Misbah and others also complained to Imran that Pakistan’s domestic cricket departmental teams were being cornered. And then the Pakistan Cricket Board became very angry with Misbah.
In September last year, the responsibility of the chief selector and the head coach of the Pakistan team was handed over to former Pakistan cricketer Misbah-ul-Haq. Misbah stepped down as chief selector. Misbah-ul-Haq told a press conference in Lahore on Wednesday that this time he only wants to focus on coaching the Pakistan team!
But not now. Misbah-ul-Haq will resign as the chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team from November 30. “I will select the team for Pakistan in the upcoming series against Zimbabwe,” he said. But then I will only handle the responsibility of the head coach. In addition to this, Misbah made it clear that his decision to step down from the selectors was entirely personal, not the pressure of the board.
“It’s just my personal decision,” Misbah said. I was forced to make this decision because it is not possible to spend time on two high profile jobs at once. As the head coach of the Pakistan team, I want to give my best. Now, no matter who comes as the new selector, I will help the national team as much as possible.
Last month, Misbah met with former Pakistan captain and current Prime Minister Imran Khan. In addition to Imran and Misbah, former cricketers like Azhar Ali and Mohammad Hafeez were also present at the meeting. During the meeting, they discussed the future of Pakistan’s domestic cricket. Misbah and others also complained to Imran that Pakistan’s domestic cricket departmental teams were being cornered.
