He said the PCB cannot hope and wait for an allrounder to pop up.
“PCB wants to start grooming all-rounders. PCB has asked regional coaches to send names of players who are all-rounders, even in the Under-19 and Under-17 categories, so that all possible candidates can be given maximum chances,” he said.
