Babar Azam, Saqlain Mushtaq and Mohammad Rizwan recommended PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja of bringing overseas coaches to the environment of the Pakistan team
Pakistan captain Babar Azam and wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan have recommended Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja to make foreign coaches part of the team management.
While talking in the 'New Year Greeting' video, Ramiz Raja revealed that he talked to the duo and interim head coach Saqlain Mushtaq regarding team management. The trio formed a general opinion of bringing overseas coaches to the environment of the Pakistan team.
"I talked to Babar, Saqlain, Rizwan and they opined to integrate foreign coaches in the national team's dressing room," Ramiz said.
"But my way of thinking is quite open on this as I think that locals should be involved on away tours. You need regular coaches only to create the best dressing room environment," he added.
Ramiz further said that there was a big goal not to involve so many technical coaches during the Bangladesh and West Indies series.
"I wanted to see how they can stand on their feet with their own thinking. One can't have any idea of greatness when he can't grind in the difficult situation without any support," he maintained.
It must be noted that the cricket board has already advertised for the Men in Green's coaching staff.
The cricket board is looking for five player-support personnel roles, which also include power-hitting and high-performance coaches.
