PCB should take steps

In the past Pakistan cricket team tour England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa every 4 years. Now they tour after every six years. Like Pakistan team full tour to Australia in 1999-2000 than in 2004 and then in 2010.Now because of PCB miss management Pakistan team tour after every 6 years and same with Pakistan tour to England in 2001 than in 2006 and then in 2010. PCB should change this cycle and arrange tour against top team after every four years. Pakistan cricket team should also play 5 test matches series against top team like England and Australia. On the other hand recently India host England for 5 test matches and now they host Australia for 4 test matches when they tour England and Australia they also play similar number of test matches.
Pakistan cricket team rise to number-one in the ICC Test rankings for the first time. Pakistan Cricket team lost the series against New Zealand by 2-0 margin and Pakistan Cricket team lost the series against Australia by 3-0 margin. The main reason of this is the bounce and seaming condition our player should correct their batting technique and should know, how to play in these condition.PCB should also kept in mind when Pakistan Cricket team tour any country they should at least 2 or 3 side matches so that player should acclimatize to the conditions. Pakistan Cricket team draws the series in England. Pakistan Cricket Board should encourage its player to play county cricket and league cricket to adjust in the English condition because there are many important events lined up over the next few years in England.
This year ICC Champion Trophy will be held in England from June 1 to 19, 2017. In May 2018 Pakistan tour to England for two test matches, Furthermore, in 2019 Pakistan tour to England for five ODI matches and one T20 and than from 30 May to 15 July ICC cricket world cup 2019 will be played in England. Therefore, the next three years are crucial for Pakistan considering the number of games in conditions most of our players are not acquainted with. so for next three year Pakistan tour England so it is very high time PCB should take steps that its player get county cricket contract and rest of the player who could not get signed by any county team than they get to play league so that they can acclimatize in England condition and get used to how to play in seaming condition. The PCB should take steps to arrange A-team tours to prepare youngsters.
