Geoff Lawson Dismissed from Pakistan’s Coach

The great former fast bowler from Australia Geoff Lawson has been relieved from the position of Pakistan coach.The newly appointed PCB chairman Ijaz butt issued an order saying that Geoff Lawson is relieved from Pakistan’s coach and the Australian has been paid three months of his salary as compensation.The PCB came to this decision since Lawson’s assessment were not pretty good and his performance as coach was not upto the mark.

Moreover the decision came since Pakistan has lost against India in the test series and failed to qualify in the finals of Asia cup held at Pakistan.The PCB chairman also said that Lawson is not useless but his work will not be useful for us.He also said that until a new coach is designated Lawson can continue with the team.The hunt for new coach is in progress and hopefully a new coach for Pakistan would be found quickly.Many former Pakistan Cricketers criticised Lawson for his poor coaching and pressed the PCB to sack him.On the other hand the legend Imran khan slashed the board that the Coach is not only the sole reason for the Pakistan cricket’s downfall, it is due to the baseless domestic cricket and the feud among the top players. There is not much encouragement given to the domestic cricket and  politics plays the vital role in the selection committee.Even Javed Miandiad agreed to this.They also said that before the India’s tour in Pakistan a new coach should be appointed, so that the Coach can get into act before the series and prepare the team as he planned.

The  PCB said that the Captain Shoaib Malik’s performance will be reviewed in December and decision will be taken at that time.So we can expect a lot of change in the setup of the Pakistan’ Cricket.
