Asif criticizes Chairman PCB for giving the post to Hafeez. Former Test cricketer Mohammad Asif criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for appointing former captain and cricketer Mohammad Hafeez as team director and head coach.
After the poor performance of the Pakistan team in the World Cup 2023, there were massive changes in the PCB, according to which the Pakistan Cricket Board removed all the PCB‘s management staff and replaced former captain Muhammad Hafeez with Mickey Arthur. Appointed director and head coach.
On the other hand, after the meeting with Zaka Ashraf, Babar Azam announced his resignation from the captaincy of all three formats.
Later, PCB appointed Shan Masood as the Test team captain and Shaheen Afridi as the T20 team captain while the ODI team captaincy will be decided later.
It should be noted that in September, Mohammad Hafeez resigned from the PCB’s technical committee a day before the announcement of the World Cup squad due to the non-implementation of his suggestions.
Former cricketer Mohammad Asif tweeted, raising a critical question, “Someone resigned from the technical committee in September and was hired back as director of cricket and head coach in November?”
Muhammad Asif wrote in his tweet that under the influence of the current chairman, the credibility of the PCB has become zero and the board has no authority to run the affairs.
Someone resigns in Sep from technical committee and is hired back as director of cricket cum head coach in Nov? Under this chairman PCB is left with zero credibility and authority to run its affairs.
