The former Australia wicketkeeper, Steve Rixon, who handed his services as the fielding coach for Pakistan in the last couple of years hasn’t signed the deal of continuity. However, he lashed out at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for being stupid and also for the lack of professionalism.

Of late, Pakistan got criticised for their fielding standards in the Asia Cup 2018 and also for their poor catching. It put the fielding coach under the scanner despite having the great backup by the head coach, Mickey Arthur.

However, Steve Rixon himself stepped down from his role. Earlier, he cited he wants to spend some quality time with his family. Now, he highlighted the loopholes in the PCB management for the outsiders.

PCB didn’t pay on time – Steve Rixon

The former Australian quote the respective board didn’t pay the staff on time which was one of the reasons to quit. He also suggested PCB look after the outsiders in a decent way and asked to be professional.

“They didn’t pay subsidiary staff on time. Everyone was meant to go to the World Cup, which would be the sensible thing to do but not unless they improved their act,” Rixon told Fairfax Media. “[I told them], ‘you guys will make me angrier and angrier, and I don’t need it.’ I said ‘thanks, but no thanks.”

“Let’s make sure one thing is clear, the players and the coaches so forth no problems at all, thoroughly enjoyed my time,” Rixon said. “Seriously, the PCB not being a professional unit and doing things they should. If they want outsiders to the country doing the job make sure you look after them. Hence they lost myself – they’re losing good people because of their stupidity and lack of professionalism. It’s no skin off my nose. Shame because I enjoy the players and saw some fantastic things there,” he inferred.

However, this is not for the first that PCB received the flak for poor management. Recently, Misbah Ul Haq also raised his voice on poor arrangements for the domestic matches as well.
