The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced the squads and schedule for the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2022-23 and the Cricket Associations Championships.

National men’s chief selector Muhammad Wasim has finalised the teams for both competitions after consulting with the six Cricket Associations.

Yasir Shah, Azhar Ali, Khalid Usman, Umar Amin, Sarfaraz Ahmed and Hasan Ali will lead Balochistan, Central Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Northern, Sindh and Southern Punjab in the two-month Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, in which each team will play the other twice in the 10-round group stage.

The first five round matches will take place in the Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi, the Iqbal Stadium in Faisalabad, and the Abbottabad Cricket Stadium in Abbottabad. The final five round matches will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, the Multan Cricket Stadium in Multan, the stadiums in Abbottabad, and the stadiums in Rawalpindi. The tournament’s championship game will take place from November 26 to 30. The location of the final will be revealed soon.
As part of its efforts to encourage and reward top-performing cricketers, the PCB recently increased the match fees for its players participating in domestic cricket. To that end, it has offered PKR 17 million for the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, with the winning team receiving PKR 10 million and the runner-up receiving PKR 5 million. Each of the top performers—the best batter, best bowler, best wicketkeeper, and player of the competition—will receive PKR 500,000. The winner of the championship round will receive PKR 50,000.
Nine HD cameras at Pindi Cricket Stadium in Rawalpindi will record the first eight rounds of matches, which will be broadcast online on PCB’s official YouTube page. The final will be shown on PTV Sports, and the schedule for the final two rounds will be disclosed in due course.

Below are the rosters for each of the six cricket associations.

The second XI teams from each of the six Cricket Associations will compete in the Cricket Associations Championship, which will also start on September 27 and be played on a double round robin schedule.

Instead of the tournament’s customary three-day matches, the PCB has instituted four-day matches to increase competition.

The matches will take place between September 27 and November 23, with three of the matches from rounds six through eight taking place at Bugti Stadium in Quetta. At the UBL Sports Complex in Karachi, Sindh, the reigning champions, will play Central Punjab in the first round encounter.
