Islamabad (Pak Destiny) Najam Sethi’s appointees like Moin Khan and Waqar Younis are ruining the Pakistan cricket.
A new hand-picked PCB chairman Sheharyar Khan has no say in the team affairs and is doing whatever he is ordered by his boss Sethi.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the patron-in-chief of PCB, is primarily responsible for decline in the Pakistan cricket as like in the PCB he is hiring people on key posts for the people who had served the “Sharif family by one way or any other” in the past.
Sethi has nothing to do with cricket but Sharif appointed him for his services for the PML-N government. Since the court has ousted Sethi he has become a “puppet master” in the PCB and the poor Sheharyar Khan is happy to have tours with the team and his powers go nothing beyond.
Three tainted former cricketers – Moin, Waqar and Mushtaq – are in PCB on important positions like chief selector, coach and bowling coach, respectively. All three were accused of match fixing in the past.
The way Pakistan lost the third ODI to Australia yesterday in UAE, it appears the three did their work to get the “desired result”. Tthere is need to investigate who is in line with bookies these days.
Well done the trio and the PCB for their excellent work under the leadership of defacto chairman Najam Sethi. — Pak Destiny
