Pakistan cricket board has issues a press release on Monday about the notification of head coach for Pakistan Under 19 cricket. Former test cricketer from Sialkot Ijaz Ahmad’s name has been finalized for this position.
He has been on other major positions already in the cricket board. We should also accept the reality that if a player is too good in his cricket style or technique then it does not mean he can be so much effective in coaching the young boys. It’s the main reason, if PCB also understand it then our cricket standard can be improved.
Pakistan-A Team Coaching:
Before this appointment, Ijaz Ahmad has been serving the nation by giving his mentoring to Pakistan-A team as well as Pakistan under 19 cricket team. So, at least he has sufficient knowledge of all the grounds of Pakistan and players’ temperament.
In 2010, Ijaz Ahmad also took a temporary or short term charge as head coach for Pakistan’s men team. He was serving as assistant coach prior this notification. Ijaz has a vast experience in Pakistan cricket team. He has played with great legends of cricket, i.e Imran Khan and Wasim Akram.
At least the fighting spirit he can transfer in the boys. This quality has proved to be the most effective is every format of cricket.
