On Saturday, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on-screened the Cricket Association squads for all six teams for the 2021-22 domestic season.
The players chosen in the different crews will first mark their appearance in the major centers to kick off the pre-season camps by the coming Sunday.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, one of the domestic cricketing regions, surprisingly has opted for all KPK’s players in the fold. On the other hand, the explosive batting-brother duo of Kamran Akmal and Umar Akmal, alongside the veterans Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, and Wahab Riaz, have been re-considered for Central Punjab. Moreover, local player representation in Balochistan’s squad has increased to 55% from 45%.
Northern has preferred adding more pace to the squad giving maiden call ups for Zaman Khan and Kashif Ali. Apart from the mentioned players, a pile of them has been exchanged throughout the six associations.
Notably, each of the six squads comprises 40 players, out of which 32, alongside the other ten players, will be bestowed this year’s domestic central contracts. The players who will owe the contracts for the 2021-22 domestic season, are yet to be named.
All the squads for the 2021-22 domestic season were concluded by the chairman, head coach, and chief executive of the respective Cricket Association. PCB’s chief selector Muhammad Wasim, Nadeem Khan, High-Performance Director, Junaid Zia, Domestic Cricket General Manager, and top executives of the other franchises were also present as observers.
Before the game begins, each Association will name a 16-member squad differently for first and second XI tournaments. The players of the same Association can be exchanged among respective first XI, second XI.
Central Punjab’s camp will be conducted at LCCA Ground, Balochistan will have their camp at Quetta’s Bugti Stadium, Lahore, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s at Abbottabad Cricket Stadium, Northern’s at House of Northern, Islamabad, Sindh’s at National Stadium, Karachi and Southern Punjab’s at Multan Cricket Stadium.
