Former cricketer also stated that Misbah still has a huge responsibility on his shoulders
Former Pakistan cricketer-turned-commentator, Ramiz Raja, believes that the Men in Green head coach, Misbahul Haq, needs to ditch the “old timer” approach.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Raja advised Misbah to adopt revolutionary coaching methods for the betterment of Pakistan team.
“Hopefully the new chief selector will adopt a positive attitude because Misbah needs a lot of help. Misbah has a typical mindset which is based on safety and security and lacks experimentation. He follows a set pattern which is basically an old timer’s game,” said Raja.
“This is a new beginning and I hope he introduces revolutionary methods in coaching, which is not easy, and builds a team with mentally tough players,” he added.
Raja also stated that Misbah, who resigned from his role as chief selector on Wednesday, still has a huge responsibility on his shoulders.
“I think Misbah will feel more comfortable in this role [only coaching] but there is still a huge responsibility on his shoulders. He must not think that there will no longer be any criticism. What he needs to do is handle the constructive criticism well and don’t worry about the pointless remarks,” he said.
“Fans desperately want you [Misbah] to be successful and our best wishes are with you,” he said. “Don’t think that everyone wants to bring you down but if you don’t deliver things will get messy,” he added.
