    Deano will be pulling his hair out if he has to work with Misbah.
    Dean is a super aggressive mindset cricketer - even during his playing days, he went all guns blazing no matter who the bowler was. And he was not some dumb F slogger - he was precise and pleasing to the eye.

    Misbah on the other hand has some ego issues of thinking that he knows too much and he is always right - while the reality is, he is 110% loser mindset of a slow a$$ defeatist cricketer. Zero inspiration in his personality and horrible communication skills and terrible body language. I would keep him 100 miles away from Pak team.

    I know. I'm just looking at it differently. PCB will give Misbah the job because he's the only former cricketer they see. He's the definition of loser. Just thinking him the role as CS will be better then giving him coaching job and Chief Selector job as well. Remember the Provincial coaches will have a say in selection.

    Misbah has not changed. He was criticising Shaheen throughout the world cup. I don't want to criticise Misbah too much after all he has played 70 tests and was our most successful captain but if Younis is not given a role then Misbah should also not be given any role. Younis would have been amazing for the young kids but they didn't let him. We have seen Rahul in India do the same job. All of a sudden it's okay if Misbah becomes selector and coach but Younis cannot become selector and coach for the U-19 team?? I've never understood this love for Misbah?? The rest of our former players including legends the PCB doesn't even want to look at them.

    What would be interesting is who will get the other jobs.

    Wouldn't mind Hesson being batting coach. But they main thing would be the fielding coach.

    Also heard Dean Jones applied aswell. Wouldnt mind him and Misbah working togehter where Kaptaan saaab keeps the head coach and selector position while Dean Jones be under him as batting coach.

    Man that’s hypocritical.

    Favouritism has been part of Pakistan cricket for donkey years. Why single out one guy?

    Did I say no one else has had favourites??

    It's just that this has to stop now. Fawad/Usman/Saad//Saud/Amin/Akmal/Shehzad are bettwr then Asif in Tests. Asif Ali is a T20 player. We don't play T20s until November. Asif Was not among the top scorers in QeA Trophy and he has a FC average of 20. This is unfair. But guess what, Asif Ali played for Faislabad then Islamabad United and in previous season he played for SNGPL. Misbah is associated with all of them teams. Rahat was trash in Ireland test. He was brought in team based on T20 and now he's back after 1 year of no selection. Bilal Asif, Zafar Gohar and Iftikhar are also Misbah friends.

    Exactly what I thought!

    On a serious note, I don’t know what they expect to achieve out of Misbah? It’s quite clear we’ve improved without him in white ball cricket. Tests he was only good in the UAE and the majority of that was due to YK’s mountain of runs. When Younis’ form started dropping we even lost a test vs Windies in the UAE. Less said the better about our last test tours to NZ and Aus

    When it comes to COACHING, inspiration, experience, strategy making, intelligence, controlled aggression and personal Charisma - Misbah is not even in the shoe dust of Dean Jones.

    I mean, just look at your own avatar - that boring daft does not even know to salute.

    That open and sticking out thumb makes him look lie a chowkidaar or chaprasi or something.
    The proper leadership role of Army salute that is done by captains, the thumb is bent and close.

    At his retirement he made sure Pakistan was placed at no 8th spot in the test ranking.

    Former skipper Misbah ul Haq was the top contender to be the head coach for the national team as the Mianwali-born cricketer would be applying for the post.

    A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official told APP that PCB is focusing on to hire local coaches for the team and Misbah is the top preference for the job as he would be applying for the post.

    “Foreign cricketers have also applied for key slots of head coach, batting coach and bowling coach, but PCB’s preference was to hire the local coaches for the team,” he said.

    However, the deadline for accepting applications for coaching staff was August 26. The official further said former cricketer Mohsin Hasan Khan, Rashid Latif, Ijaz Ahmed and Saqlain Mushtaq were also under consideration by PCB to be given different roles.

    Misbah steps down from PCB Cricket Committee

    The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) today announced Misbahul Haq has stepped down from its Cricket Committee after expressing interest in applying for the role of the national cricket team’s head coach.

    Misbah met PCB Director International Cricket, Zakir Khan, on Monday afternoon and informed him of his decision, following which he formally applied for the head coach’s role.

    Misbahul Haq said: “It has been interesting to see my name being mentioned as a future head coach of the Pakistan cricket team, but the fact is I only made the decision today.”

    He further stated: “I am applying for the head coach’s role fully aware that the competition will be tough as I envisage there will be a few more very competent and highly qualified people applying for one of the most challenging jobs in the game. In saying so, I have to admit it is everyone’s dream to coach Pakistan cricket team, which has tremendous potential to be a force to be reckoned with across all formats.”

    The PCB advertised for the head coach’s role on August 9, with the last date for applications being August 26. The PCB hopes to complete the process by early September so that the new team management can assume charge in time to prepare the Pakistan cricket team for the forthcoming international season, which commences on September 27 with the ODI and T20I series against Sri Lanka in in Karachi.

