The Pakistan Cricket Board will carry out a “robust review and analysis” of the national team and the support staff performances in the past three years after World Cup 2019.

The PCB Board of Governors which met in Lahore on Wednesday also agreed the team’s performance in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 to date has not reached the expectations after it won just one of its five World Cup games so far.

“It was agreed, and as previously stated, following the World Cup 2019, the PCB will carry-out a robust review and analysis of the side’s and the team support personnel’s performances in the past three years and submit their recommendations to the Chairman and the BoG for their consideration,” the statement said.

The defeat to arch-rival India has led to a severe backlash in the country with fans and former players.

The PCB said in a statement that the Board of Governors had a discussion on the Pakistan team’s recent performance across all formats.

But the members also expressed their faith in the side and hoped the team will bounce back strongly in its remaining four World Cup matches and finish on a high.

If Pakistan fails to lift its performances in the ongoing World Cup, it is expected that there will be wholesale changes to the team management including the captain and head coach Mickey Arthur, whose contract expires next month.
