According to some reliable reports, Pakistan’s veteran fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar, is not in link with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). It was speculated that the bowler and PCB met recently for discussing the new post. Also, it was speculated that he might become the chief selector for the board.
In fact, the news has been surrounding for a day after Faizan Lakhani posted on his twitter that the board and the ex-bowler have met. Shoaib himself wrote that PCB is in contact with him but the things are not confirmed yet.
The former player is ready to serve his homeland as he says that he will be looking for the post.
Reports: Shoaib Akhtar not linked with PCB for any post
“Yes, I and PCB are in contact for a post but nothing is finalized yet,” Akhtar shared. “See, I am ready to serve Pakistan’s cricket once again with a completely changed mindset,” he added.
Earlier, he was on the agenda for becoming the coach of the High-Performance Center (HPC) but some other prominent cricketers were chosen instead. Also, Shahid Afridi was supposed to have a hold on some post in the national board but a source from the board has denied the spreading news.
After Misbah ul Haq has been occupying multiple posts in PCB, it has subjected him to high criticism. As the performance of the team is not impressive for the last few series, he might be sacked from any of his posts and a new candidate is soon to uphold the position. The policy of the national board does not allow a single person to serve his services in more than one department.
