    LAHORE: The controversies surrounding appointments of Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis are continue to surface despite the authorities’ insistence that the process was transparent.

    The Pakistan Cricket Board's (PCB) seriousness (or lack thereof) in interviewing West Indies legend Courtney Walsh for the bowling coach's position has been exposed some more.

    The Daily Jang has reported that after Walsh applied for the gig, a board representative called Walsh's agent at 2:00 am, without realising that it was the middle of the night in West Indies.

    The agent told the PCB representative to call in the morning and set a date for the interview, but by the next day the board had already made up its mind in favour of Waqar Younis. The former cricketer was also aware of the fact and that’s why he travelled to Lahore from Sydney along with his family, the report further added.

    Sources told the newspaper that when the five-member selection panel was reviewing candidates for the bowling coach post only Waqar Younis name was on the list and upon questioning by the panel, the Jamaican fast bowler was approached by the PCB and that too in the wee hours.

    Thus, the Burewala Express managed to snag the position unopposed for a rumoured monthly wages of Rs2 million.

    Several former cricketers and coaching candidates have bemoaned the PCB's interviewing procedure, claiming that the entire practice was staged for mere formalities when the appointments had been planned well in advance.

    Professionalism dies million time through the hand of PCB.

    Waqar & Misbah appointment is mockery of Recruitment Process and these appointment must be scrapped.

    PCB as gone head over heal to make Misbah Coach & CS & they needs to b held accountable to process.

    Not Imran's job, he has given PCB free hand and now to question them will only reflect badly on him.

    Secondly wasim Khan and Mani are not kids they know what they have done and must try to correct their course ritenow.

    On all counts Misbah has to go and new process of hiring must be implemented in just way.

    Not any what media says, anyone and everyone who care for Pakistan cricket will be frustrated abt these appointees.

    Misbah and Waqar are opposite of aggressive cricket.

    Everyone use abuse imam selection, now wait and watch the entire Islamabad unit squad will represent Pakistan.

    I remember misbah as the one who suggested Azhar Ali as Captain. Now he wants sarfraz as captain as both are yes man and this will a grooming lesson to all that be in good books of Misbah the mighty.

    Where will accountability in misbah case, if we win who will get all the credit and if we lose who will be blamed?

    Misbah will first select the squad than selected the playing 11, tell me which captain will have guts to question misbah's pick, if he want stay in the team.

    This appointment are shot and must be revoked ritenow.
