Former Pakistan batting great Zaheer Abbas advised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to go for all-local coaching staff for the national team.

Zaheer Abbas said that the PCB had hired many foreign coaches in the past and have experienced mixed results.

“Therefore, it is better to hire like-minded local coaching staff who can together benefit the team and players,” the ex-Pakistan captain said.

Abbas further said “Our cricketers are highly patriotic people who can pass their skills to the current players with utmost dedication. I think local coaches must be given the chance to serve for the country.”

Zaheer said that Misbah-ul-Haq is the best choice for the position of head coach as he knows the strengths and weaknesses of the players.

Commenting on ex-Pakistan wicket-keeper batsman Rashid Latif being top contender for the role of chief selector, the Asian bradman said that if the board was considering appointing him for the job, than he must be made independent to take decisions as he hates interference in his work.
