The 63-year-old believed that the foundation of cricket had been ripped out
Pakistan’s legendary former cricketer Javed Miandad, while talking to media personnel in Lahore on Friday, expressed his concern over the future of Pakistan cricket.
The 63-year-old believed that the foundation of cricket had been ripped out and replaced which does not happen anywhere in the world
“I do not want to intrude in the workings in the PCB. Whatever the board is doing, time will clear if it is right or wrong. I hope things turn out well. In the last 20 years, cricket has not been played the way it is being played currently. Throughout the world, they never change their foundation in the way cricket is played. They fine-tune it,” Miandad said.
The former legend stated that he played his cricket with dignity and does not care about the opinions of other people.
“I played cricket with dignity. Everyone knows that. Even if people don’t agree with that, I don’t care. People give me love and respect which is my income. People here are envious and hypocritical. Every player is like a kid and I wish them the best of luck,” he said.
Miandad represented Pakistan in 124 Tests and accumulated 8,832 runs, which included 23 centuries and 43 fifties, at an average of 52.57.
He also scored 7,381 runs in 233 ODIs, which included eight centuries and 50 half-centuries, at an average of 41.70.
