The cricketer had first established himself as the head coach way back in 1998.However, while his second and the third coaching stints were majorly ceased because of the uncertain and awful performances of the overall side, Miandad had an utterly controversial time while coaching Pakistan during the 1998-99 period.

For teams like Bangladesh and England, Gibson had served as a bowling coach along with coaching the WI team from 2010 to 2014. However while serving South African cricket from 2017 to 2019, Gibson as a head coach was controversially criticized for his remarks against the retirement of AB de Villiers during the 2019 World Cup.
8. John Buchanan
when it came to helming the KKR side during the initial years of the IPL, Buchanan had to eventually face an ordeal. Hence with trying to impose his unorthodox way of playing, many other KKR players also seemed to be unhappy under Buchanan’s stint which then immediately brought his sacking after the end of IPL 2009.
7. Peter Moores
Peter Moores, who had coached England twice unfortunately had wrangled himself in a controversial feud with the former skipper Kevin Pietersen back in 2008-09. Before the odious incident, Moores was named as England’s head coach right after the 2007 World Cup where England had reasonably performed.
6. Bob Woolmer
Before coaching the Pakistan team, Bob Woolmer had coached South Africa where he had made them a heavyweight in the ODIs. His innovative coaching style also made the Proteas enjoy the best success rate in the format but an unfortunate exit in the 1999 World Cup eventually brought in his resignation.
5. Ramesh Powar
Although Ramesh Powar might be now treasuring his reappointment as the head coach of the Indian Women’s team, the former India off-spinner definitely had endured an ordeal during his first controversial stint. Powar was elected as a head coach back in August 2018, his immediate first assignment was to make the Women’s team triumph in the 2018 Women’s World T20.
4. Mickey Arthur
Over the years, Mickey Arthur has coached several international teams since the year 2005. Especially from 2005 till 2013, he was the head coach of heavyweight teams like South Africa and Australia, but a controversial sacking in the year 2013 from the Australian board eventually then made him oscillate towards other subsequent teams.
3. Kapil Dev
Well, unfortunately even our beloved 1983 World Cup-winning captain had to endure an ordeal when the legend wanted to soar team India alongside Sachin Tendulkar back in 1999. During Sachin’s captaincy stint from 1999, Kapil Dev was eventually selected to accompany him as a head coach which sadly was an occurrence to forget.
2. Anil Kumble
Just like Kapil Dev, even the legendary spinner Anil Kumble had to leave his coaching post. While it seemed like a new dawn for team India especially in the Tests matches where India had lost just a single game and had won 12 out for their 17 Tests matches under Kumble’s stint, some players including skipper Virat Kohli seemed to be unhappy with his coaching style.
1. Greg Chappell
Well in the early years of the 2000s, the former India head coach John Wright had worked and gelled tremendously well with team India that again led the BCCI to search for a foreign coach. While there might have been other prolific options to pick and choose, skipper Sourav Ganguly seemed to be reluctant to bring Chappell as the next head coach.
