Misbah ul Haq the most successful Pakistani Test captain has now announced that he is stepping down from the PCB Cricket Committee and he will immediately apply for the role of Pakistan team‘s “Head Coach“.
Misbah’s name was floating in the media previously for the position of Head Coach and there were speculations already about PCB giving him both portfolios (Head coach and Chief selector). This strategy was criticized by many and PCB also decided not to go with it. Misbah in his initial response denied that he has not applied for the role of Head Coach in a press talk.
Today Misbah said that he was surprised about his name floating in the news for the job of Head Coach as he just now made the decision to apply for the position. He also told the press that they can expect some tough competition in the selection of the Head Coach and he might well be up against good quality professionals. He said he has now made up his mind and has applied for the role.
Only time will tell if Misbah gets appointed or some other Coach is appointed.
