Former Pakistan batsman Mohsin Khan has slammed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for hiring legendary pace bowler Waqar Younis as head coach once again.

Younis was head coach back in 2010-11, but quit due to personal reasons.

“They lied in their own house,” Khan said. “They had said that the candidates will be shortlisted, then there will be interviews but they trashed the whole process and made fun of everything. They threw dust in everyone’s eyes. There were no criteria. I was a deserving candidate but I was getting messages that the whole process was a total farce.

“They should have picked whoever they wanted as coach and appointed him but they should not have made a fool of the others. It happened before as well before the Asia Cup and World T20. It happened to Waqar as well at that time. Without any process they made Moin Khan coach. Moin is like my younger brother, but that was also not correct. PCB is not their personal property; it is the board of 180-190 million people of Pakistan. They spoiled two years of the team by bringing a so-called qualified coach (Dav Whatmore). They threw dust in the fans’ eyes. They have played with Pakistan’s name, with its respect.”
