Islamabad:Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to employ nine former players as regional development officers to ensure better co-ordination with the district and city associations.

"The Board will be advertising the positions in the newspapers later this week and the conditions they have kept for the prospective candidates is that they must have played at least 20 first-class matches, should be between the ages of 35 and 50 and a graduate," the local daily The News reported.

The development officers, to be appointed by the end of this month, would be responsible for co-ordinating with the respective associations, recommending budding talent from the region and also implement development schemes there.

Test and One-day International cricketers would be given preference and extra benefits in comparison to those who have played only at domestic level.

Meanwhile, PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan plans to hold a meeting with some former players and administrators, who will give a presentation on ways to improve the domestic cricket structure.

The meeting is scheduled next week at the National Stadium Karachi.
