Legendary Pakistan batsman Javed Miandad believes that someone local should replace Mickey Arthur as the national team’s head coach.
While Miandad feels that foreign coaches just can’t get the job done, he did make exceptions for the likes of West Indies legend Sir Viv Richards and England great Sir Ian Botham.
However, unless it is someone of that caliber, Miandad urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to appoint a local coach to take charge of the men in green.
“If greats like Sir Viv Richards or Sir Ian Botham were brought in, then one can understand what caliber they can bring in Pakistan cricket, otherwise foreign coaches cannot carry on with our players,” Miandad was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder.
“A person who has played cricket practically all his life can coach players better than the one who just sits on a computer and analyses things scientifically.”
