#PAKvsSA: Series That Will Decide The Future Of Misbah and Waqar
While explaining how the series is likely to impact the careers and future of Misbah and Waqar, Moin Khan while speaking to Cricket Pakistan said, “They [Misbah and Waqar] will be under pressure to deliver in the series and if they do that, it’s well and good. But if they don’t, then naturally there is time for change be it Misbahul Haq or Waqar Younis. Everyone should be held accountable and I’m sure the cricket committee will review their performance.
“We have always lacked consistency in the coaching department. There have been numerous changes but we have never seen a proper plan and direction.”
