KARACHI, Jan 10: Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis have been asked to meet the Cricket Committee of the country’s board in the next few days for a review of the team’s poor show in New Zealand.
A senior official of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that the meeting will most likely be held in Lahore but the date has not been finalised as yet. Batting coach Younis Khan has not been invited for the meeting.
“Younis has just started his contract with the PCB with the New Zealand tour while Misbah and Waqar have completed 16 months on the job, that is why the cricket committee is keen to discuss cricket issues with them,” the official told PTI.
Misbah is also expected to address a press conference on Monday in Lahore as the Pakistan team players and officials have started returning from New Zealand.
Speculation is rife about the future of Misbah and Waqar after the poor show in New Zealand.
A source said Misbah and Waqar are expected to face some tough questions at the meeting of the cricket committee headed by former Test wicketkeeper Saleem Yousuf. (PTI)
