Aamir Sohail flays PCB for its inability to find Misbah's successor

Karachi [Pakistan], Nov.22 : Former Pakistan opener Aamir Sohail has criticised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for its inability to find Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq's successor, accusing the cricket body of "enjoying perks" and doing nothing so as to find the next captain.

Sohail, who captained the side in six Tests, said Misbah, for so long, has been hinting about his retirement but still the PCB has failed to find his successor which ultimately shows the inability of the selection committee.

"This shows that the board is only there to enjoy perks and have done no homework on Misbah's replacement," he was quoted as saying by Express Tribune.

Earlier, during the Christchurch Test, Misbah became the first skipper to lead Pakistan in 50 games.

"Absolutely no sense in giving international retirement game for Afridi": Aamir Sohail

London [UK], Oct.8 : Former Pakistan test opener and selector Aamir Sohail has said that he is totally perplexed by media reporting on a bizarre request by Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi for a farewell match.

In an article for PakPassion.net, Sohail said, "Now let's be honest here and recognize the fact that Afridi has served Pakistan well in the past. However, let us also remember that Afridi has announced his intention to retire on a number of occasions which doesn't help his case. On top of that, when a player wants to play a final game, he would like to play that match in front of home crowds. Since there is no international cricket being played in Pakistan at the moment, how exactly will he have a farewell game in front of a home crowd?"
