The Pak Banker - - International3 -

KARACHI: For­mer Pak­istan cap­tain Javed Mian­dad has de­clined the job of bat­ting con­sul­tant for the tour of New Zealand af­ter be­ing told by the Pak­istan Cricket Board (PCB) that he would have to re­port to na­tional coach Waqar You­nis.

Mian­dad, cur­rently serv­ing as PCB di­rec­tor-gen­eral, was in­ter­ested to work as bat­ting and field­ing con­sul­tant in the lead up to World Cup 2011 but has now backed out as he wants more author­ity.

PCB sources told IANS that Mian­dad never wanted to re­port to Waqar, the Pak­istan coach who had played un­der Mian­dad's cap­taincy.

Mian­dad is of the view that be­cause he is se­nior to Waqar and is also placed on a top PCB po­si­tion, he won't be able to re­port to the coach.

Gabba Test ends in tame draw Mian­dad, how­ever, of­fi­cially main­tained that he can­not travel to New Zealand with the Pak­istan team be­cause of his per­sonal com­mit­ments. Mian­dad said in an in­ter­view Wed­nes­day that he can help out Pak­istan's bats­men to iron out flaws in their tech­nique at a train­ing camp that will get un­der way in La­hore from De­cem­ber 8. -Ap
