Lahore: Former Pakistan captain and batting legend Javed Miandad claimed that he appointed Imran Khan as prime minister, but the prime minister lost his way and even lost his cricket player.
In a speech on the YouTube channel, Javed Miandad said that the Pakistan Cricket Committee (PCB) has appointed incompetent people.
Miandad said that he was disappointed to see Sarfraz Ahmed, the captain of the 2017 Champions League, fulfilling his 12th man duties.
“People all over the world have disliked the incident. I had also been the captain and I feel disappointed as Sarfraz should have been given respect. I tell this to the management and the PCB, if there is no need of a senior player then he should be sent back. This was not a good tradition set,” he said.
Javed Miandad also backed the Pakistan team, saying the Green-shirts haven’t lost the series against England yet, and should rectify their mistakes in the games ahead.
“Winning or losing are part of the game. Don’t worry, just rectify the mistakes you have done. Sit together and identify them and don’t repeat.
“Players should keep their morale and passion high for the country as the whole nation was watching them with high hopes.”
