Sports minister asks PCB to promote cricket in small areas

MIRPUR KHAS: Federal minister for sports Pir Aftab Jilani said that now the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has no dearth of funds so it should also pay attention towards promoting cricket in small areas.

He was addressing at the opening ceremony of the fifth National Bank Inter-District Twenty20 Cricket Tournament, held here at the PCB ground.

Pir Aftab Jilani said that the National Bank, being a national bank, has rendered valuable services towards sports.

He said that only eleven districts of Sindh are registered with the PCB while the board has no shortage of funds after winning the Twenty20 World Cup. It should therefore also give attention to the promotion of cricket in the interior Sindh besides taking care of administrative matters of cricket.
