    It's just a rumor at the moment. But signs are evident that he'll get an important post. I really hope to have professionals at every level. May be he can work as a "Mentor"

    How can a guy who was part of the team that sacked Mickey Arthur and at the same time be a candidate as head coach?

    Only in Pakistan

    If they want to give job to Misbah (who doesn't even have any experience in coaching and he was against Babar/Shaheen in the team) why PCB adverting for a coach with 3 years of experience?
    Instead PCB should just appoint coaches whom they want.
    Looks like the 23rd August application deadline is just for show.

    I think most people are against his appointment as coach due to his performance as one day captain where he refused to adopt the modern approach. But he will do well in test arena.

    He should only be an assistant coach or perhaps the head coach of one of the new domestic teams.

    That way he would gain experience as well.

    As a selector though, I'm not sure.

    It will not work for us for sure. Misbah will destroy current and near future young prospects and even 2023 World Cup we may field Gul, Rahat, Ajmal, Azhar, Malik, Hafeez, Faisal Iqbal, Kamran, Sami, Farhat captain by Salman Butt.

    What if it's a foreign coach in the future ? Will he be given a say in selection matters? Anyway miggy Bhai the idea itself is ok but I don't Misbah is the right man for the job.

    Assuming this is going ahead, safe to safe we were better off:

    - Without Imran Khan getting involved with Pakistan cricket
    - Without Wasim Khan
    - With Najam Sethi, as opposed to Ehsan Mani
    - With Mickey Arthur as Head Coach
    - With Inzy as CS

    Mark my words, this will be the worst appointment in Pakistan's cricketing history.

    It was no surprise to find him way off-the mark with his insight on Shaheen earlier this year, so much so he to admit his blunder during the WC in an interview.

    The reason why his incompetency doesn't surprise me is because he had the same mindset as captain of the side. He has always had a phobia for younger players in the Pakistan team due to his appetite for seniors.

    You will see a lot more cock-ups with him in this role. I hope this is fake news but there comes a time when you can distinguish between what is inside information and what is bogus. With this rumour I strongly believe it's the former, so if they do proceed with this dual appointment then Wasim Khan, Imran Khan and Ehsan Mani all need to hang their heads in shame!

    Would hardly be the worst appointment ever. I would prefer somebody like Mike Hesson or Dean Jones but Misbah would not be a bad choice either.

    The point is Misbah was the chief culprit as the captain for both of those Pakistan's failures in 2013. @Slim is quite right to reference these two events because it was at this point, when Misbah's time was up.

    Mickey was a far less player than Misbah, but there are many far lesser players than the latter who have a better cricket brain than him.

    You only have to cast your mind back to the last Australia tour, when Ian Chappell and the rest of the Channel 9 commentary team exposed Misbah's lack of cricketing intelligence.

    This is just proves you have no respect for cricket nor do you care about Pakistan's best interests, otherwise you wouldn't stop watching cricket just because your main man was no longer a feature of the team.

    I could perhaps understand if Misbah was one of the greats of the game but he's not even close - as a matter of fact he's one of the most limited cricketers I have seen play for Pakistan on a technical and tactical level.

    No player has done more damage to Pakistan cricket than he has, yet your decision to watch cricket solely relies on his participation

    I love the fact that now misbah can select the domestic performers and doesnt have to just get approval of someone.

    I remember this guy in the early days wanted asif ali im t20 in palce of umar. Yet he was not listend to. Few years after inzi and arthur come along and they select asif ali. Why?
    Because misbah again selected asif for ISB united. Even there the selectors said no to asif. But this guy still forced the selection.

    Asif performs and then gets selected in to pakistan team by arthur and inzi.

    Than there was the case of ayub dogar. The guy was milking runs. Misbah tried his best to get him for south africa series. But PCB said no.
    Then another series came and he again requested for Ayub. The selector than selected Dogar but they also added faisal iqbal just to mess with the team.

    Misbah got banned in a match and he plays Ayub in place of his own. Faisal iqbal kept ranting about it on twitter till this day .

    Than there was that spinner controversy where Misbah begged the selectors to please send a back up spinner for UAE. The idiot selectors didnt listen.

    They go to UAE and i think it was yasir shah who got injured. Misbah again pleaded them to send a back up. Now here was the controversy. There were rumours that usama mir or some other spinner did had a visa, but the selector(zakir or iqbal dont remember) didnt want to select that spinner and tried to get zafar gohar cleared for visa.

