The purpose of these workshops, which runs from August 25 to September 8, is to keep the match officials across the country updated with the latest laws of the game, PCB domestic playing conditions, code of conduct and clothing equipment regulations.

The workshops in Lahore and Rawalpindi will have all PCB panel umpires and match referees and will be conducted by ICC International Panel umpires Ahsan Raza and Asif Yaqoob. The workshop in Karachi will be conducted by Ahsan Raza and Bilal Qureshi, PCB Manager Umpires and Referees.
