ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shahryar Khan said that the system of Pakistan cricket was “completely flawed”, and said there is a possibility of major changes within the team after the conclusion of the national cricket team’s tour of Bangladesh.
Addressing a press conference during the inauguration of a cricket ground in the federal capital, chief of Pakistan’s cricket expressed his anger over the national cricket team’s defeats at the hands of Bangladesh.
He was of the view that the Pakistan team had not just lost to the Bangladesh team but rather had lost miserably.
Khan attributed the Green-shirts’ loss to flaws in the fitness, coaching and organisation’s system.
Hinting at a change of guard, he said that the senior players have had their time with the team and now it was time for new players to replace them.
Shahryar Khan’s views echoed the views expressed by former world cup winning captain Imran Khan who had expressed shock over Pakistan’s defeat to Bangladesh, terming the whitewash ‘unimaginable’, and had attributed the same factors to the loss.
The green-shirts suffered their worst-ever defeat against Bangladesh, losing the ODI series 0-3 which was followed by a loss in the sole T20 international match.
Injury-plagued Pakistan and hosts Bangladesh will now face-off in a two Test series which starts in Khulna from April 28.
