Pakistan’s former Azhar Mahmood spokes up after PCB not to give Extension. Azhar Mahmood, Pakistan’s former All-rounder spoke about his recently completed period as a Pakistan’s bowling coach. The Pakistan Cricket Board PCB decided not to grant Azhar Mahmood an extension after Mahmood’s three-year contract expired in 2019.
Azhar Mahmood Said that:
Unfortunately, according to the experts, we didn’t produce, but there are problems with the physical culture of players in Pakistan, there are many unfit players. Our field, batting, and bowling improved. You have to give people time, it can’t happen overnight.
During the period when Pakistan Cricket Board PCB never decided on a full-time captain, that was a problem.
The 44-year-old also lamented PCB’s lack of conviction about who should be the full-time captain on the national side.
Azhar Mahmood also praised former Pakistani head coach Mickey Arthur and said that:
Mickey has served South Africa, he has served Australia. It’s been around for a while, so why not, I think I’d do a great job,” he said. “I’d love to work with Mickey, we had a great relationship and if he becomes head coach and I had the opportunity to stay to work in England, you can’t ask for anything more than that
Mickey is very passionate, very emotional. He does things with his heart 100%, whatever he does. I have a great time working with him and learned a lot from him and I think he’s the right man for Pakistan
The former right-wing player also said he open to opportunities in domestic and international cricket. I’m looking at my options, it’s good to have a little break, but I’ve already had offers, my phone has been ringing a lot and that was also the case while I was doing the job with Pakistan.
