The premier domestic tournament, Quaid-e-Azam Trophy got underway on 14th September with both first XIs and second XIs playing simultaneously according to the newly implemented structure.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has taken a number of steps to rebrand the domestic structure. From new logos of the Trophy and six cricket associations to better pay structure for players, the board is doing a good job to ensure a better quality of cricket.
