Here is the Reason .Why Asim Kamal has criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board.
Why Asim Kamal has criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board
Based on political concerns between the two countries, India and Pakistan did not participate in any bilateral series. The sides haven’t played red-ball cricket against each other since the 2008 terror assault.
Only the Asia Cup and the ICC tournaments confront the 2 countries against each other. Asim, who has played in 12 Tests for Pakistan, believes that if the Men in Green were often competing versus tough opponents, scheduling a series with India would not have been a problem.
“Our cricket is ruined because we focused too much on the India-Pakistan match in focus. In order to relieve the pressure, other teams should also be given attention,” said Asim Kamal.
Senior players do not help upcoming young stars because they are scared: Asim Kamal
Asim Kamal then addressed the culture of Pakistan cricket, stating that experienced players do not coach young cricketers for fear of losing their position. Ramiz Raja was just chosen as the PCB’s new chairman. Opening up about this, Kamal remarked that the chairman faces a difficult challenge in resolving issues in Pakistan cricket.
“Senior players do not help upcoming young stars because they are scared of being replaced by them. This trend has continued for a very long while and it needs to be eradicated. He [Ramiz] will have to make bold decisions to fix the Pakistan cricket. He needs to expose and sack those who have been eating away like termites,” the former cricketer added.
When Pakistan revealed their team for the T20 World Cup, the selectors were criticized for leaving out a few crucial players. Asim Kamal also spoke on the World Cup team and player selections.
“Sharjeel Khan is the number one-hitter at the moment, Sohaib Maqsood is a great player and can be used with a little counseling. Also, if Fakhar Zaman is included in the World Cup squad, it will be the best decision,” Asim Kamal added.
