Pakistan’s poor T20 World Cup campaign is reportedly set to trigger major changes in the PCB, including the implementation of a new code of conduct for players.

Pakistan’s disappointing T20 World Cup campaign in the USA has prompted the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to plan major changes. According to reports from News18, the PCB is set to introduce a new code of conduct for players, who faced criticism for taking their families along and attending promotional events during the tournament.

Chairman Mohsin Naqvi is reportedly upset with senior officials for the lack of discipline in the team, which failed to progress beyond the league stage. As a result, some senior management officials may lose their positions, and stricter policies will be enforced. A new rule preventing players from bringing their families to ICC and other major events is also expected soon.

“You can expect the PCB to lose senior management level officials and also enforce some strict policies for the players in future,” a source was quoted as saying by News18.

“The fact that so many players not only took their wives and children to the World Cup but even had their parents, brothers, etc staying in the team hotel has left the chairman unhappy. Some of these officials are not professionals but fans of the players and have given them lot of concessions which eventually led to the World Cup debacle,” the source added.

Additionally, it has been reported that the PCB chief has requested performance assessment reports from all senior management officials due to dissatisfaction with preparations for the ICC Champions Trophy next year in Pakistan.

Moreover, according to a report in ‘Jang’ newspaper, some Pakistani players accepted appearance fees of USD 2,500 for a meet-and-greet event in Dallas. Another event, ‘A Night with Stars,’ was canceled due to payment disputes between captain Babar Azam and other players. These issues will be scrutinized in the review of Pakistan’s league-stage exit after losses to the USA and India.

Despite having four chairmen since December 2022, no senior management officials have been replaced or terminated. It appears that the indiscipline among players is partly due to senior management officials who have been lenient and supportive, including in last year’s central contracts finalization, according to sources.
