Why Rameez Raja does not want to work with Misbah and Waqar? Everyone was searching for this answer on Monday.
With the 2021 T20 World Cup a little over a month away, departure it thead coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis resigned from their positions.
Sources told Pak Destiny that both were conveyed a message from nee PCB chairman Rameez Raja that they are no more required. After this both resigned.
Raja appointed two dummies — Saqlain Mushtaq and Abdul Razak — as head coach and bowling coach temporarily before he brings in their replacement, probably from abroad.
Both Misbah and Waqar found an honorable exit otherwise they would have been shown the door by Raja.
Raja is keen to send every one home who was appointed by his predecessor Ehsan Mani.
For face saving Misbah issued a statement saying:”The quarantine in Jamaica post the West Indies series provided me with an opportunity to reflect on the past 24 months as well as the schedule for international cricket ahead.
Considering that I would have had to continue to spend considerable time away from my family and that too in a bio-secure environment, I have decided to step down from the role.”
“I understand that the timing may not be ideal but I don’t think I am in the right frame of mind for the upcoming challenges and it makes sense for someone fresh to step in and take the side forward.
Waqar like Wasim Akram will be heading to Australia. Let’s see how Raja runes the affairs of Pakistan cricket. PAK DESTINY
