The PCB is planning to discuss these matters with players and their agents, and they have tasked their International Cricket Department with addressing this issue.
Recently, prominent players like Babar Azam and Shaheen Afridi engaged in Q&A sessions on X. Babar Azam held a Space on February 1, answering fans’ questions on various topics, including his cricket career and personal life.
