Ex-Pak cricketers, officials oppose Mohsin's replacement with Whatmore as team coach
Islamabad, Feb 28 (ANI): Former Test cricketers and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials have opposed the decision of replacing Mohsin Khan with former Australian cricketer Dav Whatmore as head coach.
"The results speak for themselves. Mohsin worked under me in different coaching roles and fulfilled his role well. He has once again proved to be an asset for Pakistan cricket because he handled the team in a professional manner," The Express Tribune quoted former PCB chief Khalid Mehmood, as saying.
"There were no controversies during his tenure, which is unusual for Pakistan cricket, and is also evidence of his competency. I oppose the decision because nobody changes a winning combination. Mohsin's also improved his performance in subsequent tours," he added.
The former PCB chief feared that with the board reportedly giving a dominant role to Whatmore, there were chances of infighting in the team.
"Mohsin made a good rapport with the captain [Misbahul Haq]. A captain has a key role and if the coach is given more power, then there are chances of discord within the team," Mehmood added.
Former Test cricketer Shoaib Mohammad, who thought the team found a new rhythm under Mohsin, criticised the PCB's move, saying that it was an attempt to take credit away from Mohsin for Pakistan's impressive show.
"There was a change in the mindsets of players, especially the batsmen. I noticed a spark in the team that was missing before a coach should get the due credit and the PCB has not done that with Mohsin," Shoaib added. (ANI)
