Wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal lashed out at former head coach Mickey Arthur, saying he seriously damaged Pakistan cricket.

Akmal noted that instead of thinking about which players to select, foreign coaches like Arthur solely go on a player’s statistics and pick them based on that.

However, the 39-year-old pointed out that current head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and the national selectors are doing the exact same thing.

Akmal questioned how players are getting into the Test team based on their performances in T20 cricket.

He further added that players should perform well over a long period of time before being called up to the national team.

“You can’t just pick players for the Test format from those who perform well in T20Is. This is how it is going right now. This is causing damage to Pakistan cricket,” he said on his YouTube channel as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

“The PCB should put more thought into how they select players for the national side. They should think about the process and policy of selection. They can’t just put a laptop in front and show stats.

“That is how foreign coaches thrive here like Mickey Arthur. They didn’t make cricket better in the country, on the contrary, they damaged it significantly. The same policy is being applied now. It doesn’t work like that.

“What is the vision and policy of the individuals selecting the players? This is what is happening. They are looking at players bowling in the nets. If somebody bowls one good spell in four matches then you say he has done really well. We have to rectify all of these issues.”

  2. Akmal family pls put off ur pads and leave the cricket grounds of our country. You all are even not eligible for our domestic format.
    You all are feeding the bull shit in the minds and try to gain some repo in the game.
    But dear your game is over.

  3. The best thing Mickey Arthur did was kick the Akmals out of the Pakistan team. We won multiple series, even Champions Trophy under Mickey, and we also discovered many gems during his tenure that are still playing at a high level in the international side today because he played them. Pakistan has high regards for Mickey Arthur’s services to our cricket

  4. Yaar yeh chutia hai kia?
    Mickey ne hi Pakistan ki cricket ko behtar kia tha aur yeh misbah ne toh team tabah kardi hai.

  5. The best service Micky Arthur did to Pakistan cricket is to throw umer akmal out of the team. It’s that simple
