Javed Miandad criticises Pakistan Cricket Board

Former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad criticised Pakistan Cricket Board for exhausting the national team players by making them attend camps before the tour to England.

“The number of days these players are attending these camps they will be tired out even before the tour begins. Playing in England poses a totally different challenge and definitely our team faces a stiff challenge ahead of them in Tests and ODIs. But what is regrettable is the preparations are not right just holding camps is not the answer,” said Miandad.

He questioned the absence of head coach Mickey Arthur from the boot camp and then the skills camp. “If what we are reading is true that the new coach has sent his plans to the team for implementation in the camps in his absence, then I am sorry I don’t think the Board is taking the coming tour seriously,” said the former captain.

Miandad also questioned chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq for roping in other members, who have played little international cricket, in his committee. “I don’t understand the logic behind him picking people whose experience of international cricket is limited. Why did he not pick like-minded and experienced players of his time to work with him. Is this choice of his selectors just to make it a one man selection committee?” he asked.
