Former Pakistan captain Zaheer Abbas has offered to become the Pakistan Cricket Board chairman in a bid to salvage the PCB's sinking reputation in the country.

"Pakistan cricket is facing problems because of variety of reasons and if the government asks me to head the cricket board I would be willing to do it as we need to set our cricket system right," Abbas said.

The PCB is drawing flak for its handling of the game and a parliamentary committee on sports has even recommended that the Board officials be sacked.

Meanwhile, Zaheer said the fielding standards of the team had plunged to new lows in recent matches and there was a need to have a professional fielding coach attached with the team.

"When I say a fielding coach I mean someone like the Australian fielding coach the Indian team has appointed."
