One of the highpoints of the daylong meeting was the identification, development and involvement of skilled personnel, particularly around the coaching side. It was observed that only the best trained and qualified coaches will support the six Cricket Associations in their endeavors in spotting and promoting quality talent to the next level.

The officials were assured the best available coaches had been appointed at the City Cricket Association level, which were successfully transferring their knowledge and experience in the ongoing two-day inter-city tournament.

I have been pleased with the work done by the six Cricket Associations to date in a very short span of time and this reflects the passion and commitment of these officials. There have been a number of takeaways from today's session and the PCB will ensure it streamlines all processes so that transitionally the authority is passed on to the Cricket Associations as part of its objective of decentralization of cricket.
