ISLAMABAD - Former PCB Chairman breaks silence over PCB state of affairs and strongly criticised PM Imran Khan.
Former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi has alleged that the national side skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed lacks the support of the board.
Speaking to a private news channel, Sethi said that captain Sarfaraz alongside head coach Mickey Arthur are ‘insecure’ about their place in the future. “The PCB isn’t supporting the team and management the way it should be,” he said.
The former PCB head also criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan for his tweets before the Indo-Pak clash at the World Cup, saying that brought Sarfaraz under unnecessary pressure. “No matter how much cricket one has played, a PM shouldn’t be saying things to the captain publicly. If he had to say anything to him, he should have conveyed to him privately,” he said.
After losing three games in their five matches, including losing to archrivals India, Pakistan cricket team chances at the World Cup look bleak. However, with four games to go one cannot write off the most unpredictable team on the circuit.
Pakistan would now face South Africa on Sunday at Lords.
