Pakistan Cricket and One Man Show
They say that the lion is the king of the jungle, but the power of the elephant cannot be ignored. Similarly, hockey has the status of a national sport within Pakistan, but cricket is also an elephant whose existence cannot be denied in Pakistan. If you look at the history of cricket, you will always see the One Man Show. Sometimes the chairman is the cricket board king. Sometimes a great player will be chosen as a selector and sometimes a strong coach will refuse. If this is not the case then the captain will be rebellious but it has never happened that everyone remains within their jurisdiction, Rennes are undoubtedly has been a loss for Pakistan cricket
With the recent World Cup 2019 defeats against India and the West Indies, the team’s performance in the remaining matches was good. These two defeats left such a deep impact on the team that even the semi-finals were dreamed and coach Mike Arthur was blamed. In my view, he is undoubtedly responsible One Man Show legendary batsman inzamam ul haq, because unbeaten interference in the final XI and team matters since the team selection before the World Cup has had a profound impact on the team’s performance.
The procedure adopted for selection of a new coach is also a question mark. After the appointment of Misbah-ul-Haq, the post of Chief Selector, like the New Zealand model, was also handed over. Is Misbah-ul-Haq able to do justice to his responsibilities? If not, who will answer it? Apparently this is a very good decision because Misbah-ul-Haq is well aware of modern cricket but how well Misbah-ul-Haq uses it in Pakistan’s system will tell you in time. It all depends on how well they run unconfident captain Sarfraz Ahmed or how he manages to role play and win the title of One Man show .
- On the other hand, Misbah-ul-Haq should be separated from the team soon after admitting his mistakes, otherwise the One Man Show does not last long.
