Cricket won’t im­prove un­til do­mes­tic struc­ture is fixed: Waqar

Pakistan Observer - - SPORTS -

ISLAMABAD—For­mer Head Coach Waqar You­nis feels that Pak­istan cricket would not im­prove un­less and un­til stern steps are taken to fix the do­mes­tic cricket.

Waqar, who had re­signed as Pak­istan’s coach three months be­fore his con­tract was go­ing to end on June 30, said the Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB) needs to im­prove do­mes­tic cricket first.

“I will have been pleased if progress was made on my rec­om­men­da­tions,” he said while talk­ing to a pri­vate news chan­nel.

Waqar, who was ap­pointed in May 2014 for a two-year con­tract, said the PCB was talk­ing about changes but real changes were not be­ing done.

“There seems to be lot of talk but the PCB is yet to an­nounce for­ma­tion of cricket com­mit­tee. PCB has real work to do in try­ing to get real crick­eters into the pro­posed cricket com­mit­tee,” he said.

Speak­ing about the newly ap­pointed head coach Mickey Arthur, Waqar said Mickey’s em­pha­sis should be on dis­ci­pline and it will ben­e­fit the na­tional team.

Arthur was ap­pointed Pak­istan’s coach last week, fill­ing the po­si­tion va­cated by Waqar in April..—APP
