We wanted to hold the meeting earlier but due to some reasons it was delayed and now it will be held on Thursday. Top officials of the PCB and PHF have been asked to appear before the committee for a detailed briefing on these matters,” Agha said.

The agenda of the meeting includes a comprehensive briefing on PCB’s income and expenditures during last three years. Salaries and other allowances of the PCB chairman, chief executive officer and all other PCB officials will also be discussed during the meeting. Construction of cricket stadium in Burewala is also on the agenda.
