PCB should take ownership of cricket venues in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah: Waqar
Karachi: Former captain Waqar Younis has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to take more ownership of the cricket venues in the United Arab Emirates if they want the national team to produce better results in the region.
Waqar said on Friday that since it was now a known fact that Pakistan`s second cricket home was the UAE due to teams not touring Pakistan because of security reasons, it was time the board took more ownership of the cricket venues in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.
Pakistan is one down in the three match Test series against Sri Lanka in the series being played in the UAE.
Former players have criticized the pitches prepared for the three tests while even captain, Misbah-ul-Haq and senior spinner, Saeed Ajmal have also expressed reservations that the pitches didn`t support spinners at all and were not prepared to Pakistan`s strength.
Waqar said the PCB now should show more ownership of the three venues in the UAE where Pakistan played and have a few permanent employees including curator and ground staff stationed at these venues, a leading newspaper reports.