    Zafar gohar got the visa but the lunatic slept and didnt wake up to catch his flight.

    Misbah was furious because he knew that the other spinner who was usama mir i think, had a visa but the selectors didnt want him to go.

    Misbah selected islamabad united squad of young players. The guy is great in talent identification. His team won 2 psls
    Misbah selected sngpl and faisalabad first class teams. All the players were handpicked selections of misbah. Rizwan was playing in sngpl for a very long time.

    Misbah will be a great selector, but i want misbah to do just one thing.

    If a situation arrises that a younis khan type player or afridi type player who has fan following but doesnt perform. Than misbah needs to boot him out. Whether it is babar azam or imad waseem or sarfraz or whoever. If the pkayer isnt performing but has the backing of media and fan followinf, misbah needs to make the strong decision at the end of the day

That is adequate treatment for a selfish person. Just look at the amount of oldies he selected for the camp in NCA.... Rahat Ali, Iftikhar Ahmed, Bilal Asif

    Don't have issues with Misbah, I consider him to be one of the few sensible brains in Pak cricket. I do have issues with the scenario behind this reported decision. How can you have someone be a part of a reviewing committee for the coach and at the same time be in the running for the same post? I don't see ANY justification behind this move, it's conflict of interest 101.

    The conflict in interest is the biggest offence.

    Giving somebody like Misbah this much power can damage our cricket further.

    This is the guy who picked Rifatullah as a backup player for Islamabad United over any promising youngster...

    Youngster isn't a definition that has just one meaning,

    Tendulkar was only 22 years old but he wouldn't be considered a youngster coz he had played international cricket for 6 years and was one of the most recognized batsman in the world even at 22.

    On the other hand Riffatullah (owing to his dmestic performances) got into a side to play his first few games in an international level league there is no harm in that.

    Rifatullah was 40 when selected for Islamabad United. If he was a performing player then nobody has problems with his selection.

    He was selected in 2017 for Islamabad United when he had already failed in the International scene with his horrific technique being displayed.

    On what basis he was picked, his performances were not even that good.

    It reeks of bias and Misbah must be held accountable.

    He has the potential to completely destroy our cricket if he is given this role.

    I don't trust Misbah to pick the correct players.

    This case with Rifatullah is not an anomaly.

    Misbah was always a cricketing extremist in terms of:

    1. His veto on the selection of players he didn’t like.

    2. His insistence on selecting the likes of Mohammad Hafeez and Yasir Shah outside Asia even when they were serial failures.

    3. His refusal to compromise on his eternally failing strategy of bowling his quicks into the ground outside Asia.

    4. His refusal to future proof his team by bringing through youngsters.

    But it surprises me to learn that he lacks the ethics to identify the appalling conflict of interest in being part of the committee which fired the past coach, only to put himself forward as his replacement.

    But if he really has not got the principles to realise that his involvement in Arthur’s dismissal disqualifies him from replacing him, then we have reached a point where even the supposed “Mr Clean who rescued Pakistan Cricket” turns out to be in the gutter.

    I think this would be going backwards to be honest. There's just far too much conflict of interest and personal bias in being head selector and head coach. If you're both a coach and selector, you simply won't select players you don't like or that you don't like coaching and I think anytime one person is controlling everything without pushback from anyone, that's where you get into real trouble.

    PCB literally just divided up power so one person doesn't control everything in PCB and it wouldn't make sense to have that in cricket either.

    If this happens think this kind of heralds PCBs increasing focus on the test championship. Giving Misbah almost full power to revert their test fortunes. Especially seeing how Sarfraz and Mickey are doing even in Asia in tests.

    It's a very bold move which is going to divide fans. And if Pakistan loses, the fans will turn on Misbah, rather than/less than the captain. Which could be a good thing in a way, less pressure on players/captain.

    I would be a little surprised if they made this choice as their are coaches they could pick that would please everyone/majority like Hesson, Dean etc. It's also a bigger risk as Misbah hasn't coached a side before either. Not the safe choice at all.

    I think it's much safer just using Misbah as a chief selector or just assistant coach role. I'd also give him a PSL side to coach, preferably Lahore Lions or Karachi Kings and see if he can actual turn their fortunes around. Just introduce him solely into international cricket, rather than immediately giving him powers no coach has had in Pakistani history I think.

