Srinagar, Sep 6: The head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that Pakistan cricket teams head coach and chief selector Misbah ul Haq remains accountable for the teams performance and he will be questioned soon.
PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani as reported by Daily Dawn reported on Sunday said that Misbah would be held accountable for the performance of the side during last one year.
Pakistan’s performances during Misbah’s first year has been less than impressive, with the team failing to improve its ODI and Test rankings but sliding down from first to fourth in T20Is – a format considered their comfort zone.
Mani told Dawn that he is fully cognizant of the team’s slide and that the matter will be discussed with Misbah.
“I believe in empowerment and that’s precisely why Misbah was given full authority and support. But he very much remains accountable and as part of his appraisal process, he will be interviewed by the PCB Cricket Committee in the coming weeks in which he will be asked to reflect on his own and team’s performances, and share his vision for the future,” the PCB chair is quoted as saying.
