Changing coaches will not change problems, says Misbah ul Haq

Changing coaches will not change problems, says Misbah ul Haq

Misbah ul Haq, Pakistan’s former head coach-cum-chief selector, says that tweaking the coaching panel of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on and off will not eliminate the roots of problems.

Since he stepped down as the team’s head coach, he has made his first public appearance. The 47-year old criticized the underlying problem and poor structure of the board that has no effect on it by rotating coaches.

He believes the board only hunts for results but does not look for player development that is a core element for progress. Moreover, he added that PCB always finds someone to blame after failures.

“In Pakistan, we only focus on one thing and that is the result. We don’t go beyond that and focus on things like our players and their skill development. After losing a match or series we look for someone as a scapegoat to save face,” he said.

“Nothing will change if we continue with this cosmetic surgery. You can change coaches and players but deep down the problems will remain the same,” he shared.

Notably, he stepped down from his post alongside his mate, Waqar Younis, who left the bowling coach position. The duo’s retirement came soon after the PCB on-screened its squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

It was understood as a clever step taken from the Misbah-Waqar duo to proffer all the blame falling in their laps to the new, upcoming PCB management. Waqar said as Misbah, and he joined together; hence, he followed Misbah’s footsteps of refraining from retiring duties together. It was also understood as forced retirement.

Fans believe that despite all destruction caused to Pakistan Cricket, it should have commenced till the World Cup 2021. It feels like a game to see inconsistent coaches, selectors, chairman coming and going on and off just a few days before the World Cup. Similar is the case with the players.
