Fed up of disputes over authority between the national team's players and management, the Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to have special lectures for them to ensure there is no wrangling over responsibilities and powers.
A PCB source said the board's governing body has advised Chairman Ijaz Butt to take steps to ensure the captain, coach and manager were clear about their job profiles.
“The governing body was not happy with the dispute that erupted between former captain, Shahid Afridi and coach, Waqar Younis on the West Indies tour over selection issues. And felt this could have been the result of their job descriptions not being communicated to them properly,” the source said.
He said the PCB has now decided to have special lectures delivered to the captain, coach, manager and players before their next tour abroad.
Pakistan manager Intikhab Alam admitted there were disputes between Afridi and Waqar and this had a bad effect on the team.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has also called for better coordination between the players, management and board to avoid disputes in future. Afridi and Waqar clashed during the one-day series in the West Indies over selection issues. Intikhab confirmed the dispute arose over selection of few players.
