Najam Sethi has said in reply to Question about Misbah ul Haq that how do you see him as a head coach and chief selector?
He replied,”I avoid talking on cricket matters as I want the new administration to deliver so I don’t want to respond but since it is being asked frequently so I am responding to the matter ”
He said, “Misbah is a great captain and successful man an educated and learned person also has leadership qualities. He is a successful captain but would two positions simultaneously for a person to be convenient.
There is one problem with selectors as selectors should be at first-class cricket grounds to spot new talents and how are they playing as they have to do an assessment and gather scorings on their judgment so it’s a full-time job they have to be in the stadium for long hours.
How would he select, just on the basis of statistics as it is not enough.
Coach can’t be a chief selector as both are full-time jobs now only the administration and Misbah will answer that. I think a head coach should always be foreigner because our head coaches have ego problems as in Pakistan you make star players the head coaches which later on must have attitude problems. He said that I am not saying that foreign players don’t have ego problems but worldwide not all coaches have been stars of cricket.
