Following the recently concluded ICC World Cup, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq has decided to step down from his charge. Meanwhile, the contract of head coach, Mickey Arthur has also run out and he has been asked to re-submit his application for the post.
While it is yet to be decided who will be the next head coach of Pakistan, batting legend Javed Miandad has advocated hiring a local in the position, as only a player well-acquainted with the country’s cricketing system can develop a strong team.
Miandad believes that the current coach has failed to deliver after Pakistan failed to qualify for the semifinals of the 2019 Cricket World Cup hence changes in Pakistan team and coaching staff are necessary to put the team back on the right track.
“If greats like Sir Viv Richards or Sir Ian Terence Botham were brought to the task then one can understand what calibre they can bring in Pakistan cricket, otherwise foreign coaches cannot carry on with our players,” he said.
