The below average performance of green shirts in Cricket World Cup 2015 opener against India once again put PCB under spotlight of critics as according to cricket experts the board with all the postulated facilities at their disposal have failed to provide the meliorate combination for Pakistan to compete in world cup 2015. Despite commitments made by Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Shaharyar Muhammad Khan over the stream steps taken and standard operating procedures adopted by the cricket board to ensure security for restoration of International cricket in Pakistan once again that was clogged after attack on Sri Lankan team in 2009, The Board has failed as legion attempts to convince any ranked team to visit and play the series with team Pakistan were made but because of politics within the management the motives remain unattended. Cricket experts are converted that defective performance of Pakistan team is linked with maverick behavior of PCB.
