LAHORE - Chairman PCB Ijaz Butt Tuesday met former Test cricketers Mohsin Khan and Asian Bradman Zaheer Abbas in what is being tipped as a public relations exercise. Sources claim Butt is trying to gather the support of as many former cricketers as he can. But it was not clear as to what job they (Mohsin and Zaheer) would be offered in the PCB set up. The meetings come amid reports that the board plans to form a team of coaches in a bid to engage former cricketers. The PCB management is working on the idea that engaging former greats is the only answer to criticism from a group of dissident former cricketers who have been coming heavy on the PCB for its policies. It has also been learnt that the PCB is also planning to bring former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif as assistant coach on the demand of captain Younis Khan who wanted to concentrate on his batting rather than planning and training. Similarly, PCB chairman also met former opener Saeed Anwar and discussed various ways by which his services could be utilised. Bringing more former Test cricketers in PCB's fold as coaches could buy more time for the current dispensation. Instead of opening up more criticism from the remaining lot of former greats, the board wants to bring them on board as an answer to those who resigned against the PCB policies. Reports said that the board is paying heed to Younis Khan's demand of a young support staff ahead of the Champions Trophy. Javed Miandad was appointed as batting consultant and now the chairman has met Mohsin and Abbas. Butt said: "I have always had great admiration for Mohsin as a cricketer. I had a very fruitful meeting with him last week where we discussed the batting problems in Pakistan team. "Mohsin has shown his interest in assisting the PCB in the batting department." "Zaheer has a wealth of experience and know how of the game and I am sure he has a lot to offer to cricket in Pakistan," said the Chairman. He further added: "The Governing Board last week discussed Miandad's role in cricket. I am pleased to have Javed serving as batting advisor for the team. Javed was my first choice as coach but owing to his personal problems at that time, he could not take up that role. However, Javed will be contributing a lot to cricket in future," said Butt.
