Umar Gul questions professionalism in PCB


KARACHI: Former cricketer Umar Gul shared that he was approached by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to become the assistant coach of the Balochistan team but they changed their decision without informing him. 

Taking to Twitter, Gul questioned PCB’s professionalism as he canceled his other commitments following the assurance from the cricket board to take up a coaching role in the Balochistan team.

“I’m disheartened to see professionalism is often missing at the PCB. Having gone through the process & assured by Grant Bradburn that I have been recommended for Assistant Coach of Baluchistan. And without any information I get to know Raj Hans has been preferred?” he wrote.

“I waited for a week and canceled my other commitments so I could get with the Balochistan team, got no response from the PCB! Totally unethical by an organization! I don’t know if things will ever change,” he added and also tagged PCB chairman Ramiz Raja.

It must be noted here that Umar represented Balochistan in his career’s last domestic season. He bid farewell to cricket last year.
