Karachi: In a letter written by former chief selector Mohsin Khan to the chairman PCB Shahryar Khan which included his bio-data, interesting details have come up according to which he had shown his desire to work as a mentor, coach or as a director. On the other end since Aqib Javed did not apply, therefore the coach hunt committee ignored all other Pakistani candidates. Meanwhile the Board officials are surprised over Stuart Law for not keeping his commitment.
According to sources the former Australian cricketer had applied for a coaching position but quickly slipped out of the race giving an impression that PCB had directly contacted him. Details reveal that former test batsman Mohsin Khan had bye-passed the coach hunt committee by sending his application letter directly to PCB chairman Shahryar Khan. Sources say he had shown his availability for all the three positions, a coach, mentor or a director upon which the board officials couldn’t resist smiling. Earlier in an interview Mohsin Khan had made it clear that he won’t be sending his application to his juniors Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja.
Since he failed to follow the proper procedure, his name was not forwarded to the committee. Former pacer Aqib Javed didn’t apply as he felt preference would be given to a foreign coach therefore there was no point in getting embarrassed. Besides Aqib there was no other recognized former Pakistani player opting for this position. However Mickey Arthur has been selected for this position.
On the other end PCB officials are surprised at Stuart Law for not keeping his commitment as he himself had applied for this position. In a recent statement given by Stuart Law he says “PCB has asked me to join as a coach but I cannot accept this offer as I am already committed.”
