Following Pakistan’s five-wicket loss against England in the final match of the T20 World Cup 2022, former Pakistan captain Javed Miandad questioned the presence of foreign coaches in the team.

Miandad, who has also served as the coach of the national team in the past, said that bringing foreign mentors or coaches in the team takes away the opportunity of former players to be a part of the national set-up.

As per the legendry cricketer, this kind of mindset by Pakistan team management makes the future of their players insecure and it is the main cause behind ‘match fixing’ cases in the past.

Revealing further on fixing Miandad said, “Apne logon ko dekhein, apne logon ne jo cricket kheli hai... Ye jo players khel rahe hain, ab ye aaj khel rahe hain. Inka future kya hai? Unko bhi pata hai ki aaj maine kuch nahi kiya, toh kal main kya karunga? Fixing iss vajah se hui thi, ke hamara koi pata nahi hai, ki kal kaat naa de humko.”

Notably, England successfully chased down the 138-run target set by Pakistan in the final match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to emerge champions of the T20 World Cup 2022.
