In the last couple of months, a lot of retired Pakistani players have urged the team management to get rid of selfish players in order to make progress. Two former captains Rashid Latif and Rameez Raja have joined the list to advise the newly appointed head coach Micky Arthur to  get rid of ‘selfish’ players in the team.

Latif said that Arthur is an experienced coach but he should slow down a bit with his statements in the media.

“Too many statements from the new coach and he is speaking on every cricket issue related to Pakistan cricket. He is an experienced international coach but he should slow down a bit with his statements and first come and see first hand the challenges he faces with the Pakistan team,” Latif told PTI.

Latif said that Arthur’s statements will raise the hopes to a great extent and he might come under fire if he fails to deliver.

“There are a lot of hopes from Arthur but he should not raise the expectations because he might not know this but Pakistani cricket fans and authorities can be very unforgiving if he can’t turn things around,” Latif said.

“I have always felt that a foreign coach who keeps a low profile is best suited for Pakistan cricket. In the end, the results matter nothing else matters.”

 

Former captain Rameez  Raja also advised Arthur to be ready to face an entirely different cricket culture in Pakistan.

“He is a solid experienced coach who has worked with two top teams and top players but he will really have to be innovative and firm to pick up the performances of the Pakistan team,” he said.

Echoing Latif’s sentiments, Rameez said that the key to excel with the Pakistani team is to axe the selfish players and encourage those who were courageous enough to play for the team, not themselves.

Rameez also felt that Pakistan team need a leader who can lead from the front and motivate players.He said identifying and grooming the right leader would be a prime responsibility for Arthur.
