The chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Ehsan Mani believes that the head coach-cum-chief selector, Misbah ul Haq would have to face the challenging and critical questions at the conferences from now as Pakistan were not up to the mark against England.
Notably, out of three played test matches, Men in Green won none as the hosts quickly gripped the first match. With the tiring efforts put in the second and third matches, they were not so well to impress Afterall; the rain took the game ended by 1-0 for England. Either the three-match T20I series was not impressive as it got levelled by 1-1 with one match being in favour of Southampton’s cloudburst.
Misbah to face tough questions after Pakistan’s failure at England
Mani says that Misbah is also responsible for what Men in Green witness at England’s ground and he will have to answer to PCB committee. It is to be noted that the ex-test batsman was given multiple responsibilities back in 2019, and the team is still struggling to perform well in his tenure.
“I believe in empowerment, and that’s precisely why Misbah was given full authority and support. But he very much remains accountable, and as part of his appraisal process, he will be interviewed by the PCB Cricket Committee,” Mani said in an interview to Dawn.
“He will be asked to reflect on his own and team’s performances, and share his vision for the future,” he added.
“To address this problem and bring consistency in the team’s and players’ performance, the PCB has put in place a professional management team with the men’s side whose understanding of the modern game is second to none and has a clear vision of the steps required for Pakistan to perform well consistently at the international level,” Mani maintained.
