Miandad unhappyover Maliks sudden sackingJanuary 28th, 2009 - 2:02 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Jan.28 (ANI): Shoaib Maliks removal from the captaincy of the national squad has sparked fresh controversy in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), as the Boards Director General, Javed Miandad, has openly expressed his displeasure over his sudden sacking.
Miandad said that he would have personally liked to solve the problem in the team, and that Malik should have been given more time to sought out things. Wrong message would be sent out by the Board by sacking Malik so abruptly just few days after the it had retained him as captain for an indefinite period,” The Nation quoted Miandad, as saying.
He (Miandad) said that he is willing to work with Malik for a short while to sort out things in the team,” a highly placed source in the PCB said.
Meanwhile, reports filtering-in from the PCB suggest that coach Intikhab Alam is not happy with Miandads offer to work with the team and Malik to set things right.
Miandad during his days of coaching the national squad had resigned from his post three times over differences between him and the captain, selectors, or the officials of the PCB. (ANI)
