Sports: Cricket: Cricket needs more strategic decisions than reactions: Wasim Bari

Karachi: Whether forced into a resignation or not, the resigning of skipper Mohammad Hafeez is not a solution or a remedy for underperformance of the national team in future and the board need to make strategic decisions rather than reacting, feels former Pakistan skipper Wasim Bari.

“As a captain Hafeez had a big role to play but he is not the only one responsible for this below par showings. The team management and the selectors were equally responsible,” Wasim Bari, a former chief selector, said.

“Whether forced into a resignation or not, such resignations could not be considered to provide a remedy for such below par showing in future. PCB must take more strategic decisions in order to lift the calibre of the team for the upcoming World Cup, which demands more from cricketers,” Wasim added.

He added that the problem didn’t only lies with the team or the management but board was equally responsible for it since the board is looking after the cricketing affairs for the country.

Another former great Javed Miandad also echoed Wasim’s words saying that now focus should be future performance and decisions should be taken considering the future.
