    "Misbah will now be solely responsible and accountable for his side’s performances" : Wasim Khan

    PCB Chief Executive Wasim Khan said: “We are delighted to have someone of Misbah-ul-Haq’s leadership, skill and stature taking on the responsibility of our national team. At the same time, I want to thank all the local and foreign candidates who offered their services, but the panel unanimously put their weight behind Misbah as it believed he was a perfect fit for the dual assignments due to his understanding, knowledge and demands of Pakistan cricket across all the three formats of the game.

    “The concept of a head coach also being a chief selector is an innovative one and a new introduction to our system. But, while the PCB has further empowered Misbah, it has also put more responsibility on his shoulders as he will now be solely responsible and accountable for his side’s performances. As always, PCB checks and balances will remain.

    “Furthermore, it strategically integrates nicely with our revamped domestic structure where the six head coaches of the first-class sides will also be the selectors. They will provide regular feedback and updates to Misbah on the local players that will assist him in his preparations and planning. Besides, this will also ensure meritocracy in team selections and more onus on the head coaches for their assessments.

    “Exciting times are ahead for the national cricket team, which will feature in the World Test Championship, Asia Cup T20 in 2020 and back-to-back ICC T20 World Cups in 2020 and 2021. The PCB has no doubts that under Misbah’s vision and guidance, the team will perform strongly and will succeed in transforming our talented players into world-class performers.”

    Wasim Khan press conference:

    "We are happily announcing Misbah-ul-Haq as Head Coach and Chief Selector of the Pakistan team. It's a good thing for us. It's also a proud moment. We look back to 2010 when Misbah came in the team, the team was in a bad situation but through leadership, vision and commitment, he again made Pakistan's name prominent. His leadership skills are second to none"

    "The Head Coach and Chief Selector dual role is an innovative move. Our domestic structure is also based on innovation. In England we say that if you do the same thing, you get the same results. We are bringing a different system and insha'Allah it will be a good role. People ask questions about accountability for the Head Coach and Chief Selector. Misbah will be the one who's accountable, there will be no grey area, and accountability will be with him for selection and performances on the field. There's no doubt about this. Our 6 cricket association coaches will work with Misbah. Our local coaches, people say, don't get opportunities but we are giving them chances. They will be the eyes and ears for Misbah on the ground because they will be involved day in and day out in the FC system"

    "When we approached Misbah about this role, he told us that he was in talks with two PSL franchises so when we decided to offer him this dual role, we reviewed the situation internally. How can we get him to have extra experience? In the next 365 days, we're playing just 42 days of international cricket. In that, 9 days of T20I cricket and 3 days of ODI cricket, that's it. So we were thinking as to how we can give him exposure, considering we have 3 major international events coming up in the Asia Cup and T20 World Cups in 2020/2021. So we decided that if Misbah is approached and given an opportunity, he will be allowed to take it up. He is a leader with us and is also a credible individual in the world. We are very happy and it's a proud moment for the country to have Misbah sitting at the helm"

    "The conventional selection committee is no more but the 6 provincial team coaches will work with Misbah. Misbah has knowledge and experience of FC cricket as well"

    "PCB has made a strategic decision, because Misbah hasn't coached a team before though he has worked with individuals and world class players. But he doesn't have that much exposure. He is the right person to take us forward. We've decided that if he has a chance to coach a PSL team, that will only benefit Pakistan because we're only playing cricket for 42 of the next 365 days. Working in PSL will give him a chance to work in a high pressure environment"

    "This is Misbah's first assignment but the bigger picture is important for us, which is Pakistan's success. PCB believes that he deserves an opportunity if he gets picked by any of the PSL franchises"

    "Captaincy will be the decision of Misbah and the Chairman"

    "We were internally discussing that the Head Coach and Selector should be the same person but this was a proposal. It depended on the person who came forward. We assessed Misbah's credentials and his knowledge so with him, it was easy for us. It's a big decision. After interviewing Misbah, we told him what we were looking for and he agreed, from my side there was no hesitation. Accountability should rest with one person and there's no grey area about that"

    "We are giving opportunities to our local coaches. Those running cricket associations will also have full autonomy and they will be accountable for their work"

    "Misbah is being paid a similar amount to Mickey Arthur. He is the Head Coach and Chief Selector, he will be under the same pressure so why would we give him a lower salary"

    "The captaincy is the Head Coach's domain"

    "The decision of batting coach will be Misbah's decision, he will assess the requirements. His specialism is batting and training also, he can work with the batters during training camps but when it comes to the match situation, it's difficult for him because there's so much to do. So we'll see about the support staff he will have around him and give him whatever he requires"

