    “I will not deny it” : Shoaib Akhtar on talks with PCB over role of Chief Selector / PCB denies it

    Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar on Thursday confirmed that he is in discussions with PCB for a plum post in country’s cricket set-up which is believed to be chairman of selector’s post replacing Misbah ul Haq.

    The PCB has plans to removed head coach Misbah ul Haq from the chief selector’s position and Akhtar is being considered for the role.

    “I will not deny it. Yes, I have had some discussions with the board and I am interested in playing a major role in Pakistan cricket. But nothing is decided as yet,” Akhtar said on on Thursday during an interview.

    Akhtar’s name has been doing rounds as the board is seriously considering relieving head coach, Misbah off his dual responsibility and also because of its new code of ethics (another name of Conflict of Interest) policy.

    “I live a very comfortable life?I played cricket on my terms but now I have settled down. But I am ready to leave this comfort and try to put my neck on the line for the PCB..I am not afraid others give advice. I will give time if the opportunity arises,” Akhtar said.

    Akhtar, however, refused to divulge details of his discussions with PCB top bosses.

    “Yes there has been some discussions. I can reveal only this much but nothing concrete as yet. But talks are still on. I have not said “yes” neither have they (PCB) said “yes”,” one of the most controversial fast bowler of his time said.

    Akhtar also said that if he accepted the chief selector’s job he would probably be the first player who would become “bigger than the job”. And no one knows it better than him.

    “I don’t like saying this but it is a fact. Look I don’t want a job and I don’t need a salary. People want jobs and they come for salaries but I don’t need the money.

    For Akhtar the motivation is to build a pool of world class players who will serve Pakistan cricket for long time.

    “I am ready to get in the line of fire. I will do it because I want to play a role in creating a pool of players from the new generation who play with an aggressive mindset and without fear of failure.”

    Akhtar said that if he is entrusted with the job, he wants to create match winners like Wasim Akram and Javed Miandad, who would become brands on their own.

    READ: ‘Honest people don’t complain but take decisions’: Shoaib Akhtar slams Misbah

    “We need to start having players who have same mindset that our greats like Javed Miandad, Wasim Akram or Mushtaq Muhammad had.

    “The fast bowlers should not have muscular gym-toned bodies but ones that is cricket specific. I want to have 15 players who are brands and stars and this can only be possible if they feel secure and can win matches with their performances.”

    He said the main problem with the present Pakistan team was that it was scared of losing and players were insecure.

    “This mindset had to be changed. I believe that If had been with the team there was no way we would have lost the first test to England after reducing them to top 117 for five?aggression is necessary in top cricket.”

    “I have always believed in making tough decisions and people will back you.”

    He also called on Misbah to focus on leaving a legacy in Pakistan cricket instead of worrying about the results all the time.

    “Everyone’s career has to end sometime. As a coach, he has to change his mindset. Play another two to three Haider Alis.”

    Asked about criticism against him that he is always nitpicking loopholes in the Pakistan team and praising the Indian players, Akhtar gave a sound reply.

    “Tell me what I am supposed to say. Virat Kohli is not just a top batsman but has around 70 plus international centuries. He as captain has built a formidable pace unit and they are winning matches for India. So how can I criticise him for anything tell me?

    He said similarly Indian cricket was moving ahead because of their planning and aggressive mindset of players.

    “Take for example Jasprit Bumrah. He has improved so much what do I say about his performances?

    Shoaib should replace Waqar as bowling coach, MD Wasim as chief selector and Hature as our coach. This Hature is a fearless person and he doesn't get intimated by seniors and has very good eye to discover talent.

    It would be very interesting to see how he deals with Misbah whom he criticises frequently for being timid & defensive.

    It will be a clash of personalities & mindsets between the COACH & CHIEF SELECTOR - which I don't think is a bad thing at all. Having different personalities adds diversity and freshness & keeps everyone on their toes.

    With Misbah we will have the defensive Azhar Ali's & Asad Shafiq's
    With Shoaib we will surely inject more aggressive mindset players in the form of Haider Ali.

    It would be most interesting to see how Shoaib-Misbah combo deals with Hafeez & Malik

    I think he was speaking in terms of aggressiveness and intent - no doubt Haider is more positive which is needed in T20 cricket

    I will like to see Shoaib as chief selector purely because he would be better than Misbah. But preferably bring someone in from the system - someone from last years’ panel of 6 selectors/coaches who did well such as M Wasim

    Shoaib you played in 1999 Hobart Test where we lost after Australia were 126-5 chasing 369.

    You can't pick a guy in such a critical position just to teach him a lesson. Should have offered him a more junior position to see how he does or if he can actually walk the talk.

    This is probably the greatest way to land a cushy job lol. open a youtube channel and start criticizing every move of a company where you want a job. I hope some of the top fortune companies have a similar policy

    Well, he also says that he single-handedly won 20 Test matches for Pakistan… when that’s the total number of Test wins he participated in.

    He can speak in any term but any kind of comparison between the two at this point would be absolutely ridiculous.

    It just shows that Shoaib is an extremely hyper, temperamental and emotional character who is not fit to for a professional job where you need to meticulously plan things and not shoot from the hip!

    The fact that he has held talks about the role shows PCB is losing faith in Misbah. No way would you be talking to other people about a role if you had confidence in the person who had the current role.

