Pakistan legend, Javed Miandad, has stated that he was the main driving force behind Imran Khan during his election campaign which paved the way for the latter’s ascent to power.
Miandad claimed in a YouTube video, that Imran Khan has appointed inept individuals in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after becoming the Prime Minister. As a result, cricketers have lost their jobs.
Javed said that Pakistan is full of talented persons and there is no need to hire people from abroad to run the affairs of the cricket board, adding that no one could hold them accountable if they are to flee the country after corruption in the PCB.
Furthermore, Javed has shown displeasure over the incident involving Sarfraz Ahmed, the 2017 Champions Trophy-winning captain, performing duty as the 12th man.
People around the world have disliked the incident. I had also captained the national team and I feel disappointed as Sarfraz should have been accorded respect as a former captain. I would like to ask this to the management and the Cricket Board, if there is no need of a senior player then he should be sent back. This was not a good precedent to set for the future.
Finally, Javed said that Pakistan hasn’t lost the Test series yet, adding that Green-shirts need to sort out their mistakes in the coming matches.
Winning or losing is part of the game. Don’t worry, just identify and rectify the mistakes you have done and try to avoid them in the future.
