Former Pakistani wicket-keeping skipper and current head coach of Quetta Gladiators, Moin Khan has expressed his bitter ideas about recently appointed chief selector and head coach of National Team; i.e: Misbah ul Haq. The summary of his media talk includes that Misbah should not be indulged with any of the PSL franchises.
The former cricketer told to the media that,
“Everyone can understand that would be a conflict of interest, simply. One should voluntarily step down when such conflict is there and avoid any such move because he holds a responsible post with the Pakistan cricket team.”
Moin is of the view that, Misbah, who already is coach-cum-selector of Pakistan Cricket Team, should keep himself away from PSL franchises as he already has two big roles. Misbah unofficially recently has been appointed as head coach for Islamabad United for upcoming season of PSL which is to be staged entirely in Pakistan from February 2020. It might not result in sending positive vibes to other players of other franchises of the tournament according to Moin Khan.
The PCB had said earlier that Misbah, who played international cricket as recently as in 2017, would be allowed to play a role so that he can enrich his coaching skills.
“The PCB must make sure that the way they have stopped other coaches from taking PSL roles, they should act here as well to avoid conflict of interest. The policy is applied uniformly on everyone,” he further added.
Moin has also been spotted defining his views over Misbah during the times when Sarfaraz Ahmad was sacked from captaincy of all three formats. He has said that giving two important posts to the same person might result in conflicts and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should avoid it.
