The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to work with recently retired players to improve the standards of cricket in Pakistan.
As reported before, PCB was actively working with Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf to take over the roles of U-19 coach and batting coach of National Cricket Academy (NCA) respectively.
However, the board could not come to an agreement with the former players. The board is now aiming to ramp up its efforts to stabilize the situation and involve these recently retired players, who understand the modern culture of cricket much better.
The sources claim that PCB has approached Misbah-ul-Haq, who is likely to play a much greater role following the World Cup 2019.
Reports also suggest that Wasim Akram will also be involved in coaching but there is no concrete news thus far.
It remains how PCB will cope with the pressure as Pakistan’s performances in the World Cup have been abysmal and all the coaches and former players are demanding changes in how cricket-related operations.
