Former Pakistan batsman Mohsin Khan threw his hat into the ring for the national team head coach’s job, left vacant after the cricket board decided not to renew South African Mickey Arthur’s contract.
Mohsin, who has remained a chief selector and also the interim head coach of the national team, said the PCB could easily find a capable person from the country to coach the national team.
“I have been offered positions twice thrice by the previous board set-up but I did not accept because I could not work with a corrupt set-up. But I am willing to work with this set-up provided they show respect to their own players,” he said.
Asked if he has applied for the head coach’s job, Mohsin said since it was a requirement he will do it but insisted the process was not necessary when appointing local coaches.
He said Pakistan team does not need a foreign coach and foreign support staff.
“What have these foreign coaches achieved when the board has hired them. What did Arthur achieve,” he questioned.
Mohsin said if he is offered any position by the Board, he would make it clear he would not compromise on discipline.
“Sometimes, I feel those people have not utilised my expertise as they know I am not corrupt and will not do any hanky panky,” said Mohsin who played 48 Tests between 1978 and 1986.