    I feel they are giving him this role because it is Misbah.

    Nice guy but the wrong decision if true. I would have preferred a more seasoned person.

    Misbah is a YES SIR type of man who does not have any ideas of his own.

    They put him there as a puppet.

    Nothing is changed in PCB.

    return for his services as the head coach of the Men in Green.

    According to details, Misbah, who is the top contender for the vacant head coach position of the Pakistan cricket team, wants his salary to be in line with his predecessor Mickey Arthur for this position. Arthur was paid US $20,000 per month during his tenure but the board is reluctant to pay such a massive amount to a local coach.

    Another matter that could lead to a deadlock, between the two parties, is related to coaching in the Habib Bank Limited (HBL) Pakistan Super League (PSL) — which Misbah is keen on doing while retaining Pakistan’s head coach position.

    It must be noted that PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani had made it clear that having dual roles, with the national side and a PSL franchise, will no longer be possible and the new PCB constitution also reflected the same thing. In the past, the likes of former Chief Selector Inzamamul Haq, Head Coach Arthur, and Bowling Coach Azhar Mahmood held different roles with franchises while working with the Pakistan team.

    Sources have also stated that the aforementioned concerns were the reason why Misbah left applying for the head coach position till the eleventh hour. It was only because of PCB’s insistence, who were not able to find a suitable option to replace Arthur, that Misbah applied for the role. The board’s advertisement for the position was also chalked out keeping in mind the former captain’s qualifications.

    After a disappointing performance in the 2019 International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cup in England and Wales, the PCB announced that it will be immediately undertaking a robust recruitment process and decided not to renew the contracts of Arthur, Mahmood, Batting Coach Grant Flower and Trainer Grant Luden.

    As part of the recruitment process, the PCB advertised the four available roles and invited high level applications from interested candidates.

    Other than Misbah, former Pakistan coach Mohsin Khan and former Australian cricketer Dean Jones have also applied for the position of head coach. Meanwhile former Pakistan fast-bowler Waqar Younis is one of the contenders for the bowling coach spot.

    The interviews for all the positions will be carried out during the current week by a committee presided by PCB Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Wasim Khan.

    Well I certainly hope so.

    So, the saintly Misbah is only in it for the money. That’s why he took so long to retire, that’s why he took the media gig at cricinfo during the World Cup after all other media outlets probably rejected his boring voice - never mind the Indian hosts on cricinfo were taking the mick out of him most of the time. He just sat there like a shameless lapdog taking the jibes.

    All this saintly bakwas about Misbah has to end. He just wants what everyone accuses wasim, Waqar, Shoaib about - money. He’s no different. At least the others had some cricketing ability

    A bigger question is, how dare we allow every Tom Dikk and Harry to pretend that he is a high profile coach, and thus not only he can apply for the job, he can actually demand a salary of a high profile coach as well --- US$20,000 a month is what we are talking here.

    £16, 500 a month is a lot of money for a coach.

    But if you gave Mickey that much you must give the same amount to Misbah.

    But I don't get the PCB. They hardly invest in infrastructure that will help our cricketers. Our national players are still practicing like kids who have 50 rupees budget and it shows when you see them jumping when the bowling gets past 140 kph. Seriously Mickey ripped Pakistan cricket off. Game plan, game awareness and fielding aspect were missing.

    Every coaching role is kind of a ladder for aspiring coaches, they want to prove their point and increase their demand in market.

    Probably no one see any potential in this job opportunity. Its same like how we work in our lives.. you apply for jobs with better future oppirtunities

    Pakistan fans need to stop finding something to blame. The fact is that the players are mediocre. This is because you have a weak domestic structure. First of all you hardly have any batsman who average 40 in FC and among the ones that do (not including the 19 centrally contracted players) are Maqsood and Amin who are big time flops. The others include Shehzad and Akmal as well as Fawad, Usman Salahuddin, Saud Shakeel, Iftikhar Ahmed, Saad Ali and Kamran Ghulam. The remaining three players average 40+ after playing one season only. Among these guys many have sky high averages against regions but low averages against departments which shows the quality of these players. Regions are the minnows of First Class.

    Coaching is a major part at age group level. PCB should have given the U-19 kids to Younis Khan. An example of India is in front of us. I think Ravi is outstandingly pathetic. But still India is doing very well. Whilst Rahul Dravid has been working with the U-19s.

    Cricket should not be treated like football. Maybe if better players come from domestic cricket, coaches can stop having sleepless nights thinking about straightening bats and instead work on game plans for different situations, providing match awareness and work on advanced fielding skills.

    Pakistan fans welcome match fixers back into the side with open arms...and look at how they treat Misbah, one of the gentlemen of the game....whilst the rest of the world respect Misbah, Pakistan fans are under the impression that he ‘destroyed’ Pakistan’ cricket which is a huge myth.

    No I am not a fan of him being the head coach but if he is made to be coach, I will give him a chance.
