Misbah-ul-Haq stepped down from the role of Pakistan chief selector and will continue for the head coach. His decision came after holding the role for the national team for over an year. The former Pakistan captain will however continue to coach the side with his next assignment against Zimbabwe.
Former Pakistan fast bowler Aaqib Javed is unhappy with the decision taken by Misbah as he believes that he should have quit as the head coach. Javed also mentioned that the decision taken by the head coach is a big mistake.
Keeping Misbah on as the head coach instead of as the chief selector was a big mistake: Javed
Javed believes that keeping Misbah as the head coach is a big mistake as the former captain is better suited in the role of the chief selector. He also mentioned that Misbah does not have a great future in terms of coaching and cited past examples which had failed miserably.
“Keeping Misbah on as the head coach instead of as the chief selector was a big mistake. The former captain is better suited in the role of chief selector. Misbah does not have a great future in terms of coaching. In the past, experiments like these have failed miserably. We might be headed towards further destruction,” Javed told Express News.
“They first made a mistake by appointing Misbah in the dual role and now they have made the second mistake by keeping him as the head coach instead of as the chief selector. He is aware of the talent pool of youngsters. He could have found new talent by watching their matches and performances. Nobody in the world appoints an individual as the head coach for a national side without any prior experience,” he added.
Misbah is set to pick up squads for the home series against Zimbabwe as well as the tour of New Zealand in December as a part of his next assignment.