    What about the likes of Shadab, Faheem, Asif Ali? For one bad selection he made countless other better ones.

    Atleast do try to remember the whole tournament if you want to critisize someone

    Now the rafatullah case.

    The draft had already been done and the psl was going on. I think there was some injury or someone was selected hence they needed a good opener mid tournament. The only best option at that time was rafatullah because in those years he was performing well in domestic t20 crixket

    Hence the selection.

    Now in the end he didnt perform as expected but how is that the selectors fault?

    4. His refusal to future proof his team by bringing through youngsters.

    But it surprises me to learn that he lacks the ethics to identify the appalling conflict of interest in being part of the committee which fired the past coach, only to put himself forward as his replacement.

    But if he really has not got the principles to realise that his involvement in Arthur’s dismissal disqualifies him from replacing him, then we have reached a point where even the supposed “Mr Clean who rescued Pakistan Cricket” turns out to be in the gutter.
    Again do bother to follow the game.

    1. Misbah never vetoed. Stop using such termanalogies to male him look like some evil person

    Anywyas. When it came to selection of players it was the selection comitittee having its say.
    Misbah wanted asif ali in t20 they did not obey. He wantes ayub dogar on merit for SA series they did not obey.
    He tried getting a third spinner for a uae series, selectors again did not listen to him.
    We ended up not winning one test game as a spinner got injured and we disnt have a back up 2nd spinner to bow.

    Also in the 2015 world misbah amd mlin khan had regular problems as during the first 4 games moin was selecting his team and not letting misbah select. The freaken team manager. And here you talk about some veto. Lmao

    2. Hafeez was a good 5th bowler, one of the best infact. In pakistan domestic we had no 5th bowler of his level.

    Yasir shah, you need to go watch his lords bowling performance. Plus the only other option was zulfiqar babar.

    Seriously now you will question misbahs spin choices lolll

    3. What failing strategy are you on about?
    Misbah showed everyone that to win in uae you need 2 full time spinners. He left oyr record in uae got destroyed.

    And when it came to australia the guy bowled with 4 pacers.

    4. It seems you are forgetting the pakistans battinf in 2013 and 14.

    Every player that got selected or tried was a bust. How was that misbahs fault?
    Nasor jamshed came. He was a bust.
    Sohaib maqsood came due to media and he was a bust
    Umar akmal was always a joker
    Sharjeel khan was selected by misbah after he scored concecutive 100s in domestic, he disnt perform at that time but later on he got greedy and got involve in corruption.
    Umar amin was another joke of a cricketer.
    Haris sohail was a player that was left and sarfraz ahmed aswell

    So again tell me, if the youngsters did not perform, how exactly was it misbahs fault?

    Plus you ignore the fact that misbah selected youngsters in islamabad united played 4 emerging players in one a single match even though psl rules require 1. Most of the pakistan team is made up of his islamabad united selections.

    5. Again, you need to read reports and stop making up stories.
    Cricket comititee had intially agreed to renew mickeys contract, but then an article was posted which states that imran khan intervened and didnt want arthur as coach and he is the patron in chief so go figure.

    Honestly Misbah wouldn't be my first choice, hell in an ideal world he wouldn't even be my 20th choice, but people are going way overboard saying things like like "RIP Pakistan cricket'. I wouldn't be mad if he was appointed as head coach, although the conflict of interest is wrong.

    Misbah is a Pakistani legend whether people want to accept it or not. He knows how to win matches with little resources. I'm surprised we won as many ODIs as we did under his captaincy, our team then was terrible. Because of him and Wahab our 2015 World Cup campaign was at least respectable, I'll never forget that match against Zimbabwe, these 2 saved us from a pathetic loss and World Cup exit. The best thing about Misbah is he knows how to win test matches, which is the most important thing in the next 2 years since the championship has started. ODIs literally don't matter for the next 2 years, T20s do but that team is very settled and Misbah has that covered too, after all it was his team that won the inaugural PSL.


    Does cricket survive off of it's money or does it survive for it's money?

    It’s good that the coach will have a say in selection. Harsh to criticise a coach for working with players he hasn’t even selected.

    I don’t know how Misbah will do a coach if chosen. So I’ll wait to see before making comments such as RIP Pakistan cricket.

    Sarfraz still needs to be sacked and he hasn’t been. That’s more worrying than Misbah being coach.

    Exactly. When they refuse to renew the contracts for the coaching staff, i thought a fresh line up of coaches and team will come through, which is nice time to start with such proceedings.

