“Local Coaches Might Not Be Interested In Working With The PCB”: Misbah-ul-Haq

Misbah-ul-Haq mentioned on Saturday that both foreign and local coaches are reluctant to collaborate with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) due to its inconsistent policies.

The PCB has experienced a rapid turnover of coaches, particularly in the men’s team. The team led by Mickey Arthur was dismissed within a year of assuming control after the 2023 World Cup.

Former batsman Mohammad Hafeez currently holds the positions of team director and coach. Amidst these changes, there have been numerous shifts in the board’s leadership.

“If you look at the policies of the board, leave alone foreign coaches I don’t think even our local coaches want to work with the PCB,” Misbah told reporters.

“Pakistan cricket should not be run in such a haphazard manner and we need to have long-term plans for the team management, selectors and grooming of players. Unfortunately in Pakistan a change in the board leadership changes everything,” he said.

“I believe you can’t make a good team or groom quality players if proper time is not given for this process. We need to look at the systems of some other countries who are successful,” he added.

Misbah served as both the head coach and chief selector from 2019 to 2021, but this dual role did not yield significant results for the team.

“We should be leading the way”: Misbah-ul-Haq

Regarding Pakistan’s aspirations for the 2024 T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the USA, he expressed that they should be considered as strong contenders.

“Our players are also used to conditions in the West Indies so we should be among the front-runners.”

He also discussed the ongoing discussion about the significance of Test cricket.

“You can say the popularity of T20 cricket has affected ODI cricket but Test format will go on,” he said.

Recently, Pakistan suffered a 4-1 defeat against New Zealand in an away T20I series and is now scheduled to play against England in four T20Is starting from May 22.
