The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is not at all pleased with the cricket team's performance in the ongoing ICC World T20 2016 and has called for a mass exodus, which includes the team's head coach, the chief selector and present skipper Shahid Afridi, according to a report. Pakistan currently have two defeats and a win from three matches in the tournament.
According to Pakistan newspaper the Daily Times, the PCB management has asked cricketer-turned-commentator Rameez Raza and veteran bowler Wasim Akram to find a replacement for current Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis. Chief Selector Haroon Rasheed will also be replaced as will be Shahid Afridi.
Afridi will also be relieved of his captaincy duties after the end of the ICC World T20, as confirmed by Pakistan Cricket Board Chief Shaharyar Khan.
Another report from Twenty20 Wiki has, meanwhile, claimed that Akram himself is being zeroed in as a possible contender for the next head coach role for Pakistan while wicket-keeper Sarfraz Ahmed will possibly take over as the next captain following the end of the ICC World T20 2016.
"Wasim and Sarfraz are in the frame and likely to be given head roles," a source close to PCB told the news website.
While Akram has experiences in coaching as he was the bowling coach of Indian Premier League side Kolkata Knight Riders for many years and he recently was also appointed as the director and the bowling coach of Pakistan Super League side Islamabad United.
Sarfraz, on his part, was the skipper of PSL side Quetta Gladiators, who stood as the runners-up in the inaugural edition of the tournament this year.
