As long as the Prime Minister will choose the Prime Minister, Pakistan cricket will be affected: Former captain Latif. Rashid Latif said that the PSL selected players should stop playing at the national squad on the performance of Pakistan Super League. The defeat in One Day series against Australia will have the effect players and their performances in the World Cup 2019. Rashid Latif alleged that the PCB chairman, Ehsan Mani, is actually reason behind series lossagainst Australia.
In an interview he said that the head coach, chief selector and the captain is being criticized but nothing is taking notice of the real responsibility of failure. According to Rashid Latif, Pakistan is the only country where the head of the cricket board is selected by prime minister. Prime Minister Imran Khan directed the Chairman PCB to co-ordinate a national plan in the recent meeting.
On a question, he said that Chairman PCB works exhaustively. But Chairman of PCB should hire on regular elections basis and have salary. Rashid Latif said that till the chairman will be elected by Prime Minister, Pakistan cricket will be affected till then. Former captain said that the board chairman’s responsibility to see what was going on under his command.
Rashid Latif said on a question that two years ago, he discovered Abid Ali when he scored the score from the port Qasim authority. Abid Ali was given an opportune time against Australia when Imam ul Haq was sick or otherwise it was possible that Abid Ali had to wait for a few years to express his capabilities. Rashid Latif raised the objections that why the PCB chairman announces selection committee, managing director and captain while there is no such thing in the world. Hopefully, PCB patterns, Chief of the Chief Imran Khan, will also see this issue.
