Former Pakistan pacer Aaqib Javed, who is currently the head coach of PSL franchise Lahore Qalandars, is of the opinion that Misbahul Haq isn’t suitable for the head coach role of the Men in Green.
While speaking to reporters in Lahore, Javed said that even a school team won’t give Misbah the responsibility of coaching the side.
“Waqar Younis and Misbahul Haq had no coaching experience but they were still given the roles with the national side. People who took this decision should be held accountable,” said Javed, who was part of Pakistan’s 1992 World Cup winning side.
“Looking at Misbah’s coaching, I don’t think even a school will give him this job,” he added. “Professional coaches should be with the team, only then the situation will improve.”
He also brushed aside the notion that he wants to join the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s coaching setup.
“I will never coach the Pakistan team because there is lack of respect for individuals in the current PCB system,” he said.
He also urged PCB to take serious action for the betterment of the country’s cricket, sooner rather than later.
“Wasim Khan and company don’t take into account the ground realties, which is why there are many administrative issues within the PCB,” he said.
“If the board does not take steps for the betterment of Pakistan cricket, our cricket will suffer the same fate as hockey,” he added.
