PCB faces inquiry over England tour failure


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will face an inquiry from the Sports Ministry which has asked it to explain the reasons for the national team’s poor performance on their recent tour to England besides the facilities being given to the foreign coach and trainers.

The letter has been written by former Test pacer Sarfraz Nawaz, who is now on the Ministry’s Sport Committee and is known to be a vocal critic of the present dispensation in the PCB.

“We have been told that the Ministry wants to hold an inquiry into the team’s performance and wants the details about our coach and trainers. We have no problems doing that,” PCB’s Director Cricket Operations Saleem Altaf said on Friday.

Sarfraz has been critical of the PCB’s decision to appoint Bob Woolmer as the national coach.

The Board has also employed two other trainers — Murray Stevenson and Darryn Lifsun — from South Africa and recently named former Test leg-spinner, Mushtaq Ahmed as the team’s assistant coach. Altaf said the PCB had only been asked to furnish details to the Ministry and given no other details.
