In the heated debate over who should be the next head coach of Pakistan, legendary batsman Javed Miandad believes the team needs practical trainers and not laptop coaches to meet the challenges of international cricket.
Miandad believes someone who can work with young players on the ground can remove their weaknesses more effectively than someone who uses modern technology and methodologies.
Miandad did not speak against the usage of advanced training methods but was of the view that ground realities should not be ignored.
To reinstate his belief, he suggested Wasim Akram as an ideal candidate to serve as the head coach of the national cricket team.
"Look the world is availing the expertise of Wasim Akram and our other players as they tell their players practically through demonstrations on how to remove faults and improve performance. Their tips are doing wonders. So, if other nations are availing their expertise why can't we ourselves benefit from our former greats cricketers?" Miandad asked.