    On what basis was asif ali, wahab riaz, rahat ali and ifthikar ahmed were selected.

    On what basis usman salahuddin, saad ali, saud shakeel, asghar were discarded, despite not having any chances.

    Why usman salahuddin, saad ali , asghar and saud shakeel not selected for this camp.

    Name the young players who misbah has selected now for this camp which is more of a test squad.

    He had 4 years to build an ODI team for the 2015 cwc yet he failed and suggested Azhar ali to captain the side after him which is another stupid decision by him.

    There will be more stupidity coming out of his selections coupled with his love for senior 30+ age players.

    Now how many spinners has he selected for the camp. Is Bilal asif the future where is umer khanx is there no young leggie or right arm offie in the entire pak domestic to be trained or coached lol.

    It reeks of bias and Misbah must be held accountable.

    He has the potential to completely destroy our cricket if he is given this role.

    I don't trust Misbah to pick the correct players.

    This case with Rifatullah is not an anomaly.
    Sharjeel was also a failure at the International level, but on his second stint he was the only player that could play aggressively in the top order. Not even Fakhar can portray the shots that Sharjeel had in his locker. Like Rifat, Sharjeel was also a Misbah selection who showed his class with IU in the PSL 2016

    Reactions regarding Misbah are really extreme here.

    Firstly being a captain and playing as a player is completely different job. If it would have been same than Mickey wouldnt have been an international coach as he was a poor player who couldnt even to get into national side.

    So my point is judging someones coaching potential from his playing days (Which had a lot of glory days as well) doesnt relate at all. LOI performances under Misbah and players available to him are debate for another time.

    Coming to the conflict of interest thing I am not sure how PCB went about it which I think PCB should clear.

    Like the Idea of Head coach Cum Chief selector thing as it allows having one man in charge which automatically eradicates selections which are never used and that the team as a whole moving in one direction rather than multiple people trying different things and arguing which in the end effected the results. Now there will be one man answerable and responsible for everything.

    Get ready for a ride back to the 80s, lol. Pakistan Cricket has never been dull before, like it is today, with Misbah as a coach, it will be like rubbing salt into the wounds. The guy has no coaching experience! Why not opt for Abdur Rehman? That ex-coach of Peshawar, who has got an impressive track record. But what do you expect from Punjab Cricket Board? Bunch of incompetent dudes.

    In my opinion Misbah should have been selected for one of the six domestic teams head coach to see if he can perform. PCB is playing a dangerous game with Pakistani cricket.

    Misbah is the real leach for Pakistan cricket. First he never retired till he was 43 and lost so many ODI and test for Pakistan, then continue to play for IU in PSL till he was kicked out for being too old. Then he continue to play QEA trophy till he was almost 50 and now manged to get involved in coaching and administration PCB and all oldies are back and youngsters left behind.

    Hence the selection.

    Now in the end he didnt perform as expected but how is that the selectors fault?
    Misbah picked Rifatullah who averaged only 24 in the National T20 cup in 2017.

    It is true that there unfortunate circumstances with Sharjeel's and Khalid Latif's bans.

    It is the selectors fault because they should have done some research.

    The guy played International cricket and showed his deficiencies.

    But they still picked him-that is the problem.

    I think if Misbah is to be appointed, it should only be as head coach as he was a good test skipper.

    Misbah was not completely useless, he did make some pretty good picks also that worked out like Asif Ali.

    But he has made questionable decisions not only for Islamabad but for the national team also.

    He is the best local candidate but i prefer we do not go that route.

    A national team’s coach is required to be completely subordinate to the captain.

    It’s why Mickey Arthur had to put up with a Test Team from Jurassic Park until Misbah retired.

    If Misbah is to be the coach he needs to understand clearly that his job is to do nothing except what Babar Azam or Shan Masood orders him to do.

    It’s why a dual Chief Selector / Coach idea is so atrocious.

    Misbah has no coaching or selection credentials. I’m lucky that I’m not Pakistani by nationality or blood.

    If they pick an unqualified scoundrel like Misbah, who abuses his power to create and take advantage of an outrageous Conflict of Interest, I just have a few years of ignoring Pakistan cricket and hoping that they lose everything overseas like they always did under Misbah.

    Misbah has no credentials for any of the two roles, he's totally unqualified. He should first get involved with coaching at FC, PSL, at U-19 level before being considered for any spot in the national team.

