PCB to install digital scoreboards and screens at stadiums
Muhammad Muzaffar Hameed - firstname.lastname@example.org on Thursday, August 18, 2005 - 9:40:24 PM
Shahryar said a plan regarding the installation was presented before the committee by a firm which was installing digital screens and scoreboards in the West Indies for 2007 World Cup and had already installed such type of equipment in South Africa and India. “Shortly a fast track tender will be publicized in the national media for the installation of digital scoreboards and screens,” he added.
Shahryar admitted that the PCB was unable to provide full facilities at the national and regional cricket academies and a new program had been suggested. “A presentation was made to the committee by Salim Altaf, PCB director cricket operations, on the infrastructure of the academies and the committee has approved his suggestions.” Shahryar said the PCB would try to give all the facilities at the regional academies of Karachi, Rawalpindi, Peshawar and Multan and at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore.
The PCB chief said green signal was given by the committee for the upgrading of the National Stadium Karachi but after viewing the heavy budget involved it had been decided to cut down the financial plan, which was initially suggested. “We have decided to cut down 30 to 40 percent of the plan,” he added.
Shahryar said the PCB had appointed an internal auditor who was helping the board to get its outstanding dues of 1996 Cricket World Cup from PILCOM. Shahryar said the board was in touch with PILCOM for recovery of $3.7 million. “Our newly appointed auditor is guiding us to get back the money.” Hanif Mohammed, Imtiaz Ahmed and Ali Raza attended the meeting. Moeen Afzal and Dr Naseem Ashraf could not attend the meeting due to their prior engagements.
