PCB puts up an advertisement for new coach

Recently, former Pakistan coach Waqar Younis announced his resignation as the head coach and said that he was leaving with a “heavy heart”. Waqar’s tenure came to an end after two disappointing campaigns in the ICC World Cup 2015 and the recently concluded World T20. In both the events, Pakistan fared poorly and failed to qualify for the semi-finals. Younis’ tenure as Pakistan’s coach was marked with a lot of confusion and panic as Pakistan failed to cope up with the pressure in crunch situations.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) took to Twitter, in order to advertise for a new coach and attract potential candidates. With this announcement, the PCB has made its intention clear of attracting the most suited and committed candidate.

 

In the past, several coaches have had their fair share of issues within the Pakistani camp. Dav Whatmore’s tenure as the head coach was marked by a lot of tension as well since Pakistan struggled as a limited-overs outfit. A few players, including discarded off-spinner Saeed Ajmal, had openly slammed Whatmore in the media leading to a rift within the dressing room.

Pakistan desperately needs a coach with immense knowledge and man management skills as the team is to embark on challenging tours of England and Australia in the months to come. With their test skipper Misbah Ul Haq already above 40, they need someone in order to groom future talent and handle the individuals.

While announcing his resignation, Waqar had said, It’s time to go.” “With disappointment and pain, I would like to inform that I decide to resign as the Pakistan coach. In last 19 months of my job I was completely honest and didn’t leave any stone unturned to help the team achieve the best but unfortunately, we couldn’t get the results. “It was slightly unfair by the board the way the whole case had been handled as my report was leaked and none of the board officials tried to talk about all this. But in all this, I do not want all of you, including ex-cricketers, to forget my services to Pakistan cricket.”