    I think the fact that this is in the public domain is representative of the immaturity within our Cricket Fraternity. The PCB has obviously not given significant thought to the Institution of Chief Selector or Selection, Head Coach, or the Captaincy. For this to be public or a consideration shows demonstrates a lack of foresight and poor planning. Equally, I think it is immature and highly unprofessional for Shoaib to be discussing this in public. If he is to become a Chief Selector (a position he's not qualified for) he will have to work with Misbah. I wonder how that will turn out?

    Should we give him a janitorial job?
    You prolly say, no.
    And rightly so, because this is not in his alley.

    How about a clerical job in the accountant department? No?
    How about a chai wala aur chapraasi or regional director or CEO or financial officer or business administrative?
    The answer to all is, no.

    The answer to chief selector job is also a NO.

    Yes, I agree. Let’s give him a chance, but WK n board should also use some basic logic and give him something that is in his alley, and he may be doing good at.

    And in my opinion, it should be a limited part fast bowling consultant, after we remove Waqar that is.

    The only good thing about Shoaib being the chief selector is that, it’s either he or Misbah, who will survive.

    Sigh. Shoaib has been garnering attention by behaving like a clown, making stupid outlandish statements with the sole aim of generating discussion about him.

    I can't believe the PCB might reward this behaviour by considering him for chief selector.

    If Shoaib had kept a quiet life after retirement this wouldn't be happening. What we're now going to see is every ex-cricketer who's ever existed being 'controversial' on social media in the hope they'll get noticed by the board.

    IMO he is not the right choice for the position of chief selector.

    Not now but in future, I would like to see Muhammad Wasim as chief selector of Pakistan team.

    Is this some sort of joke?

    Has ever coached any team at any level?

    If appointed I can see him causing some serious trouble in the dressing room and changing half the team after a loss.

    I dismissed this as total fake news when I first heard it but now with Akthar confirming he is in talks, well, what can I say. Wasim Khan and Ehsan Mani have lost their marbles if they think appointing Akther is a good move. The guy has the IQ of a goldfish

    I don't get this obsession over appointing ex-cricketers to high ranking positions in the cricket board. I thought with Wasim and Ehsan we had entered into a new era, given that they are both professional administrators, not ex-cricketers without the first clue about how to run a cricket board.

    It's sad because you come on to a place like this forum and you come across countless fans who would make great national selectors because they bother to follow and analyse both the domestic and international game in Pakistan. Yet some big name looney gets the job and frustrates the hell out of us fans with his clueless selections.

    I won't write off Wasim and Mani just yet. Let's see if Akther even gets the job first.

If he is to become a Chief Selector (a position he's not qualified for) he will have to work with Misbah. I wonder how that will turn out?
    Yes it should have been kept quite. I don't understand how PCB have allowed this to come out. They know Shoaib likes making headlines so they should have made his agreed to keep this to himself.

    For me we should have a selector who will watch domestic cricket regularly. Not sure if Shoaib will.

    You are assuming PCB have control over someone who is not their employee.

    Having said that, a more professional way to do this would be to ask Akhtar to sign an NDA before any contact is made and then hold him to that.

    Shoaib, like most Pakistani fans, is delusional.

    They think we are a world beating side that is held back by defensive mindset, which is why Misbah is an easy target.

    The bitter reality is that Pakistan is in the league of teams like West Indies, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

    There is an obvious skill gap between us and the likes of India, England and Australia, and that gap cannot be bridged by showing aggression and acting tough.

    Regardless of Misbah’s capabilities as coach and selector, I am quite impressed with his answers in the media.

    He has made no bones about the fact that the players currently playing for Pakistan more or less represent our talent pool, so the fans need to lower their expectations because we are not good enough.

    Our fans obviously get irritated with reality-checks and they prefer Mickey Arthur type dramaybaazi. We are a proud team and we hate losing, we are so talented, this guy reminds of legend X, this guy reminds of legend Y and other such nonsense.

    Furthermore, if Misbah is going to be held accountable for the flop show in England, who will hold Wasim “I left England to help Pakistan” Khan for coming up with the genius idea of merging the head coach and selector roles?

    If this was such a bright idea, we would have seen superior and bigger teams like India, England and Australia implement it.

    So by sacking Misbah as selector, is Wasim Khan admitting that he goofed up and tried to act too clever by combining the two roles?

    So first he came up with this nonsense idea and now he is taking it back because it didn’t work. So that is it? Is he not going to face any repercussions? Will he not answer anyone?

    How can he be trusted to make sound decisions from now on?

    Furthermore, by sacking Misbah as selector but keeping him as coach, what is he implying?

    Is Misbah a bad selector but a good coach? On what basis has he reached this conclusion?

    What are the things that he dislikes in Misbah the selector and what are the things he likes in Misbah the coach?

    Will Mr. Incompetent ever come clean on this mess that he has created?

    Karachi: Former speedster Shoaib Akhtar is not being linked with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for any role.

    According to reports, PCB says Akhtar is not in line for the chief selector or any other position and considers the speculation as incorrect.

    Lo Jee - Karlo gal!

    I mean what is happening here? Is Akhtar making it up?

    Akhtar said he had some talks but nothing official - probably just had a call with Wasim Akram or so and is exaggerating

    Akhtar can't do worse than what we are currently doing.

    Heck, I would feel optimistic if Shoaib joins PCT. That's how bad our current status is!

    I know why you find it hilarious. The answer is in your profile pic.
    Anyway, there is an old urdu saying; 'bakri ki maa kab tak khair manaygi'.
    It is only so long before the guy gets the chop.
    I will say that you can laugh, and as Mamoon calls it, do "Bhangra" till the New Zealand tour.
