Here is a look at 3 reasons because of which Mohd. Hafeez a.k.a. Professor will either resign or he will be sacked by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after a disastrous tour of Australia and New Zealand during which Pakistan lost all three Tests in Australia and four out of the five T20s in New Zealand.

It’s a norm for PCB to look for a scapegoat following a bad tour. With Zaka Ashraf (who had appointed Mohd. Hafeez) gone, PCB is likely to put the entire blame on Pakistan’s head coach and team director in order to explain what went wrong during the last two months or so!

Mohd. Hafeez introduced too many changes too quickly. From change in captaincy to batting numbers, he perhaps experimented a little too much for it to make sense. Hence, there is no reason why he shouldn’t be blamed for the poor show.

Reports in mainstream media suggest that a number of senior players have gone against Mohd. Hafeez by now and so, the incoming senior officials in PCB are likely to listen to the players rather their coach especially, when they know that the appointment was made by someone who is no longer part of the board’s set up.
