Javed Miandad Lashes Out At PM Imran Khan For Ruining Pakistan Cricket
Karachi: Javed Miandad has dropped a bombshell!
One of Pakistan’s all-time greatest batsmen, Miandad has claimed that his former teammate and current Prime Minister Imran Khan has ruined Pakistan cricket.
“All officials in the PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) do not know the ABC of the sport. I will talk to Imran Khan personally about the sad state of affairs. I will not leave anyone that is not right for our country. You have brought a person (Wasim Khan) from abroad, if he steals from us how will you even catch him? Has everyone in Pakistan passed away that you need someone from outside? I want the people of Pakistan to rise. If you don’t have a better person in the entire country then you should look outside, but that is not the case,” Miandad said in a video released on his YouTube channel.
Lashing out at Pakistan’s only World Cup-winning captain for not paying attention on the functioning of PCB, Miandad said: “I was your (Imran Khan’s) captain, not the other way around. I was the one who pulled your strings. You think no one other than you knows about cricket. You should start thinking about yourself and your surroundings. You should start thinking about the people you have kept in the PCB before it’s too late,” Miandad remarked.
He further felt that the decision to discontinue departmental cricket in Pakistan had left many young cricketers unemployed.
“The players that are currently playing should have a big future in cricket. I don’t want these players to end as labourers in future. They have left players unemployed after dumping the departments and now they cannot offer employment themselves. I’d said this before as well, but they didn’t understand,” he added.
