New powerless job description prompted miffed Miandad to quitJanuary 29th, 2009 - 12:57 pm ICT by ANI
Karachi, Jan.29 (ANI): Javed Miandad, who quit from the post of Pakistan Cricket Boards (PCB) Director General on Tuesday, has said that he resigned from the post because of the job description devised for him by the PCB authorities, which did not provide him enough opportunity to work for the promotion of national cricket.
Seemingly upset by the behaviour of the top PCB officials Miandad said : “I was hurt to know that as Director General, my role would be to look after domestic cricket and help develop the grounds.
The PCB can appoint a manager to perform those roles, they don”t need me,” The News quoted Miandad, as saying.
The recent controversy was sparked-off when the PCB sacked the captain of the national team, Shoaib Malik, after Sri Lanka handed over Pakistan their heaviest defeat in one day internationals at home by 234 runs.
Irked by the sudden dismissal of the national skipper, Miandad also resigned.
“You can”t kick out a captain on the basis of one or two matches. That’’s like setting a bad example,” he said.
“The only way you can go forward is by giving your players due respect. There is no guarantee that Younis (Khan) will not suffer a similar fate in the future,” Miandad added.
He said that he had several plans for the upliftment of the national cricket in the country, but needed more powers to initiate them.
Challenging the capability of the present top officials of the PCB Miandad said:”If you want results from me then you have to give me enough powers. I”ve given more than 40 years of my life to cricket.Nobody in the Board knows more about cricket than me. (ANI)
