Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar joked that former captain Misbah-ul-Haq should have been named chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Akhtar made the quip after Misbah was appointed as Pakistan’s head coach and chief selector on Wednesday.
Akhtar congratulated Misbah for the dual role and hopes that the 45-year-old will turn Pakistan’s fortunes around.
Congratulations to @captainmisbahpk for the new 'dual' role of Head Coach as well as Chief Selector for Pakistan Cricket Team.
I am surprised he is not appointed the Chairman PCB as well along with it.
i am just kidding. I really hope he does wonders like before 🙂
