PCB is considering to terminate head Coach, bowling Coach, Team Manager, and other responsible officials after the worst defeat by India at Manchester.
According to a private TV Channel, Mickey Arthur, Talat Ali, Azhar Mahmood may be terminated immediately, while Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed’s future is uncertain still. Crucial decisions would be made for the sake of cricket future in Pakistan as the team comes back to home.
Pakistan has scope to come back, Sarfaraz must do something
Ex-skipper Moeen Khan has said that Skipper Sarfraz Ahmad should focus his attention to eliminate grouping within the team.
Talking to media Moeen Khan said that Sarfraz has to show his ability as a Skipper otherwise he has to go home.
Moeen said that Pakistan can win the World Cup despite of the fact the team did not give the expected result in previous matches. Pakistan got many defeats in 1992 initial matches but after that Pak team won the Cup.
Moeen said that Sarfraz will have to win all rest of the matches to come back in the great event.
No Need to Change Coach or Selector, expand First Class Cricket: Wasim Akram
Ex-Skipper Wasim Akram has suggested not to change coach and selector.
Talking to a private Tv Channel he said that Pakistan needs to focus and expand First Class Cricket at home ground. We can get new talent only by expanding First Class Cricket, Wasim said. India got all talent from his First Class Cricket at local grounds. Pakistan will have to spend a special amount each month to promote cricket at the local level.
A Mechanism to Select the Players:
There should be a mechanism to pick up the player for international matches. If a player continuously performs well in first-class cricket, then he should be given the opportunity to represent green cap. But unfortunately, here after hitting a maiden century or fast fifty any one can jump into the ground and start representing Pakistan.
That’s the reason we lack of technical skills and proper planning when we face big competition with top teams of the world.
After reading the feedbacks from the senior players and officials of PCB we come at a conclusion that we have talent but it needs to be polished first.
Following counter strategies can improve the performance:
- Our players are not technically sound. They should have proper stamina to play under pressure.
- How will the players learn to play under pressure? That’s a big question for our officials. Its strategy should be to let the players play with different teams at the local level.
- Practice matches should be recorded in PCB records. Each player ought to know that their performance is being recorded officially. In this way, each match will be taken seriously. Each match will have its own pressure. And that’s what we need our players to deal with.
- Inconsistency has been a major problem for the failure in Pak cricket team. So, to overcome the problem, our boys must be communicated clearly, to prove their eligibility several times. If we make a standard to pick up players on a single performance, then in the next 5 years we will still be seeking new talent. And we will lack of match-winning players.
