Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has issued its five-year strategic plan sanctioned by the Board of Governors.
Titled “Five-Year Plan to Inspire and Unify Our Nation,” the plan envisions to transform PCB into one of the top-performing and most credible cricket boards in cricket.
The plan lays down:
- Strategic and corporate objectives
- A course of action for the progress of the national men’s, women’s and age-group teams
- A clear pathway and structure for grassroots development
Moreover, PCB will monitor the progress on the plan on a monthly basis through a robust tracking system.
Chief Executive PCB, Wasim Khan, said while unveiling the strategic plan:
We developed the five-year plan in 2019 and awaited sign-off by the Board of Governors. We are delighted that we received official sign-off in February this year and are now in a position to formally announce it. Delivery against key priorities for the 2019-2023 plan began last year and I am delighted to see the progress that we have already made across a number of areas.
