KARACHI: After Pakistan lost to England in the limited over series in UAE and slipped down the ICC ODI and T20 rankings. Pakistan’s former batsman Mohammad Yousuf has advised to appoint only foreign coaches for the national team in order to improve its performances in the future.
According to Indian Express, Yousuf said, “I tell you the performances of the players and team will only improve under a foreign coach and support staff”. “If the present scenario continues Pakistan will go further down because next year you have to go to England and Australia for full series,” Yousuf said.
Yousuf said he didn’t see things improving under present head coach Waqar Younis. “No, I don’t think much will change. He has massive ego problems and personal likes and dislikes and he works on an agenda where he doesn’t want senior players in his side. I don’t think he can change himself so it is for the PCB to decide what they want to do. We all have a lot of respect and admiration for Waqar as a player but as a coach he has failed not once but twice. He has not learnt from his mistakes in his previous tenure,” Yousuf said.
After the 4-0 defeat in One-day International (ODI) series at the hands of England, Pakistan slide down to 6th position giving England a chance to climb to 5th position in ICC rankings. England gained 5 points in the ODI series victory over Pakistan to amass 111 points while Pakistan with 104 points is at 6th position.
