Inzamam-ul-Haq Backs One Captain Policy Across All Formats
Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq has asserted the national team needs a skipper, who can lead the side across all three formats, in a bid to setup a formidable team in future.
“I haven’t given any advice to the PCB over the captaincy issue but I think the perfect man for the job is one who can lead in all three formats,” Inzamam was quoted as saying by Dawn.com.
Inzamam, former Pakistan captain, briefed the media gathering in Lahore after Pakistan’s dismal show against New Zealand (2-0) followed by Australia, which came to an end by losing the three-match Test series 3-0 and five-match One-Day International series by 4-1.
However, his statement is being seen as an advice for Pakistan Test skipper to step down as the long format Test captain after the recent hammering in series Down Under.
“I was the one who selected the squad for the [Australia] tour, but coaches and captains were also given their say in the matter. We took several steps before sending the team to New Zealand and Australia and sent the best bunch of players,” Inzamam remarked.
Inzamam has also hinted the national side might see major overhauling for their next fixture against the West Indies, before terming Misbah is in ‘best state’ to decide about his Test future.
“Misbah is a very intelligent man and he is in the best position to take a decision about his future,” Inzamam said on Misbah.
Inzamam said he is also looking forward to the second edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) to pick the best players for the Caribbean tour. PSL will start from February 9.
“It will give us the opportunity to check out the best players and select a good team for the tour of the West Indies. “Fitness remains a problem for the team and we’re taking steps to improve it,” he Concluded.
The 42-year-old batsman Misbah has been criticized after the losses against New Zealand and Australia. Misbah also led Pakistan to No. 1 spot in ICC Test Rankings last year.
