Shoaib Akhtar launched a scathing criticism of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), a day after Pakistan’s U19 staff suffered a stunning 10-wicket defeat at the palms of India within the U19 World Cup semifinal. Describing efficiency by Pakistan’s U19 staff as “immature”, Akhtar stated that Pakistan Cricket Board wants to make investments cash and assets at disposal for the development of cricket at age group stage within the nation. Speaking in a video on his Youtube channel, Akhtar stated: “Indian U19 staff was so mature as a result of they’ve a mature coach. They received India’s finest center-order batsman Rahul Dravid for the teaching function in U19 staff. When you get an enormous man, you want to pay him large as properly. Here, Younis Khan went to take the job, the PCB supplied him a job, after which they’re bargaining with him. ‘15 lakh nahi, 13 lakh le lo’. He stated ‘take it back’. Is that the way you deal with your stars?”
Akhtar additional stated that former Pakistan gamers reminiscent of him, Mohammad Yousuf and Younis Khan can be utilized in teaching roles for the youth groups within the nation. “There is Mohammad Yousuf, Younis Khan, I am here, just ask us. We will help the team. You think if we were a part of U19 coaching staff, the team would have performed like this?”
He added: “For big jobs, you need to get a big guy. I am not begging for a job here. This felt so bad. Our team looked immature. Their U19 team looked like their senior team. Why? For five years, they have had the same coach – Rahul Dravid.”
Akhtar additional added that the board wants to make investments cash if they need to get an enormous participant as coach. “You have to give one thing to the man who’s leaving the whole lot behind. Yahan kehte hain 10 lakh le lo tum. Who will take the teaching job then? Those who will agree, they may present such requirements.”
Akhtar additional stated that PCB wants to take a lesson or two from BCCI, who created a 15-year-plan, and invested cash to enhance cricket within the nation. “BCCI has invested within the U19 staff. They made a 15-year plan. They introduced Jagmohan Dalmiya, N Srinivasan – who introduced funding, cricket, and IPL. Then, cherry on the highest, they convey Sourav Ganguly at the helm. Who did we get? Pata nahi kaun Mani sahab,” he stated.
“Andrew Strauss ran England Cricket. South Africa cricket is now being handled by Graeme Smith. And here, Pakistan veteran cricketers are running YouTube channels,” he stated. “I do this for fun’s sake. But I don’t need to do it. My fans want to listen to me. But, still it is very painful.”
“There are some people who do not want PCB to get good players in the team. But if you don’t, the situation will remain the same. We looked very immature team – bad fielding, technical faults, poor bowlers,” Akhtar signed off.
