Misbah-ul-Haq: Misbah spoke for the first time after his sudden resignation as head coach last month that “cosmetic surgery” will not change anything in Pakistan cricket, as problems are deeply ingrained in the system.
Former captain Misbah-ul-Haq said there will be no improvement in Pakistan cricket unless it changes its culture and stops chasing scapegoats.
“The problem is that in our cricket we only look at results and we don’t give time or have patience for planning ahead and improving the system,” he said on the ‘A-Sports‘ channel.
“We don’t focus on the fact that we have to develop our players at domestic level and then in the national team and work on their skill development. We want results and if we don’t get the desired results we start searching for scapegoats,” he said.
Misbah, along with bowling coach Waqar Younis. Announced a sudden resignation shortly after his return from the West Indies last month.
“Unfortunately, looking for scapegoats is a norm in Pakistan cricket. After losing a match or series we look for someone as a scapegoat to save face.
“Nothing will change if we continue with this cosmetic surgery. You can change the coaches and players but deep down the problems will remain the same,” he said.
Misbah also criticized the work of the national selection committee. And the way he had made changes to the T20 World Cup team.
“What is going on? First, you make decisions on bringing some players into the World Cup team. And then 10 days later you take a U-turn and bring back players dropped back into the fold,” he said.
After announcing a starting squad of 15 men and three reserves. Head of selection Muhammad Wasim made three changes, including former captain Sarfaraz Ahmed.
Another veteran player, Shoaib Malik, returned after an injury to hitter Sohaib Maqsood.
