KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Friday appointed former Test cricketer Nadeem Khan as tournament director for Pakistan Junior League (PJL).
Nadeem, 52, has played two Tests and two one-day internationals (ODIs) for Pakistan. He is currently PCB’s director of high performance.
His job as tournament director will be in addition to his already existing responsibility as head of PCB high performance.
PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja had floated the idea of the PJL, a franchise-based six-team tournament for U19 cricketers, and invited expression of interest from potential franchisees.
