    WTH is going on????

    What's the reason behind his sacking?

    And what has Misbah done all of a sudden to be showered all roles and responsibilities????

    But earlier they said A national coach cannot be coach of PSL team.

    PCB looked the other way with Mickey Arthur coaching Karachi and Inzamam being involved with Qalandars. If they really are serious about making PCB a professionally-run organization then they should prevent this very clear conflict of interest from happening.

    Because Pakistan has not produced ant other cricketer but Misbah, he single-handedly has to run all cricket in Pakistan. PSL, National team and domestic teams.

    Waseem Khan enjoying his very fat salary, no need to work hard, given every role to Misbah, absolutely ridiculous.

    Head Coach, Selector
    Islamabad United Head Coach aswell

    This is a good decision, will keep a watch on the players aswell.

    This is outrageous if Dean was forcibly removed. He's PSL's most successful coach. If he chose to leave fine, but totally awful if he was sacked, and even worse if it was only to put Misbah there.

    Do not care if Misbah coaches a PSL team as Mickey did it (and especially if Misbah as coach is earning less than Mickey, it's a way to supplement income). But he could have easily taken over one of the failing PSL teams like Lahore or Karachi Kings. Lahore would have made the most sense.

    Hope this is true. It's unacceptable if it wasn't. Though not sure what Deano has to gain moving to Lahore, it's a worse team though maybe they offered him a salary too good to refuse.

    It will sound "banal" if you're a Misbah fan, but you are entitled to support whoever you like, regardless of how damaging their presence might be to the fortunes of your team.

    I have no personal dislike of Misbah, I simply detest what he has done to Pakistan cricket and because I actually care about the greater good of Pakistan cricket, I could not be any more certain of the doom and gloom coming our way as a result of this appointment.

    My favourite all-time cricketer is Imran Khan, however I have also been critical of him for his role in appointing Ehsan Mani, who has so far proven to be a let down.

    The point is it doesn't matter who your favourites are, no one is infallible and exempt from criticism.

    Dean Jones has little to do with IU's success.

    I personally think this is good for Pakistan Cricket because it's really important that our former players are constantly tested as Head Coaches, Executives, and Managers. We need to look beyond former cricketers as thinkers.

    Predicting the upcoming IU presser with Misbah:

    "Happy news all, I am now coach and selector for Islamabad United. But there is no conflict of interest, I asked PCB but they don't know what that means, so all fine. Also, I will notice the performance of Islamabad players for national team selection. This is not like before, this is the new professional Islamabad United. I want us to go to PSL and play good, competitive and aggressive cricket, that is the only way to win the PSL. Our strategy is also based on that, we want to have some surprise packages in our team so we can challenge others, therefore we will fill the teams with senior players."

    "When rivals are expecting young players to put their hands up and perform, IU will surprise them with a team filled with seniors. Then rivals be like: Wah bhai Wah!"

    "Ajmal, Irfan and Sami, their attitude towards bowling is something worth seeing. We believe in these players and insha'Allah they are our future. Once we are in PSL and compete then it's fire against fire."

    "Once again, We aim to play fearless cricket in PSL and win"

    "In regards to future roles, The chairman, Wasim Khan and myself had a lot of discussion on this matter, we looked at all these things and analysed them. Right now there is no openings in cricket. But Wasim bhai mentioned that Pakistan Hockey Federation will have vacancies coming up, I shall apply for that."

    "regarding team selection the doors aren't closed for anyone, we are backing youngsters but prefer seniors. We also want to go to PSL and see that regardless of whether these guys play or not, even when they bowl in the nets in those conditions, you can get a good idea of which players can be useful for the T20 World Cup going forward. There's a lot of time until the World Cup so any player can make it to the squad, even retired ones"

    "Pacy and tall bowlers have been preferred due to their energy and we are trying to have an aggressive lineup in bowling so that we can give as good as we get"

    "Did I mention aggressive cricket?"

    "It's clear that we will try to play cricket in a similar way in PSL. When you make a team or go anywhere, winning is the first priority and that's what we're thinking of as well. Our strategy is to play aggressive cricket, that will give us the best chance of winning"

    Misbah was effectively and practically running Islamabad United anyway.

    Selections were his.

    Strategy was his.

