    1) Make Younus Khan captain of ODI and Test team--Pak culture is such that you can not make young or new player captain.Younis has ability to guide youngster and he is risk taker and he is very fit as there be all junior player he will guard respect and as responsibility comes he will start performing

    2)Appoint Young player as Younus Deputy such as Sarfaraz.

    3)Appoint coach who is not former international player with 80-90 test matches experience and someone who is concerned with coaching only and some foreign.

    Ideal 11 fr all format

    Its very late now to appoint Younis as Captain. Our test team is more or less settled so I will leave it at that just need to rotate the pacers between Rahat, Junaid, Wahab, Imran Khan, Sohail Khan etc. Batting is well settled even though I don't like Hafeez but I won't disturb this combination.

    The biggest problem is our ODI team. First of all we need a genuine all rounder who is decent with both bat & ball. Azhar is appointed now as the Captain and we should give him ample time to settle in the role. He is doing fine as opener also till now. Fielding & strike rotation is the weakest areas of our ODI team. Need to improve in this a lot.

    I don't like Waqar or any other Pakistani as a coach. There are lot of ego issues involved and thus infightings takes place which effect the performances of the team. I would like a low profile foreign coach for our team.

    Now the board is also in a mess. Need to get rid of all these zinda laashain in the board. I won't mind someone like Aamir Sohail as chairman of the board who can take some bold steps. Throw all these ex cricketers out of the board who are leeching since they left the game. Taking salaries for doing nothing for the betterment of the game. Appoint some new educated professionals even if they had no prior cricketing experience but have proper managerial education in respective fields like Marketing, Business management etc.

    Political appointments like Najam Sethi should be thrown out and there should be no power struggle at the top of PCB. This can bring no good to our Cricket.

    Domestic structure need a total overhaul. We need teams based on regions. There should be maximum 6-7 teams. So that only the deserving players compete in the top domestic competition.

    Also we need to invest more in our Junior teams like A team and undeer 19 team. We need to send them on regular tours to countries like England, Australia, NZ, South Africa & West Indies. They need to learn the harder way playing in different conditions.

    We all agree that FC level needs to be restructured to provide more mature players to the national team but that is easy said than done; so my plan will to for short term:

    1) Make the national coaches job redundant.
    2) Make the role of Coaches at Academy & Jr. Team more important, being those people who can make the youngster to play freely & stamp their authority on field.
    3) Give the Captain more freedom in selection & make him accountable for the result.

    Younus appointment for 2 years is important its not step back it will improve the present condition and enhance future .Younus will surely groom Sarfaraz.Pak culture wont allow any new junior player as captain.Actually in reality with Azhar as captain pak will lose lot of series and eventually they will remove him.Pak should not follow other nation such as Africa who appointed smith who was not sure about his place.every nation has different culture pak should stick with their plan which work best for them and pak wont get banglawash if younus would have been there.Give younus liberty in selection and respect he will guard as all will be junior.in previous term who could not handle as there were lot of senior problem but now he can cope.

    Keep Azhar as ODI captain. As long as he is scoring runs confidence and respect from team will follow and he will start winning games. Get rid of Waqar and bring in a foreign coach. Make the captain responsible for on tour selections and hence the responsibility of the teams performance. Team should be comprised of both youth and experience in the batting dept. In cricket there is no alternative to on field experience for batsman whether its domestic or international. Bring back players like shoaib malik, Umar Akmal, sohaib maqsood. They will provide aggressiveness to the batting line up. Please dont go back to Younus Khan. Haris Sohail and Fawad Alam can do better than him. Batting order is also very impotant. Azhar, Haris and Fawad should be in top 4 in order followed by Akmal, Hafeez and Sarfraz. Bowlers should be rotated between junaid, wahab, irfan, sohail, rahat, ahsan adil and Yasir shah. Do not change the team every other game. Let the guys play and gel together for some time and the team will start performing as our test team.

    It not about changing the Captain; we need to make him more stronger & ask him to be proactive & aggressive in his play. As long as he is playing attacking Cricket lost will not hurt us but loosing like we have being doing for last 4 year under Misbah is not acceptable.

    you're saying PCB should appoint someone who from his consistent whining through media channels got in the plane for the World Cup 2015!
    No thank you, he's done for ODs. Should only focus on Tests. As for grooming part. PCB should have appointed Hafeez for one year and Azhar as his deputy.
    And if PCB removes Azhar on basis of him losing 2-3 Series then I'm sorry that will be one of the BS move by PCB in this decade. If they want the build-up process to be successful then they need to give time to that process

    The only way you can fix Pak Cricket is by doing so from top to bottom. Things such as school, university cricket is no longer there. Our domestic cricket system is a mess with tournaments starting out of the blue with people barely knowing that it's going on. Sub-standard balls, sub-standard pitches, too many teams.

    PCB is a mess. It's a political toy and considering the mess the country Pakistan is because of those politicians(+ army dictators), it's not surprise that our Cricket has gotten worse as well. I think it's been a steady decline for atleast the last couple of decades now. Our golden generation masked the problems, but they kept growing, and growing, and growing and now we can see the outcome of it.

    But as expected people for some reason think changing captains, changing coaches, bringing back TTFs will solve anything. Unless you change the system, you can do whatever you want, it won't have any substantial long-term effect.

    Yeah, if you have a coach who is highly incompetent then sure change him, but to believe we're struggling solely because of that said coach, or captain is as useful as believing in unicorns and fairies.

    Now it's Waqar. Before it was Whatmore. And before that again it was Lawson. Tomorrow it will be someone else. Tomorrow when you appoint a new captain and we magically don't turn into a juggernaut, you'll blame him and the next one after him. A vicious circle.

    However, for the short term, I'll keep these players. They might lose more games, but did people seriously expect a new team to perform from get go? I'll rather have the current team + some adjustments fight it out and gain experience and hopefully improve rather than go back to TTFs who won't serve any purpose but once again stall the development and opportunity to build for the future.

    if you read u will know the reason

    even Rashid latif is saying bring Afridi for 1 year to captain ODI team

    you have example of shoaib malik he captained at relatively young age and results are there for everyone

    same will happen with Azhar

    he did not played for pak nearly 2-3 years in ODI and suddenly capatain

    Pak culture dont allow young or new guy to captain
