The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Cricket Federation of Uzbekistan have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to promote cricket in the Central Asian country.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will assist the Cricket Federation of Uzbekistan (CFU) in enhancing efforts by planning, organising, and implementing standard player development programmes, which could include two high-performance camps for up-and-coming players at the National High-Performance Centre in Lahore.
The PCB will “help prepare Uzbekistan players on life skills and provide information on anti-doping, anti-corruption, and code of conduct obligations,” according to a representative for the organisation.
He went on to say that the PCB will look at inviting a team from Uzbekistan to play in domestic events in Pakistan.
Other projects planned by the PCB include the 2021-22 domestic cricket season, which will begin with the National T20 Cup. Rawalpindi will host the event on September 23.
The competition was originally set to begin on September 25 in Multan. The PCB, however, chose to conduct the event earlier on September 23 in Rawalpindi, following New Zealand’s unilateral decision to cancel its visit to Pakistan.
The tournament’s final will be held on October 13 at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
