11-May-2016 / 8:00 am
Kerala Updates: Former fast bowler, Shoaib Akhtar has given the Pakistan team’s new head coach, South African Mickey Arthur around eight months to either reshape Pakistan cricket or step down from his assignment. The outspoken and enigmatic Akhtar said he backed the appointment of Arthur who is a very seasoned and experienced coach having worked with top international teams like South Africa and Australia. “But I think in eight months time we will know whether he will make a difference or go like others before him. Because in this period we play some very important series and either he will reshape the way we play our cricket or decide to bid goodbye,” Akhtar said. He made it clear that coaching the Pakistan team could be a challenging and frustrating assignment for any foreigner because of the different cricket culture prevalent in the country. “Arthur has a reputation of being a disciplinarian and innovative coach and Pakistan cricket needs both but he has to decide when and where to draw the line,” Akhtar said on a local television channel
