LAHORE

Pak­istan sought the views of for­mer Eng­land coach Peter Moores and a host of lead­ing play­ers of the past to help im­prove the much-crit­i­cised do­mes­tic cricket setup.

Moores held meet­ings with Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB) chair­man Zaka Ashraf in Lahore along with for­mer greats in­clud­ing Javed Mian­dad, In­tikhab Alam, Wasim Akram, Waqar You­nis, Aamir So­hail and In­za­mam-ul Haq.

The 49-year-old, who coached Lan­cashire to the county ti­tle in Eng­land last year, will now help pre­pare a plan for the PCB to im­ple­ment.

“It’s in­ter­est­ing to put to­gether the views of Mian­dad, Alam, Waqar and oth­ers,” Moores told a press con­fer­ence. “I know Pak­istan have pro­duced so many tal­ented play­ers and if I am able to move things for­ward it would be great.” For­mer greats in­clud­ing Im­ran Khan have crit­i­cised Pak­istan’s do­mes­tic struc­ture for not pro­duc­ing world class play­ers and the in­con­sis­tent for­mat of the com­pe­ti­tions.
