Cricket commentator and former Pakistan player Bazid Khan has recommended the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to appoint a ‘low profile’ coach for the Pakistan cricket team instead of a big name.
In an interview published in Urdu Daily Jang, Bazid said that high profile coaches are not accountable since several lucrative offers are always on their table. He said that a low profile coach will be accountable to the PCB and the media and will put in more effort for the betterment of the team.
He said that Pakistan has been struggling in one day internationals and tests for a number of years and it would be unwise to carry on with current head coach Mickey Arthur.
He lamented that performance of Shadab Khan, Fakhar Zaman and Hassan Ali have all dipped since Pakistan’s 2017 ICC Champions Trophy triumph where the trio played a key role.
Bazid was also critical of the lack of planning of team management and said that the team management was only able to put together a winning combination after defeats to West Indies, India and Australia.
He also called for reforms in the domestic structure and said that the board has to invest more money in the domestic set up.
