Former batsman Mohsin Khan has heavily criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board after being commanded for the post of head coach.
The khan was among the candidates to succeed Australian Dav Whatmore, whose contract was not renewed earlier this year. Erstwhile fast bowler Waqar Younis secured the appointment on Tuesday, though.
Mohsin and Waqar were in the race for the top role and on Tuesday, the PCB appointed Waqar, who came back for a second term after his previous stint between March 2010 and August 2011.
“They put in their own home. They had stated that the prospects will be shortlisted, then in that respect will be interviews but they scrapped the whole operation and made fun of everything,” said Khan.
“They had dust in everyone’s eyes. In that location were no standards. I was a deserving candidate, but I was bringing messages that the whole operation was a total farce”. The 42-year-old Younis served as bowling coach in 2006 and 2007 and held the head coach position in 2010 and 2011.
The ions opening assignment will get a one-off Twenty20 International, three ODIs and two trials against the Australia in the United Arab Emirates between 3 October and 1 November. The 2015 World Cup campaign in Australasia, where Pakistan have been pooled with India, West Indies, Zimbabwe, UAE, South Africa and Ireland, is also high on the agenda.
“They should have picked whoever they wanted as coach and appointed him, but they should not have arrived at a jester of the others. It occurred before as well before the Asia Cup and World T20,” added Mohsin. “It happened to Waqar as well at that time.”
