Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced Misbah-ul-Haq as the Head Coach and Chief Selector of Pakistan Cricket Team. The veteran batsman will take dual responsibilities for Pakistan which might make his job a bit hectic.

Javed Miandad, former Pakistani player, showed his reservations over this decision. He feels that Misbah should have been appointed as the Assistant Coach before giving him such a huge liability.
"If the PCB wanted to benefit from Misbah's expertise, he should have been appointed as an assistant coach to a senior coach, to learn the job and then be promoted at a later date" Javed Miandad said.
There has been a mixed opinion about Misbah being the head coach. Some feel that the job is too strenuous for him to deal with. While others feel that the 45-year old is experienced enough to handle the workload.