    "When we had the cricket committee meeting and made recommendations about Mickey and the others, the decision was made that now there's no coach so to continue the activities, we requested Misbah to handle these, he didn't ask for it. With the SL series ahead, we had to run training camps and fitness programs, so that's how he became camp commandant"

    "The panel that interviewed coaches was a good, independent panel. We thought hard before making decisions, we hadn't decided from before, it was an open process in our minds despite people running stories that it had been decided from before"

    "Provincial coaches will write reports about opposing teams' players for the selection process so this will remove politics from the picture"

    "Regarding A tours, we will sit down and make a plan. When we visit countries like South Africa, England, Australia and New Zealand, we struggle. Our A teams should be visiting these countries every year and we will make a 3 year plan for this after consultation with Misbah"

    "The teams that have been selected for the provincial teams will play in every competition for their cricket associations. The players will get chances in different formats. The T20 competition we're holding in October will have 2 positives, one is that it's before the PSL draft so players can impress. Plus, we have T20s in Australia in November so the selectors will get a chance to select the right team. Meritocracy is very important and the schedule will help us to make informed decisions"

    "Our FTP was finalised last year already. So we play Tests against SL in December, we have the Australia series, then a series against Bangladesh then PSL. So with scheduling, the challenge is for teams to be available. The schedule that was made last year was the best possible schedule unfortunately. Test cricket is very important for us with the Test Championship in progress so we're going to do all we can to focus on that"

    "I want to thank the selection panel for all the work they've done and the previous coaches Mickey Arthur, Grant Flower, Azhar Mahmood and Grant Luden. They have all done a lot for Pakistan and they worked very hard and we must not forget what all they did. I would also like to thank Rashid bhai and Nadeem bhai for the work they did with Misbah to set the teams up and get them up and running"

    This is such a good move.

    The coaches will be bound to ensure they do their jobs as they will be required to provide assessments of their players’ performances and make recommendations.

    This will make sure the domestic is the focus and not just PSL - it also shows constant engagement between Misbah and the domestic.

    This is pretty much a football structure where the manager is now the head coach and the U18s coach moves up the ranking to provide recommendations - its proven to be successful in Bundesliga and recently at Arsenal (Willock promoted).

    Apparently the domestic coaches will be required to give their views and inputs only on the opposition players so in some ways no one can accuse them of being biased.

    Only good thing about that since all our coaches are desi vai and we will have Kamran, Umar, Azhar, Shafiq ....in our squad mean no liability of loosing games and no criticise in the media. Every formers will be happy regardless the performance and PCB will be not be under pressure. Only genuine fans will be disappointed.

    Yes, Wasim Khan you will have no responsibility. You can go back and live in England now, where you came from, your salary will be mailed to you there every month. Thanks for your great services for Pakistan cricket , particularly for giving Pakistan the best and most experienced coach in the history of the game.

    People were predicting WI will be in the semi finals of the WC 19 after one good match so I would say people form their opinion prematurely and same thing happens when people try to predict starting of the new eras, ending of cricket etc.

    People will only go by what they see and not from what they don’t see. Realistically no one can predict what the future holds. However there is enough evidence out there to determine if the person in charge is good enough for a certain position. Fact is PCB never gave Misbah the chance to develop as a head coach. They put the responsibility on him as a Head Coach and a Chief selector within two years of his retirement. Nobody deserves to be pushed this hard. Its not right and it could easily comeback to bite the team in the end.

    This dude had a chance as a leader already and we know how that went. You know he prefers “experienced” cricketers instead of cricketers who could be a potential great for Pakistan cricket. Were you not aware when he questioned the selection of Shaheen Afridi during the World Cup? To me whats more unrealistic is to expect someone to change his natural ways due to the position he’s got. I won’t accept it till I see it. Till than I will go off of what I have seen and not what I haven’t seen. If PCB was really serious about turning him into a head coach than they should have given his time to develop as one with other international teams.

    Misbah is going to be scrutinized big time. My predicition is he will eventually resign at some point when the heat gets unbearable but then again i might be wrong, the guy never once offered to resign in his 7 years as captain presiding over our worst ODI rankings.

    I remember during Imran khans stupid parades and marches he once said that if he becomes prime minister, Pakistan will become number 1 blah blah blah. Lol I think under Imran khans new system we are at our worse. Misbah who does not meet the job specification is now head coach and Selector. Only in Pakistan’s

    Pressure and heat is on Misbah.

    It’s a refreshing change though, a famed ex-cricketer walking the walk rather than spouting blame in the media. Taking the responsibility. I hope he succeeds.

    How it should be.

    Too many times people just turn on the captain despite the fact they don't necessarily get the team they want and the coaches who are paid literally to focus on tactics/coaching the team remain blameless.

