    If you are going to follow the other boards then also pay like the others do.

    BCCI is at next level, but I dont think there is any/much difference in between PCB and other boards.

    They are trying to emulate the Australian cricket structure. I think these drastic changes will fire back. In Third word Countries like Pakistan, economic issues of cricketers are very important and if there is a gap created somewhere in the new process then it will have negative repercussion.

    this is a good move and forces professionalism and accountability of the selectors, who previously could avoid dong their job by casting the net wide. now there's nowhere to hide, they really do have to pick the best in the country, with very little scope for error. that means they have to work harder and smarter to identify the best talent.

    excellent move.