    No point in Deano staying, to be honest.

    Apparently Misbah categorically told the PCB that he won't accept the PCB role if he was not allowed to work in the PSL.

    I am assuming as part of professional practice that Misbah will not be paid by the PCB during his involvement with the PSL

    Mickey’s future at KK isn’t confirmed yet but there is no reason for KK to keep him in my opinion as they performed ordinarily in almost every season.

    Though Azhar Mehmood wont be with KK anymore.

    As expected Misbah will be contine rewarded regardless his performance with national team under incompetent Mani and Wasim. Soon he will bring more seniors in his squads even if we whitewashed by every country.
    Looks like he will be award extention of another 3-4 year super coach position.

    Most likely we will not qualify for 2023 and 2027 World Cup and like PHF/PSF, PCB will not be bother to do something.

    PCB was desperate to have Misbah as national head coach by the looks of it. Mani and Wasim Khan must have seen something in him for the position which many posters dont understand.

    Will you still support Misbah if we don't qualify for 2023 World Cup and blame Micky/lack of talent for that?

    WC 2023 is far, even if Pak looses to Srl in tests Misbah and his position will be under a lot of pressure just like it happened with Mickey. I am neutral to Misbah's appointment but my stance will change if dont win against Srl as Pak team is good enough to do that and team management should be responsible if that doesnt happen. I personally hope we can beat Srl this time around.

    Do you thing PCB will persist with him for 3 years if we keep failing like that or he will get an extension regardless results due to his massive supports from former desi legends.

    I am finding the backlash against MUH funny given that previous to accepting this position he was regarded as the greatest Pakistani captain ever who led the team during turbulent times with honour, credibility, maturity and dignity. Lol, what exactly has changed or what exactly has he done or is he doing that he has never done before?

    Micky is foreigner and Misbah is local with lots of former oldies support.Misbah has a huge advantage in terms of performances. He can get away saying we don't have any talent in domestic.

    To be honest I agree that the ride with Misbah in charge has been a bit bumpy one till now (Srl T20s along with selection of Irfan and Imran Khan jnr) but most of the matches we have seen are the T20s under him and I think its still early to form any judgement so I will probably wait till Srl tests to form any clear opinion.

    When I said PCB was desperate to have him its clear from the contract he has been given as well as if I am not wrong PCB will have to pay him in full if he is removed.

    That is a suspicious part!! Why you offer a big salary and 3 years to an unqualified person? It could lead us stay out of next World Cup (2023). Because there is no way any new coach can fix thing in 6 months of 3 years of all wrong doing.
    This Wasim khan guys seems very suspicious character.

    Calm down. We're on our way to winning our first home Test series in a very very long time.

    Mickey Arthur kept losing in Tests even at home. Now we're gonna reset the dark past.

    Victory awaits us. You should look forward to a proper and realistic series before being so bitter and posting immature stuff.

    A certain group of posters running a hate campaign based on T20s, immediately after new management taking over should tell you a lot of things.

    Don't take them seriously. We're on our way to winning the first home Test series in a long time. Mickey has made us forget what victory feels like. Especially in Tests.

    Do not lose the focus by these troll hate posts based on the first couple of series that too T20s.

    We could not even win with SL D team and you expect us to win against SL main team in test? With Azhar Ali captain he will try to chase 180 runs in 200 overs. Keep dreaming bro!!!

    That would amount to radical thinking for some!

    I bet our test team will loose to Bangladesh and Afghanistan. And soon our LOI team will be no.9-10 if we keep loosing matches after matches.

    Wait for a surprise.

    The real first test, where I expect the team to win and overcome Mickey Arthur's dark era, is winning the Test series vs SL.

    I hope you'll change your opinion and stop these bitter posts once we win that.

    Till that time, you should observe, and give time to the new management to settle in, build a team. Don't base your opinion (and hate) on these meaningless T20s. For T20s, wait for World T20, where we would have a good side settled.

    It's difficult to make you understand things..

    Let's wait for the SL Test series. Will you change your opinion once we win it?

    If I remember correctly, Babar was part of the Islu setup but later discarded. Is the greatest judge of talent in Pakistan so inept that Babar, probably the best batsman to come out of the country, was not deemed worthy by Misbah?
