Ex-Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar claimed that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) might replace Misbah-ul-Haq with Andy Flower.
Akhtar said on his famous YouTube channel that Flower will take over his duties after the sixth season of Pakistan Super League (PSL) is over.
“PCB has already offered Andy Flower the head coach job. He is not accepting it due to his coaching commitment with Multan Sultans. But once PSL is over, he’ll take over,” Akhtar said. “The decision to sack Misbah is already taken. They are not giving him any chance. “
Earlier, Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis appeared in PCB Cricket Committee to describe the current series losses against Kiwis.
Rawalpindi Express further added to his statement,
“It’s all lies! The whole performance review thing after the South Africa series is not true. They have already signed a contract with Flower,”
“PCB knowingly appoints average people so it could remove them in six months to avoid criticism. It’s a mediocre organization appointing mediocre players,”
Akhtar also teased Waqar’s willingness to do work under Misbah saying the bowler has to pay the cost for that decision now. “The greatest fast bowler in the history of cricket is working under Misbah. Fear God, Vicky bhai,” he added.
Pakistan will play two Tests and three T20Is against South Africa from January 26 to February 14.
