LAHORE - Pakistan’s cricket legend Javed Miandad has said that Pakistan cricket team needs an advisor not a coach.

Talking to the reporters, Miandad said that he had high expectations from Pakistan team, adding that the team would show outstanding performance in matches against Sri Lanka. Furthermore, the cricket legend has said that sometimes he is shocked over the perpetual injuries the player sustains during their practice, adding that such weaknesses if not recovered would lead to destruction. Miandad also extended his best wishes to Pakistan team for the upcoming matches which the team would play against Sri Lanka.

Miandad also questioned the nomination of former Test captain Zaheer Abbas for the International Cricket Council (ICC) presidency, saying his expertise would be of no use in a ceremonial post. “I can’t understand why Najam Sethi had last minute change of mind and talked about sending a former player for this purpose. I personally feel the ICC president’s job was the right one for Najam Sethi as it is a ceremonial post and has nothing to do with cricket,” he said.

Miandad, who has also thrice remained head coach of the national team, felt Zaheer should have been given a job by the PCB where his cricket expertise would come into play. “In the ICC in a ceremonial post he will be wasted,” he added.
