Imran accuses PM Nawaz of downfalling cricket

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan criticised Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif saying the PM is also responsible for the downfall of Pakistani cricket.
Referring to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) executive committee chairman Najam Sethi, in one of his tweets, Khan said that the one, who fixed the elections, has now been appointed to fix cricket in the country, adding that Pakistani cricketers lack a serious attitude towards the game and they also didn’t play with the right technique.
Khan said that an accurate analysis could help Pakistan get out of the situation, it had been facing. “The PM is responsible for the demise of cricket as it is his duty to appoint the PCB chairman whereas Nawaz always appoints the one who is close to him,” claimed the PTI chief.
Former skipper of the side that won the 1992 World Cup said that despite the fact that the players were immensely talented, they were not showing a determined attitude towards the game.
He also said that he has the strategy to improve the current condition of the Pakistani cricket side. “Here is my strategy for reforming cricket in Pakistan: One: to make cricket an institution we have to insulate it from political pressure. Two: Despite an abundance of talent, our players lack temperament & technique, leading to performance inconsistencies,” he added.
The PTI chief said that consistency only comes through quality and highly competitive cricket. “Hence, as in Australia, all talent should be concentrated in six regional teams. And the third one: Rather than wasting money on senseless expenditures, we badly need more cricket grounds,” he added. Agencies
