Pakistan’s performance is reflecting the off-field turbulence: Ramiz Raja

After the Babar Azam-led team was defeated by New Zealand in an ODI series, Ramiz Raja, a former Pakistan cricketer, accused the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) of disturbing the national team.

After the third ODI ended on Friday in Karachi, Raja stated that the Pakistani side was suffering from off-the-field problems.

Raja said on his own YouTube account, “Unfortunately, the on-field performance is reflecting the instability off-field.

Although the team already has a coach, you went to Mickey Arthur and publicly stated that we are bringing foreign coaches because Pakistani coaches are bad and get engaged in politics. During a series, they sought a foreign coach, who eventually informed them he was unavailable.

“Even if you want a change, these things are intended to take place internally, behind the scenes. While doing it softly, you show your coach respect. However, going against a coach in this way kills his enthusiasm and motivation, adding to the pressure the team was already under.

Mickey Arthur is the favorite to become the head coach of the national team, according to Najam Sethi, chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Management Committee, who made the suggestion last month.

Former off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq is in charge of the coaching staff for the Pakistani men’s cricket team, and Mohammad Yousuf is in charge of the batting department.

Sethi told the reporters in Lahore, “Our local superstars and former players will be employed, we will care after them and provide them jobs, but they won’t be coaching the squad.”

“We had Mickey Arthur when I was in charge, and the consequences were clear. We won the Champions Trophy and ranked first in the world in both ODI and Test cricket.

The appointment of Arthur, however, was “proving difficult to materialize for different reasons on both sides,” according to a statement made by PCB a few days prior.

However, the PCB went on to say that it would “continue its hunt for the ideal person to fit the post of national team head coach and several prominent names are already under consideration.”
