“I categorically state that I won’t be interviewed by my juniors”, says Mohsin Khan
Mohsin Khan has once again came up with some furious statements against the Pakistan Cricket Board, he once again criticized the board for ignoring the local compatible candidates for the post of head coach and running after foreign ones.
He addressed a press conference in an aggressive mood and coined the panel of Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja for appointing the new head coach as ‘too junior’. Mohsin Khan stated that the duo started their career during his last playing days.
Mohsin Khan said in the press conference, “I categorically state that I won’t be interviewed by my juniors; both cricketers in the committee started their careers towards the end of mine. If I apply I will address my application to the chairman only,”
Mohsin Khan was appointed as Pakistan’s coach in 2011 and he had a successful small tenure. Pakistan played eight test matches, they won six of them and two ended as draw. Under his coaching, Pakistan whitewashed England in the UAE in testes when they were dominating the test ranking. But, the Englishmen crushed Men in Green in ODI and the T20 series, which Mohsin calls a conspiracy for his removal from the post.
He said, “We did fantastically well against England in the Tests, after that a conspiracy was initiated to remove me. You can see how the move destroyed Pakistan cricket since my replacement Dav Whatmore and Waqar both did nothing for our cricket; in fact we have been left in a state of absolute shambles,”
Pakistan Cricket Board approached the former test opener of Pakistan to become the Chief Selector, but, Mohsin has set his eyes on the post of head coach and he will not settle for anything less. He thinks selection committee do not have much of a control over the result once the team is handed over to the coach and the captain.
