According to local media on Thursday, Pakistan’s head coach and team director, Mohammad Hafeez, assigned blame to others for the side’s losses in the Test and Twenty20 international series against Australia and New Zealand, respectively.
Acting PCB Chairman Shah Khawar met with Hafeez, and Salman Naseem, the COO of the PCB, was also present.
The 43-year-old said that the players weren’t paying enough attention to the game since they were too busy playing in the ongoing franchise T20 competitions.
It was already stated that following underwhelming performances in Australia and New Zealand, Hafeez’s tenure as director may come to an end. Over in Australia, Pakistan was defeated 3-0, while the Blackcaps defeated the Men in Green 4-1.
“Professor” Hafeez was under contract with the team until December 15. PCB is probably going to ask him to stop now.
Recall that on January 23, Shah Khawar, the PCB’s Election Commissioner and an advocate on the Supreme Court of Pakistan, was appointed PCB Chairman.
The Election Commissioner has the same authority as the PCB Chairman pursuant to the notification from the Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) Ministry and Article 7(2) of the PCB Constitution.
In the last fourteen months, Shah Khawar has been PCB’s leader five times. The board’s affairs had previously been overseen by Ramiz Raja, Najam Sethi, Ahmed Shehzad Farooq Rana, and Zaka Ashraf.
“I want to express my gratitude to Mr. Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, the PCB Patron, for his confidence in me. My main duty would be to conduct the PCB Chairman election as soon as possible in a fair and open way, according to Khawar.
Prior to this, Mohsin Naqvi was formally proposed by PCB patron and acting prime minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar to replace him as the new BoG delegate.
Zaka Ashraf, who just resigned from her role as Chairman of the Management Committee, is being replaced by the nominee.
In an interview with Geo News, Federal Minister for Inter-Provincial Coordination (IPC) Fawad Hasan Fawad verified the information, saying that Mohsin Naqvi’s candidacy as the patron’s representative in the BOG had been announced.
