Legendary cricket coach Javed Miandad has lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan for the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s performance.
Miandad, who was part of the Men-in-Green’s 1992 World Cup-winning side under Imran’s leadership, posted a video on his official YouTube account where he questioned the appointment of the current board officials.
“Inept people are serving at high-profile positions in the PCB,” said Miandad.
“You appointed a foreigner on a key position. What will happen when he flees the country after doing corruption? Is there a shortage of people in your own country that you had to bring people from abroad to work in the PCB?”

However, he further claimed that Imran Khan’s decision to end departmental cricket has increased unemployment. “They [cricketers] should be playing cricket. You couldn’t create job opportunities for the people you promised before.”
He said Imran Khan has deprived players of their jobs. The people of Pakistan are very capable, and there is no need to run the Affairs of Pakistan cricket by bringing people from abroad, Miandad added.
He alleged that ignorant people are running the affairs of PCB. He said who will catch the foreigners if they escaped after doing corruption in the PCB.
The batsman went on to say that he will be making political statements from now on. “I will say what is right and condemn what is wrong,” he added.
