PCB asks Miandad to become coach again

Karachi:

They might be at loggerheads but that has not stopped Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ejaz Butt from offering the coaching job of the national team to former captain and PCB's Director General Javed Miandad.

Butt's offer came at the hearing of the Senate standing committee on sports in Islamabad yesterday which was held to discuss the state of cricket and also the ongoing feud between Butt and Miandad.

Miandad told the committee that Butt was ignoring and bypassing him in important matters and was not willing to give him an assignment which is in line with his status as a former Test captain and coach.

Butt told the committee that he had a lot of respect for Miandad's abilities as a cricketer and had previously also offered him the job of coaching the team.

"Butt renewed the coaching offer to Miandad at the hearing pointing out to the members that Miandad's real expertise lay in his cricketing skills and acumen and he was best suited to take on a coaching assignment," a member said.

"But Miandad again made it clear that due to his busy schedule and domestic issues he could not take up a full time coaching assignment," the member added.

He said the committee heard both the former players patiently and the Senate committee Chairman formed a sub committee which he is heading himself to try to bring a truce between the two former players.
