Chairman PCB Says No Hope for Pakistani Team; Looking for Another Captain
Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shahryar Khan has publicly expressed his disappointment with the team after it lost a much hyped match with India on Saturday.
“Pakistan ranks seventh in the T20 format. So the country should not pin much hope on the team,” he said speaking to a British news agency.
He said that in the match against India the team failed to grasp wickets.
Criticizing the decision to include Mohammad Sami in the squad he said, “If three fast bowlers could not help the team win, a fourth would not make things better. There should have been a spinner in the team.”
In a statement which surprised many, he openly criticized team captain Shahid Afridi. “His future is evident. After the World Twenty20 ends, we will begin looking for another captain.”
About Coach Waqar Younis he said, “His contract ends in June. We will rethink our decision over him.”
