PCB Chairman Shahryar Khan terms Javed Miandad a flop coach

ISLAMABAD  – Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shahryar Khan has briefed National Assembly standing committee on Inter provincial coordination over the affairs of the cricket board.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar Khan has on Thursday said Misbah-ul-Haq is better captain than Imran Khan in his briefing to the National Assembly (NA) Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination.

According to details, PCB chief was strongly criticized by the members of NA Standing Committee over poor performance of the cricket team, but Shahryar Khan did not remain on defensive mode at all and gave aggressive replies to all the questions which led to a heated discussion.

When Muttahida Quami Movement’s (MQM) Majid Ali declared Javed Miandad ‘the cricket academy’, Shahryar Khan responded that Miandad was given chance during India tour but he failed as coach.

Shahryar declared Miandad a ‘flop coach’ but seemed satisfied with the performance of Mickey Arthur, the current head coach of Pakistan team. He said PCB has decided to try new coaches and players.

Shahryar Khan told the standing committee that India had to play six bilateral series with Pakistan under the MoU that it signed with PCB in 2014.

Out of these six series, he continued, three of them could not be played due to breach of agreement by India, and PCB has suffered a lot financially.