    If Misbah is to be the coach he needs to understand clearly that his job is to do nothing except what Babar Azam or Shan Masood orders him to do.

    It’s why a dual Chief Selector / Coach idea is so atrocious.

    Misbah has no coaching or selection credentials. I’m lucky that I’m not Pakistani by nationality or blood.

    If they pick an unqualified scoundrel like Misbah, who abuses his power to create and take advantage of an outrageous Conflict of Interest, I just have a few years of ignoring Pakistan cricket and hoping that they lose everything overseas like they always did under Misbah.
    funny how you act on an onine forum that you are not Pakistani but yt take a wide interest in Pakistani cricket and even in the former captain.

    Why? Probably so you can insult such players adn get away with it




    You have to be one ignorant person to keep on ranting about something that is not even true. Even though i have told you how mickeys decision was IMran's but yet, aftrer every 30 posts you make a post how bad mIsbah is and yadda yadda yadda.

    On what basis he was picked, his performances were not even that good.

    It reeks of bias and Misbah must be held accountable.

    He has the potential to completely destroy our cricket if he is given this role.

    I don't trust Misbah to pick the correct players.

    This case with Rifatullah is not an anomaly.
    O bhai, Pakistan cricket has always had the element of bias, Misbah or not.

    Only in Pakistan you don't need any qualification or experience to start from the top.
    Prime examples are Mohsin Khan, Miandad and now Misbah etc.
    That's much unprofessional our PCB.

    So far Wasim Khan didn't do any remarkable job apart from keep away Hafeez and Malik from central contract but that can be changed any time.

    Most likely Wasim Khan wants Misbah to get head coach cum selector (according to some report) which will be one of the worst decision make by PCB. The problem is the deadline is 23rd august (still 4 days to go after today). It sounds so unprofessional and the advertising process looks just for show.

    Sarfraz still hold the captain.

    Open trial for selection of U19 players also a eyewash to curtain bias selection.

    No thanks Misbah, giving him the job means losers like hafeez, malik, Asad and Azhar will continue to be picked.

    If confirmed then R.I.P pakistan cricket, the stone age mentality and tactics will come to the fore and agree Malik and hafeez will begin a new lease of life

    Think oldies. No player under 27 to debut and no fast-tracking of exciting talent.

    Back to mediocrity in ODIs and T20s.

    Worst idea to give this man the job.

    Only in Pakistan would this fraud be put in a position of power once again, despite the clear conflict of interest being on the board that dismissed the last coach. What a joke. This guy is a disease that just won't get cured no matter how much you try. I literally hate him now.

    Did anyone watch any of his WC analysis btw? I could not take more than a few minutes of his clearly pathetic analysis, which was proven so wrong time and time again. And people want this guy as coach and head selector? Damn, not wonder Pak is going down the drain.

    Look if we as a cricketing nation want to move forward and play modern cricket , hiring misbah would be a travesty.

    I personally would split the two coaching roles , one for test cricket and one for white ball cricket. There two completely different games.

    I also think giving one person all the power making them head coach and head of selection committee is a recipe for disaster , that might work for New Zealand but in our part of the world never going to work .

    Misbah looking very coach like at the NCA camp - surely he must be a prime candidate?

    PCB keen on appointing Misbah-ul-Haq as Pakistan’s coach-cum-chief selector

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is keen on appointing former captain Misbah-ul-Haq as head coach-cum-chief selector of the national team.

    Misbah, who is supervising a pre-season conditioning camp in Lahore, however, is yet to made up his mind.

    “He was not very keen to also supervise the pre-season conditioning camp but Zakir Khan, who is Director International Cricket and an influential figure in the board, convinced Misbah,” a well-informed source told PTI.

    He said that Misbah was reluctant because he was unhappy that the board had permitted some centrally contracted players to play in T20 leagues when some of them needed to undergo rehab to overcome niggling fitness issues.

    “Misbah is aware that some of the players are carrying niggling fitness problems including Fakhar Zaman and Babar Zaman and he felt that the PCB should have called them home after the World Cup and have them undergo a rehab process instead of giving them clearance to play in leagues or in England,” the source said.

    He said the former captain who is yet to apply for the post of head coach, the deadline for which is August 23, is not bothered about facing criticism.

    He said that Misbah was not a big believer in just having nets and preferred to have the team play competitive matches.
