The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is planning to offer some top roles to the two veteran players of the national side. The board has plans to offer some administrative roles to Misbah Ul Haq and Younis Khan after the two players retire from the international cricket. Currently, both Misbah and Younis are in the Caribbean Islands playing the 3-match Test series against West Indies.
Prior to the commencement of the series, both players had announced that the series in West Indies will be their last assignment in international cricket. It was Misbah Ul Haq who had first announced his retirement. Veteran batsman Younis Khan followed the Test skipper and made his retirement announcement a couple of days later. Later, Younis had hinted that he might withdraw his decision but ultimately settled with his call.
Now, as per the reports in Geo.tv, the PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan has expressed his plans about roping in the services of the two stalwarts of Pakistan cricket in administrative roles of the board and the team. During an interaction at the Pindi Stadium at Rawalpindi, Shaharyar Khan was asked about the future of Misbah Ul Haq and Younis Khan. It was just then that the PCB chairman affirmed the same.
“When both Misbah and Younis would return from West Indies we will give them a proposal regarding work with the board and hopefully they will accept it,” quoted Shaharyar Khan.
Currently, the two players have been achieving milestones in the ongoing Test series against West Indies. The win in the first Test marked Misbah’s silver jubilee of wins as the Test captain. Also in the match, Younis Khan became the first batsman from Pakistan to complete 10000 Test runs.
Earlier, former cricketer Zaheer Abbas had also quoted that the board must make full use of the experience of Younis and Misbah. “Young players can learn a lot from Misbah and Younis and their experience would prove useful to players in many ways,” he had quoted.
