PCB chairman calls for Jinnah-Gandhi series

Zaka Ashraf, who is the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) management committee, has expressed his fervent desire to reinvigorate and fortify the cricketing ties that bind Pakistan and India.

During an engagement with the media, Zaka articulated his vision for collaboration between the PCB and India’s cricket governing body, seeking to bolster the cherished cricketing connection that exists between the two neighboring nations.

In an innovative proposal, Zaka suggested the establishment of a groundbreaking “Jinnah-Gandhi” series, drawing parallels with the legendary Ashes series. This envisioned series aims to celebrate the profound cricketing history shared by the countries, not only honoring their cricketing heritage but also symbolizing the potency of sports diplomacy in fostering amicable relations.

Affirming Pakistan’s unwavering commitment to the international cricketing arena, Zaka confirmed that the national team, under the leadership of Babar Azam as captain, is set to actively participate in the upcoming 2023 World Cup.

Highlighting the significance of maintaining consistency in leadership and coaching, he stated that the current coaching personnel would remain unaltered, at least until the culmination of the World Cup. Mickey Arthur retains his role as the Director of Cricket for Pakistan, rendering strategic direction to the team. Grant Bradburn and Morne Morkel join the fold as head coach and bowling coach, respectively.

“I firmly believe this team is delivering and it’s best not to disrupt their momentum,” Zaka affirmed. With pivotal tournaments like the Asia Cup and the World Cup looming, Zaka accentuated the importance of upholding a stable coaching structure. “Given the proximity of the Asia Cup and World Cup, we aim to provide them with a solid foundation for robust competition,” he underlined.
