Former Pakistan batsman Aamir Sohail in a daring assertion mentioned that appointment of legendary batsman Younis Khan as nationwide crew’s batting marketing consultant highlights the truth that PCB realised Misbah-ul-Haq’s was not a “ok” batting coach. The 53-year-old added that many together with him had their doubts earlier as properly and located it tough to think about a batsmen telling his issues to a head coach who additionally occurs to be the chief selector.
Pakistan have received 6 of their 15 matches throughout codecs beneath the teaching of Misbah-ul-Haq since September 2019. Of their latest tour of Australia, Pakistan had been unable to win a single match as they misplaced each their Take a look at matches by an innings margin and in addition forfeited the T20I sequence with a 2-Zero margin.
“The very fact is that Misbah-ul-Haq for causes finest recognized to the PCB, was given the roles of Head Coach and Chief Selector, and he was additionally taking care of the place of batting coach. Many people commented then that this was not a good suggestion as batsmen who’re struggling in some side of their batting are unlikely to share their issues with the Batting Coach who occurs to be the Chief Selector and the Head Coach as properly.
“In that context, Younis Khan’s appointment, while recognising his expertise, is proof that the PCB are accepting the truth that they made the flawed choice by entrusting Misbah with so many roles. What the PCB are implying is that Misbah is just not a ok batting coach which is why that they had to herald somebody like Younis Khan into the image as a batting marketing consultant,” Aamir Sohail wrote in his weblog for PakPassion.web.
Aamir, who performed 47 Assessments and 157 ODIs for Pakistan, additionally marked that head coach Misbah-ul-Haq was a defensive captain throughout his taking part in days and he ought to make it possible for newly appointed limited-over captain Babar Azam doesn’t inculcate this trait from him. Below the steering of Misbah, Pakistan have misplaced 5 of their eight T20Is.
“If Babar has been recognized as Pakistan’s captain in no less than 2 codecs of the sport, then it’s incumbent upon the PCB to assist him turn into the very best captain he will be. This may be achieved by figuring out any weaknesses in his management qualities and by good mentoring. But when Misbah is to be Babar’s mentor, then we now have an issue as a result of he was himself criticised for being a defensive captain.
“The onus is on Misbah to be trustworthy about his personal deficiencies as a captain and to make it possible for Babar doesn’t make the identical errors he made, particularly in terms of ensuring that the youthful gamers are given good probabilities to make sure a brighter future for Pakistan cricket,” the Lahore-born said.

“If the T20 World Cup does happen by September, then there’s some logic to incorporate each Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik within the squad till that point, as there actually aren’t any short-term replacements able to take their place. If the T20 World Cup is moved past the tip of this 12 months, then it might make no sense to have each of those veterans related to the squad and we have to search for replacements. However sadly, we are actually in a scenario the place we weren’t far-sighted sufficient to have groomed a few of our high home performers to keep away from precisely this sort of scenario by which we discover ourselves in,” Aamir wrote in his weblog.
Pakistan crew is battling optimistic Covid-19 circumstances and attempting their finest to make it possible for the tour of England is profitable. As many as 10 Pakistan gamers from the 29-member squad have examined optimistic for the novel coronavirus until now. Being attentive to these extraordinary conditions, Aamir opined that England Cricket Board (ECB) ought to “ethically” return the favour by touring Pakistan.
“I’m happy that PCB have made the hassle to honour their FTP dedication and go to England to play the Take a look at and T20I sequence. I consider that such excursions, particularly in these troubling occasions, are essential and ship a optimistic message to the remainder of the world. It reveals that cricket boards are prepared to face by one another in robust occasions, as every has contractually binding commitments with their sponsors and broadcasters.
“So, for one cricket board to exit of their method to assist one other as Pakistan is doing is commendable and units a terrific priority for others to observe. The ECB ought to repay this favour by Pakistan and make a return tour which to me can also be the ethically right factor to do on their half. Nonetheless, for that to occur, the PCB might want to method the matter in an clever method and negotiate the problem to the satisfaction of each events,” Aamir Sohail said.
