Pakistan cricket team’s interim coach Saqlain Mushtaq says it is a bit harsh to say Misbahul Haq and Waqar Younis ‘ran away’.
We shouldn’t talk like this, he said, clarifying that he will not be commenting on the resignations of both coaches.
Mushtaq’s comments come a day after former Pakistani coaches Misbahul Haq and Waqar Younis stepped down from their roles after developing differences with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) over the selection of the squad for the T20 World Cup.
Commenting on the resignations, former cricketer Shoaib Akhtar had lashed out at them for ‘running away’ from responsibilities.
Mushtaq’s focus, however, he said, is not on what happened yesterday, but what will happen tomorrow. ‘I am looking after the task given to me to improve Pakistan cricket,’ he said.—APP
