KARACHI: Ex Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Moin khan believe indian pattern virat Kohli He is the only hitter among the current generation that is destined to break many more records and become a legend.
The former test captain, who finished his international career in the 2004 local series against India, lamented that the quality of batters and bowlers would have been reduced compared to the era of the 80s and 90s.
I see Kohli as the only one among the current generation of hitter who is destined to break many records and become a legend, he said on a television show.
However, Khan was disappointed with the quality of Cricket ers in the current Pakistan team.
"I look at the Pakistan team and we lack match-winners or game-changers like we had in the '80s or '90s. When I was in the team, there were so many match-winners and we all knew someone would do it that day. That was class."
The former chief selector and Pakistan team manager lamented that Pakistan Cricket had fallen behind Indian Cricket because of lack of match-winners.
Dhoni-embed I give credit Mahendra Singh Dhoni for changing the face of Indian Cricket . He really turned them around and saw through what Saurav Ganguly had started. That is why India is producing so many quality players and they have strong bench strength," he said.
Khan also criticised Pakistan head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq for accepting the dual responsibility.
"In our Cricket culture, which is different to other nations, this experiment is not working. Imagine the state of mind of a player in the dressing room. If he shares something about his game or personal life with the head coach, which players do, he must think twice about it because the head coach is also the chief selector," he said.
Khan said when he was manager and chief selector of the Pakistan team before the 2015 World Cup, the former chairman of the board, Najam Sethi had also offered him the post of head coach.
Sethi Sahib said to do all three jobs, but I said thank you because I knew it wouldn't work in our culture, and I think it's too heavy a burden for one person. As a manager, you can afford to be the selection manager as you are. part of the tour selection committee. But Misbah should have refused and I think he will regret his decision later, he said.
He also criticised Misbah's indecisiveness as head coach and chief selector and said it was hurting Pakistan Cricket and was halting development of players.
Look, when I was the manager, I saw how undecided Misbah could be, so I was surprised when the board offered him two of those key positions, which require quick and firm decision-making, he said.
sarfraz-embed Khan also lamented the treatment received from the former captain. Sarfaraz Ahmed .
You can't imagine that happening anywhere else. It was sad and it wasn't necessary. Not only did he fire him as captain in all three formats, but he also left him as a player, he said.
Sarfaraz enters this team at any time and was eliminated when he was becoming a good and safe leader and increasingly safe and mature. I hope you realize your mistake and bring it back.
