LAHORE: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) debunked studies claiming that head coach Misbah ul Haq is being changed by former Zimbabwe cricketer Andy Flower after Pakistan’s failed sequence in opposition to the Proteas, Jang reported on Friday.
PCB CEO Waseem Khan instructed reporters that Flower is busy for the following two years and the board has not signed any settlement with him.
“The news of Misbah’s removal holds no truth. No deal has been signed with anyone.”
The PCB chief added that Gary Christine can also be not obtainable for the time being.
“We have made everything clear to Misbah in the last committee meeting. His performance will be reviewed after the South Africa series in the meeting scheduled to be held on February 15 or 16.”
Khan mentioned the board wished to provide Misbah “one more chance”, including that though he and Waqar Younis signed a three-year contract, the settlement could possibly be ended earlier than time.
On Wednesday, former pacer Shoaib Akhtar had claimed that PCB has provided the teaching job to Andy Flower to interchange head coach Misbah-ul-Haq.
According to Geo Super, Akhtar, making the declare on his YouTube channel, mentioned that Flower will take over after season six of Pakistan Super League (PSL) is over.
“PCB has already offered Andy Flower the head coach job. He is not accepting it due to his coaching commitment with Multan Sultans. But once PSL is over, he’ll take over,” Akhtar mentioned. “The choice to sack Misbah is already taken. They usually are not giving him any likelihood.”
Misbah and bowling coach Waqar Younis had appeared earlier than PCB Cricket Committee to elucidate the latest sequence losses in opposition to New Zealand. The teaching duo was given a reprieve on account of accidents and issues attributable to the pandemic.
The board has scheduled one other Cricket Committee assembly following the South Africa sequence, giving the teaching workers a lifeline.
“It’s all lies! The whole performance review thing after the South Africa series is not true. They have already signed a contract with Flower,” Akhtar mentioned.
