Pakistan’s head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq has been receiving all kinds of criticism in the past few days since his side was whitewashed by a supposedly second-string Sri Lanka squad in the three-match T20I series.
With doubts cast over Misbah’s ability to steer the side to safety in a crisis situation, former Australian cricketer Dean Jones has come to the 45-year-old’s rescue.
While replying to a question posed to him on Twitter regarding his interest to coach Pakistan, Jones urged the South Asian nation’s fans to give Misbah time to settle in his dual role and take charge of the team.
Jones, who reportedly was one of the applicants for Pakistan’s coaching job, argued that Misbah was a thorough professional and would do wonders for Pakistan cricket in the future. Jones previously worked with Misbah at the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Islamabad United and said the former skipper was a quality individual.
