    Abbottabad stadium is extremely beautiful stadium. If the PCB can invest more money in this stadium in the future I'd like to see a few matches of PSL in Abbottabad.

    No love for bowlers I guess.

    It's not about the ability of the groundsman. They have only one job really and that is to prepare the pitch.

    The problem is in the soil. Black soil is the best soil for pitches as it is a good binder. In Pakistan there is a need for pitches with bounce in them. Then you can leave grass on top or even make a dry surface with cracks, it doesn't matter but the bounce has to be there. Not many pitches are fast but pitches around the world do have bounce.

    Wasem Khan actually mentioned this live yesterday so not much to worry about as he knows what he's doing. Pakistan can import the soil not necessarily from Australia or South Africa but from countries that have that type of soil. 7-8 centres should get revamped and also work on the wickets and outfield can be done at the same time.

    PCB also need to provide adequate equipment including new rollers, grass cutters and covers to make the groundsmen 's job easier.

    They seriously need to get the pitches fixed. It baffles me that Azhar and Asad don't speak about this. Instead they care about their runs only. As they play international Test cricket only they can describe the variation in pitches from country to country or even ground to ground and explain how hard it is to adapt from low bounce to high bounce. It's not a natural phenomenon that pitches in SC are flat an shave no bounce. It's to do with the soil quality and the amount of clay content mixed with soil. The groundsmen need to do courses on pitch development. In meantime PCB can maybe hire one foreign groundsmen and pay him well and get him to train the rest.

    PCB also need to bring in the soil that is a good binder and that would be black soil.

    Can’t just fix it by changing the soil man. The hot weather plays a big part.

    You are expecting miracles. It will take many seasons to repair the domestic structure.

    WACA, Perth. Fastest pitch. Hot in Perth. It's not about the heat man. It's about the soil. Black Soil is a good binder and hence creates a good hard surface when it's mixed with clay. This gives bounce and pace. Sun doesn't matter. In fact sun bakes the pitch and makes it solid which makes it even more fast and bouncy. It's all In the soil. Weather plays a part but weather can be countered.

    @Del @Red Devil @Mohsin @Ahson8 check out the quality of the streams.

    PCB finally improving. I guess credit should be given to the person who took drastic steps in fixing our domestic cricket.

    It was a dull final.

    Imo even the teams were unmatched in quality with Central Punjab being superior having many players with international experience.

    A statistical review of first-class Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2019-20

    As expected and anticipated the revamped first-class Quaid-e-Azam Trophy provided the right balance between bat and ball which led to riveting contests throughout the tournament.

    The introduction of no-toss rule and home and away matches provided equal opportunities to all six Cricket Association teams, while the implementation of Kookaburra balls took away the undue advantage that the pace bowlers had enjoyed in the previous seasons.

    With matches going the distance, for the first time since 2012-13 season, a spinner, Nauman Ali, finished as the highest wicket-taker in the tournament.

    Batsmen got complete value for investing time at the crease, which was evident with a significant jump in the average first innings score to 422 this year from the last edition’s 263.

    Batting feats

    Despite a reduction in the number of matches from 69 to 31, the number of centuries and the instances of the batsmen crossing the 200-run mark increased from the last year.

    As many as 77 centuries were scored this season – five more than the previous season – with champions Central Punjab leading the tally with 18.

    The tally of double-centuries (eight) this season was two times than the last season. Two each were scored by the batsmen from Central Punjab, Northern and Sindh, while the remaining two were divided equally amongst Southern Punjab and Balochistan batsmen.

    Four batsmen – Balochistan’s Imran Butt, Southern Punjab’s Sami Aslam, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Ashfaq Ahmed and Sindh’s Fawad Alam – scored four centuries each, the most in the tournament, and the highest individual score of the event was 249 not out, made by Sindh’s Abid Ali.

    Central Punjab – who boasted a star-studded batting line-up which included Babar Azam, Azhar Ali, Salman Butt, Kamran Akmal, Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad –recorded the highest innings total, a feat which they achieved in the final against Northern with their first innings score of 675 for eight.

    They, however, also recorded the lowest innings score – 113 all-out against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the ninth round – during their only defeat of the season.

    Top run-getters

    Imran Butt was the stand out batsman with 934 runs at an average of 62.27 in nine matches. The right-handed 24-year-old batsman scored four centuries, including a double-century, and three half-centuries.

    Central Punjab’s Kamran Akmal and Salman Butt were the second and third highest run-getters with 906 and 901 in 11 and 10 matches. Both batsmen registered three centuries and three half-centuries each, with Salman, who scored at an imposing average of 75.08, making a double-century.
