LA­HORE—Chair­man, Pak­istan Cricket Board, Sha­har­yar Khan has sought the sup­port and co­op­er­a­tion of Vice Chan­cel­lors of Uni­ver­si­ties across the con­try to re­vive univer­sity cricket.

“Chair­man PCB, Sha­har­yar Khan, took ad­van­tage of at­tend­ing all Pak­istan uni­ver­si­ties Vice-Chan­cel­lor’s meet­ing here on Tues­day and pointed out the steep de­clin­ing in univer­sity cricket.

He said that in 1950’s and 60’s the nu­cleus of the Pak­istan Team was se­lected from the uni­ver­si­ties mainly in Pun­jab and Sindh.

The de­cline has shown that uni­ver­si­ties are no longer pro­duc­ing na­tional play­ers and have lost their first class sta­tus. They do not even qual­ify for grade-II cricket.

He promised PCB sup­port to achieve this ob­jec­tive.

Chair­man stated that his re­marks re­ferred to both men and women’s cricket in the uni­ver­si­ties.

Fi­nally Chair­man pro­posed a 5 mem­ber committee com­pris­ing HEC, VC’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive and PCB in or­der to pro­ceed with the re­vival of univer­sity cricket.
