PCB sug­gests Azhar in place of Mush­taq

Pakistan Observer - - SPORTS -

LA­HORE—While ig­nor­ing the re­quest of new coach Mickey Arthur, the Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB) has sug­gested the name of all-rounder Azhar Mah­mood for bowl­ing coach-cum-me­di­a­tor in place of Mush­taq Ahmed.

Arthur had asked the PCB to ap­point Mush­taq on the said post to me­di­ate be­tween PCB, na­tional team and coach.

The PCB, how­ever, over­looked Mush­taq be­cause he was work­ing as a bowl­ing coach at the Na­tional Cricket Academy and the academy would suf­fer if he trav­els with the na­tional team to Eng­land for three months.

There­fore, the PCB sug­gested the name of Azhar with a plea that he was aware of the mod­ern game and was most suit­able for the post.—APP
