With two major tournaments like the Asia Cup and Champions Trophy and also India coming over for a Test series this year, this year in the latter half become an important year for the Pakistani Cricket. As this half is approaching fast, news are appearing in the media that the Pakistani coach Geoff Lawson would not be returning to Pakistan to resume his duties as the coach. He is currently vacationing in Australia.
Geoff Lawson was appointed as coach last August after the tragic death of Bob Woolmer during the 2007 World Cup in Jamaica. He still has yet to show any achievement, and he has yet to meet a real test. During his tenure so far, nothing drastic has happened and things are as gloomy as they were during Woolmer’s tenure.
Director of the National cricket academy, Mudassar Nazar has also expressed his reservations over the conduct of Lawson, and he has said that Lawson lacks the commitment and the mettle to once again put Pakistani team on track.
Though Pakistan Cricket Board hasn’t confirmed Lawson’s departure, but things are cooking behind the curtains.More on:Bob Woolmer, Geoff Lawson, Mudassar Nazar, Pakistan, PCB
