Imran Khan, in his tweets on Sunday, stated that correct analysis of current cricket crisis can lead to reforms & take Pakistan to top of world cricket and incorrect analysis will compound failure.

“The reason cricket has, unlike elsewhere, failed to become an institution in Pak is because here PM appoints PCB Chief,” the former cricketer said.

“We have a PM who has perfected the art of cronyism & appointed an “election fixer” to “fix” Pak cricket”, Khan tweeted.

“Here is my strategy for reforming cricket in Pakistan: One: to make cricket an institution we have to insulate it from political pressure. Two: Despite an abundance of talent, our players lack temperament & technique, leading to performance inconsistencies,” he added.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman also said that consistency only comes through quality, highly competitive cricket. “Hence, as in Australia, all talent should be concentrated in 6 regional teams,” he added.

“Three: rather than wasting money on senseless expenditures, we badly need more cricket grounds,” he went on to say.