    This is exactly what I have been writing for long - Kudos to PCB & WK. Now, this new management style might not be successful for PCT, but Cricket has to move out of that century long obsolete position of CS. I see the future Cricket management like this, though unlike Soccer, Captain will always play the most vital role in Cricket. Recently, Russell Domingo is given similar authority.

    Also, I am impressed with the Selectors - we better call them Scouts now, because they'll do exactly that scouting job for Misbah, Captain & Specialist Coaches. IICRC, these 6 are Coach/Asst. Coach of 6 regional teams, means they'll be looking after 32 top players (a mix bag of youth & experienced pool) closely. Also, it's a perfect balanced scorecard (system) that entire PAK, in the mold of six regional teams will be represented equally by 6 Scouts. No regional or club/city bias should be expected now.

    Last but not the list, now these 6 Scouts will watch at least 66 players playing every week as the coach/manager of 6 teams and they'll be involved in practice sessions of both (1st & 2nd) teams. If this doesn't work, I can safely say - I don't have any solutions for PCT's selection issues.

    This new role could turn out to revolutionary or a diaster.

    In theory it should work, because the first class coaches are doing most of the scouting, whilst Misbah is the supreme authority.

    But time will tell.

    Played the entire presentation on YouTube while driving back from work. While it is an unconventional solution, I was unable to figure out if the appointment of is just for one year? Wasim mentioned Misbah will be allowed to coach in the PSL and emphasized the next however many days (40 or 60) of cricket to be Misbah’s focus. Maybe I should just read the official release...but can someone confirm?

    I like the merging of roles to create a football style manager.

    And now there will be no deflecting blame or credit. All that happens is on Misbah. If players decline then it's on Misbah to a large extent, if players improve then it's thanks Misbah (and Waqar in case of bowlers). If the team improves then credit to Misbah and if the team's performance declines then once again the responsibility is solely on Misbah.

    There will be no deflection or excuses such as I wasn't given the team I want or my tactics weren't followed or the playing 11 wasn't according to what I intended. For the next few years Pakistan cricket team is Misbah's world and we are just living in it.

    Wasim Khan is right.

    Misbah is now selector and coach. He has lots of power and hence lots of accountability. If Pakistan doesn't do well, Misbah will probably get a lot of sticks and rightly so.

    He has a lot to answer for. Too much tinkering for a settled t20 team.

    Also of experimentation was needed, should have tried new faces like abid ali or zafar gohar, not tried and tested mentally weak players.

    Thank God for these two T20s vs SL B team....I hope everyone now understands the true capabilities and class of Umar Akmal, Shahzad and Sarfaraz.

    They are not international level players and must get disscarded ASAP. Unless our plan is to lose disgracefully vs all teams in future.

    Well as a player Misbah could save the team by playing and take the team out of trouble. Now as a coach nothing of that will help him as he can only talk. This is the difference between being a good player and now coaching.

    But when he brings back TTFs he can only blame himself.

    again, how will babar regress under Misbah?

    how does he have soo much pressure?

    Imad waseem batted well, so according to the same logic, Imad waseem is a better player than Babar?

    Plz provide logic in your criticism.

    Yes Misbah should be blamed for Umar Akmal and Shezad. But if babar doesnt know how to bat thats now Misbahs fault

    Misbah is being criticised mostly because of the selection of Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal.

    If we had lost the series with some newer players being tried, I don't think there would've been so much outrage.

    TO be honest he would had still been critisized.

    The selection of Umar akmal and Shezad was a big mistake by him,

    you also mentioned somewhere that he did made Sarfraz the coach and deserves blame for it.For the point, well i dont know how to reply.

    You are kind of right, but do you think he should as a coach removed Sarfraz as captain immideatly? Or shouldnt it be after a series or two?
    Look he has been already been removed from the Test side

    u for real? imad played the game he naturally plays bcz it was the need and done n dusted situation at tht time.. so nothing changed...

    with the garbage selected by the Misbah- babar azam had to force the pace bcz its clear like day n night tht the middle order rubbish cannot score 50 in between them....

    He thinks that Umar Akmal, Ahmad Shahzad, Asif Ali deserve more chances than Imam, Harris Sohail Abid ali and rizwan (these have played some impressive knocks but havent cemented their place just yet , bar Harris Sohail) so in his view these 4 should not get chance who have been performing in international cricket but the garbage of akmal and shahzad deserve chance ... amazing .. is tht logic enough?

    I have a feeling Pakistan will regress in LOI formats under Misbah. Signs are there.

    Akmal should never play. There are so many other better players.

    He loved spinners when he was captain. But he didn’t select a specialist spinner in either squad. Also Shehzad is not a T20 player and he was selected. Poor selections from Misbah.

    I won’t blame him for all our problems, but he deserves criticism for these defeats.
