Karachi:

The Pakistan Cricket Board should dump Intikhab Alam and rope in a younger coach, who has played in the modern era, for the national team, feels former captain Imran Khan.

"Intikhab belongs to the old school of thought and I think Pakistan team needs a younger coach someone who has played in the modern era and understands the requirements of modern day cricket. It would be a good idea to have someone younger in his place as coach," Imran said.

The legendary all-rounder, who has now become a prominent national politician, also said the team must have a good trainer to improve the standard of fielding.

Ironically Intikhab who is now 67 was manager-cum-coach of the Pakistan team that won the 1992 World Cup under the captaincy of Imran Khan in Australia.

Imran also supported Pakistan captain Younis Khan's statement that Twenty20 was pure fun and entertainment.

"I would have liked to play this form of cricket because I liked to play positively and aggressively," he said.
