ISLAMABAD – Former Check cricketer Sarfraz Nawaz has urged Prime Minister Imran Khan to cease Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) high-ups from appointing all of the licensed tainted individuals at high-profile slots.
Speaking to The Nation, Sarfraz, who’s inventor of reverse swing bowling, stated: “As a patron-in-chief PCB, former captain and world cup winner, the PM should intervene to regular the sinking ship of the PCB and made appointments purely on benefit. I get information from totally different circles that PCB Cricket Committee assembly is scheduled for August 2, by which MD Wasim Khan will take main selections.
“I hope Imran Khan will intervene and ensure no tainted individual might get any position with Pakistan cricket workforce. Moin Khan, Wasim Akram and Inzamam are often known as tainted individuals.
They’d inflicted large damages on nationwide trigger. Why PCB is hesitating in appointing folks like Abdul Qadir, who had a neat and clear previous as chief selector and he can present justice to the deserving gamers. Nepotism has performed havoc with Pakistan cricket and already careers of a large number of kids had been destroyed. However hopefully, the PM received’t permit extra injustices with our youth,” he added.
Sarfraz stated: “I feel Younus Khan needs to be the top coach of Pakistan nationwide workforce. He was sensible participant, superior captain and is aware of modern-day cricket necessities.
I really feel he’s one of the best alternative for Mickey Arthur. Whereas for Check captaincy, I strongly suggest Azhar Ali, who’s the only option, as he’s scoring runs in England and has the expertise to steer and his place within the Check workforce is safe. Babar Azam have to be named as his deputy.”
He stated all these, who had performed with the futures of Pakistani youth and soiled position previously and nonetheless someway concerned within the current setup, have to be proven the doorways. “Appointing a fragile captain will serve no function to PCB nor the nationwide workforce. Wasim Khan should take daring selections within the curiosity of Pakistan cricket. He shouldn’t hesitate to stamp out his authority. The mafia sitting within the board received’t let him work freely, until he dictates phrases and it is just attainable by means of fearless throughout the board accountability.
“Pakistan cricket can’t afford any additional delays in appointment of native coaches. I like to recommend PCB ought to cease trying to find worldwide coaches and assist employees. Pakistan had produced numerous greats, who’re greater than able to producing wonders for nationwide workforce, like they did throughout their taking part in days,” he added.
Sarfraz stated it baldy hurts to see Pakistan workforce on a continuing decline. “Now we have sensible kids, greatest services and infrastructure, however we simply want to offer youth their due proper whereas benefit should maintain key to choice.
“Pakistan cricket will proceed to undergo until tremendous flops like Mickey Arthur, Grant Flower and Azhar Mehmood are proven the doorways. Actually, Flower has baldy destroyed the strategy of Pakistani batsmen, whereas identical is the case with Azhar. Pakistan bowling was at all times our fundamental weapon, however ever since Azhar was given position with the nationwide workforce, our bowling has gone from dangerous to worse. I hope Imran Khan will reside as much as expectations and received’t permit PCB to nominate tainted individuals in any capability,” Sarfraz concluded.
