Misbah and Waqar were not happy with squad: Reports

Changing coaches will not change problems, says Misbah ul Haq

A lot is coming after Misbah ul Haq and Waqar Younis have been sacked or retired from the respective positions of the head coach and bowling coach of Pakistan Cricket.

A few reports suggest that the duo retired ‘altogether’ following their dissatisfaction with the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 squad. While the other statements disfavor them uttering it as a ‘clever step’ to let go of criticism for the poor squad.

Undeniably, not even a single Pakistan Cricket fan is satisfied with the squad’s announcement that composes merit-free players. As the squad’s age average is near 26, a vast line-up believes it must have its say by Ramiz Raja who always have been raw talent’s fan. The written-behind sentence can be proved while listening to his commentary.

There is no room for space for the veterans Shoaib Malik, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, and a few others instead, the board has idolized Moin Khan’s son, Azam Khan alongside out-of-form Khushdil Shah and Asif Ali.

There are no clear and confirm stances on the T20 World Cup squad for Pakistan and Misbah, Waqar’s sudden removal as different sources indicate different plots as justification.

Undeniably, the majority of Pakistan Cricket devotees were not satisfied with Misbah and Waqar’s coaching tactics but it was not an ethical step to eliminate them off the panel. It may be their personal wish as well but their statements to prove their point are totally naive which proves that they might have been forced to leave the spots (reportedly by chairman to be).

Misbah said,

“Considering that I would have had to continue to spend considerable time away from my family and that too in a bio-secure environment, I have decided to step down from the role.”

“I understand that the timing may not be ideal, but I don’t think I am in the right frame of mind for the upcoming challenges, and it makes sense for someone fresh to step in and take the side forward.

Waqar said,

“After Misbah shared with me his decision and future plans, it was a straightforward one for me to resign as we had walked into the roles together, had worked collectively as a pair, and now also step down together.
