    Mohammad Akram sacked as Bowling Coach

    The PCB have sacked Mohammad Akram as the bowling coach and he will now work as a selector and also as the Head Coach at the National Cricket Academy.

    Akram was appointed on a 2 year contract recently by Zaka Ashraf, but finds himself ousted after Pakistan's disappointing World T20 performance.

    Take back one role, put him in two roles instead.

    He has 2 more years based on his contract thanks for Mr. . PCB will have to pay him a lot if they break the contract. I"m sure he will be kicked for good once his time it is up. At least he is not with the team anymore keeping the fact in mind that WC is around the corner. I think it's good for now isn't it?

    What's with PCB sacking people and then giving them a higher role tho? :moakram
    Why are we seeing him become the head coach of the NCA? Now there's no chance of a bowler to emerge either

    Very happy day for Pakistan. Sort of like EID!

    But .. he's going to ruin the other bowlers trying to hit international stage at NCA!!!

    Very poor decision, should've been sacked from PCB! guess he got really strong connections.

    It doesnt matter if he is "promoted" to the selection committee or whatever they call it these days. The fact of the matter is, Md Akram was seriously lacking the skill to psychologically lift our fast bowlers. I don't blame his credentials. It's all about, either u got it or not! He was the later.

    None, I say none of the quickies were lethal as they were back when Waqar was coaching them.

    Good move for the fast bowlers

    Sack him as bowling coach from the national team.

    Make him bowling coach at the NCA?

    So basically, he's not good enough for our seniors BUT he's trusted with developing our youngsters into world class bowlers? How does this even make sense for the PCB?

    Probably PCB has to pay him a lot if they terminate his contract.

    So there is probably an understanding between him and PCB.

    If that's so, sensible decision by PCB considering WC 2015 is just 1 year away and a good bowling coach is needed.

    Once his contract is over, he will be well and truly thrown out.

    We put too much stock in bowling coaches. Pakistan has been equally bad or good with and without bowling coaches.
    In Akrams case, they are going to make better use of him elsewhere as waqar is likely to be reappointed as coach.

    The only job PCB should pay him for is coaching an opposition team.

    The guy have two jobs with PCB now and will make more money.

    Is this sacking, or promotion?

    Lahore April 25, 2014: The services of Pakistan Team's bowling coach Mohammad Akram have been placed at the disposal of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Lahore where he will start work as Head Coach with immediate effect.

    The decision was made by PCB management in consultation with Mohd Akram in order to strengthen grass roots cricket through additional training camps and procedures for upcoming youngsters. Mohd Akram brings with him international experience which will help strengthen the NCA systems.

    Mohd Akram will also work as a member of the National Selection Committee and in future, if required, may also tour with Pakistan teams as bowling coach.

    His transfer is part of the restructuring plans of coaches and support staff currently underway with a view to optimising the resources at hand. Mohd Akram's input and expertises in overseeing camps at various levels in Pakistan will be of immense help to our evolving cricket structure.

    Akram going to coach upcoming youngster.....

    Are you kidding me this man is now going to ruin our upcoming bowlers!
    The PCB has relieved Mohammad Akram from the role of national bowling coach only to appoint him as head coach of the national cricket academy (NCA).

    The PCB said in a statement that the decision was taken "in consultation with Mohammad Akram in order to strengthen grass-roots cricket through additional training camps and procedures for upcoming youngsters". He will work with the national team, the statement said, whenever required.

    Akram has also been drafted into a six-man selection committee, headed by Moin Khan, along with former wicketkeeper Saleem Yousaf and batsmen Shoaib Mohammad, Ijaz Ahmed and Wajahatullah Wasti.

    Akram, earlier this year, had signed a two-year contract as bowling coach but was facing an uncertain fate with the coaching panel as another former fast bowler Waqar Younis was expected to roll in as head coach of the national team. Now the PCB abolished the role of bowling coach.

    The PCB has also announced a six-man selection committee, inducting Wasti who has been working as head coach of departmental team ZTBL and Yousaf, who has been working in the customs department in an executive post.

    Shoaib was the fielding coach with Pakistan during the Asia Cup and World T20, while Ijaz is the NCA's fielding coach.

    For Yousaf and Shoaib, this is their second stint as a selector, having been involved in 2003 when the committee was headed by Aamir Sohail. Wasti, who last played for Pakistan in 2000, has been coaching on the domestic circuit since he retired from playing in 2010.

    The PCB setup has been in extensive transition after the Zaka Ashraf regime. The newly-announced selection committee will be the first full-time panel in the last 10 months after Iqbal Qasim decided to not renew his contract - since then, an interim selection panel has been functioning.

    The new selection committee effectively replaces a trio of long-serving members - Azhar Khan, Saleem Jaffar and Farukh Zaman - who had been engaged in selection affairs since 2007.

    The selection committee's first assignment will be to pick the squad for the Sri Lanka tour in August this year, following the upcoming summer camp from May 6 to June 6 in Lahore.
