtaq Ahmed, Aqib Javed, Mohsin Khan, and Moin Khan. Discussions will also involve reaching out to Mohammad Hafeez, who resigned from the committee before the World Cup squad announcement.

Addressing potential alterations in the coaching staff, Chairman Zaka Ashraf will explore options and legal considerations regarding their contracts. The meeting’s agenda will also encompass deliberations on captaincy for both red-ball and white-ball formats.

The Test series against Australia is scheduled as follows:

As the cricketing fraternity awaits the outcomes of these discussions and decisions, the PCB remains focused on strategic moves to enhance team performance and make necessary adjustments ahead of the challenging Australian tour.
