national cricket team. Following the establishment of Pakistan

as an independent dominion of the British Empire

in 1947, professional and amateur cricket commenced in the same year, seeing as local infrastructure had already been established when the country was part of the British Indian Empire. Cricket

Inaugural Board of Control[edit] The Pakistan

Cricket
Cricket
Board was inaugurated on 1 May 1949 as the Board of Control for Cricket
Cricket
in Pakistan
Pakistan
(BCCP).[1] The first meeting, held in the committee rooms of Lahore
Lahore
Gymkhana, saw HE The Nawab of Mamdot made president and chairman, with Justice A. R. Cornelius as one of three vice-Presidents. The following year Cornelius became chairman of the working committee, until he relinquished his connection with the board in early 1953. The working chairman was always one of the three vice-presidents. In April 1957 Ayub Khan imposed three more new vice-presidents (himself being one of them). Then between December 1958 and September 1969 the post of vice-president disappeared. Committees[edit] The response to turmoil within the board has on four occasions been to suspend the rules and appoint an ad hoc committee. The first ad hoc committee was appointed in September 1960 and did not disband until May 1963 having created a new constitution. The President of Pakistan would now nominate the board president who would in turn nominate the other members of the Executive Committee to sit for a period of three years. Representatives of the four provincial cricket associations and Government departments formed the Executive Committee. The BCCP was re-organised in the 1970s and was headed by former cricketers, professional administrators and trustees, who were often businessmen. In November 1976 players' demands for increased salaries reached a crisis and the Pakistan
Pakistan
Sports Board took over running the B.C.C.P.'s affairs. Long-serving president, the formidable Kardar, was in the thick of the dispute. The revolt against Kardar forced him to resign in May 1977 and led to a new Ad Hoc Committee replacing the Board Council in 1978 running Pakistan

Associations were eliminated and divisional and city CAs became members, giving most of the influence to the city Cricket

and Karachi. The Board now governed a network of teams sponsored by corporations and banks, city associations and clubs. There is no province-based official team type organisation of domestic cricket in Pakistan

cricket was involved by dissension and controversies over the national team's poor performance during the tour of India and a public uproar forced the end of the Ad Hoc Committee. The chairman and team captain Asif Iqbal had to step down. Air Marshal Nur Khan now became chairman and he saw the banks and other organisations increase their participation on the Board Council in the face of protests from the zonal organisations. A third ad hoc committee under Javed Burki took charge of BCCP affairs in January 1994 and made a new constitution including giving a new name, the Pakistan

Cricket
Board (P.C.B.) It introduced a chairman and chief executive. After taking heavy criticism on the grounds of corruption and match fixing, the Board was taken over by a fourth Ad Hoc Committee formed on 17 July 1999 which remains in place despite undertakings from Musharraf to bring it to an end. The Pakistan

form and has also proven popular and hopes to similarly revive popular interest in domestic games. However, Pakistan's early exit from the 2007 World Cup cast a shadow and later Dr. Nasim Ashraf's resigned at the end of 2008. Ejaz Butt was named the PCB Chairman in October 2008. Zaka Ashraf took over from Butt in October 2011. On 28 May 2013, Zaka Ashraf was suspended as PCB Chairman by Islamabad High Court due to a dubious election. The newly sworn in Government of Nawaz Sharif
Nawaz Sharif
named Najam Sethi as acting PCB Chairman.[2] On 15 October 2013, the governing council of the Pakistan
Pakistan
Cricket
Cricket
Board was dissolved by the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, and an interim five man management committee was named consisting of acting chairman Najam Sethi‚ Shahryar Khan, two former players (Zaheer Abbas and Haroon Rasheed, and former team manager Naveed Cheema.[3] On 15 January 2014, Zaka Ashraf was reinstated as PCB Chairman. The PML-N Government was unhappy with the reinstatement (since Ashraf was a PPP appointee), and this led to Ashraf's sacking. In February, PCB Governing Board was dissolved and an eight-member management committee (comprising Shakil Sheikh, Shaharyar Khan, Zaheer Abbas, Iqbal Qasim, Naveed Akram Cheema, Yusaf Naseem Khokar and Faridullah Khan, the secretary IPC). Najam Sethi was elected as chairman by the management committee.[4] Major Tournaments[edit] The major domestic competitions are Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, inaugurated in 1953–1954, Patron's Trophy now President’s Trophy Grade-I, National T20 Cup, Pakistan
Pakistan
Super League, National One-day Championship and Haier Super 8 Twenty20 Cup. Controversies[edit] The board is known to have constant rifts and conflicts with Pakistan player Shahid Afridi. In 2011, Shahid Afridi
Shahid Afridi
announced he would retire and also resign as ODI captain. He said the PCB had mistreated him. He went on-record to say that the board was "dishonourable" and that he would "not play under this board" because it "doesn't respect its players". The PCB then announced that for Afridi to announce his retirement like that was a breach of his contract and he had 7 days to re-think his decision and reply. However, he insisted that he would not return until the board was replaced, which led to the PCB suspending his contract and fining him 4.5 million rupees ($52,300).[5] Afridi's no-objection certificate (NOC) was also revoked, preventing him from playing for Hampshire. He filed a petition to overturn the sanctions but withdrew it in June from an out-of-court settlement with the PCB where they agreed to sign off his NOC. Afridi's ask for the replacement of the board was also soon partly completed when Ijaz Butt was replaced as PCB chairman, which prompted him to come out of retirement. Even after he came back, PCB highlighted that Afridi did not apologise. In March 2016, Pakistan
Pakistan
was eliminated from the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 after losing to India, New Zealand and Australia. Many were left disappointed after this and the PCB announced they would take action.[6] There were initial talks that Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal could face a potential 2-year ban following their poor performance but this was not verified.[7] However, the focus was on Waqar Younis and Shahid Afridi. The highlight of this was that Waqar Younis had written up a 6-page report on recommendations along with discreet reasons he though contributed to the failure. However, the PCB were accused of leaking this report to the media, where all details were publicised, particularly popularising the fact Waqar thought it was Afridi's fault.[8] The PCB then refused to meet with Younis, confirming to most that they were responsible in leaking the files. Younis announced his resignation due to this just after Afridi resigned as T20 captain in April 2016. He said the PCB's actions were a disgrace.[9] The PCB apologised to Waqar Younis for the leak on 6 April 2016.[10] In September 2016, PCB leaked plans and rumours that Shahid Afridi
Shahid Afridi
was either being left out of the new 2-year contract or retiring out of choice. Afridi released a statement saying it was unfair for them to do so.[11] He then asked for a farewell match, saying it was his right. However, PCB members said he cancelled a meeting about the issue and wanted him to have his farewell match but that he hadn't contacted them.[12] Governance of Pakistan
