Former Pakistan Cricket team coach Mohsin Khan made sensational claim by saying that eight out of 11 in playing eleven of current Pakistan cricket team are unfit who doesn’t match fitness standards.

The former opening batsman Mohsin, who represented Pakistan in 48 Tests and 75 ODIs between 1977 and 1986 told this to Daily Express.

“Opening has always been an issue for Pakistan. Sharjeel Khan is a talented player. His fitness should not be a major concern because I think eight players in Pakistan’s playing eleven don’t meet the required standards so it does not make much of a difference,” Mohsin said.

Mohsin, who was also the chief selector of Pakistan and an interim coach of the side in 2011, lashed out at current Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq for accepting the dual role of the coach and chief selector.

“When Imran Khan became the Prime Minister, I was expecting that the decisions in PCB will be taken on merit but that does not seem the case. Our cricket is derailing from the right track as there is no consistency in the national team’s performance,” he said.

“There is lack of accountability with Misbah as the team’s head coach-cum chief selector. Who will you hold responsible when the head coach fields a side which he had selected himself?”
