The upcoming T20 and ODI series in South Africa could well decide the future of Pakistan team head coach Dav Whatmore or lead to the axing of some senior cricketers from the team.
The buzz within the PCB also shows that already there’s discuss the Chairman of the Zaka Ashraf deciding to take some powerful actions when the team returns home in late March.
To complicate things for Whatmore and in fact the team management reports about issues in the dressing room have also not helped their cause. The daily “Jang” claimed on yesterday that right after the massive innings defeat in the 3rd Test Whatmore had chosen to take out his frustration on Imran Farhat who incidentally was Pakistan`s best player in the game with scores of 30 and 44.
“Instead of taking out his frustration on the senior players for their inept shows, Whatmore charged Farhat of working against the team`s interest and playing for himself.
“This led to an argument between the two with the latter reminding the coach that at least he had chosen to play positively against the South African bowlers and it had produced good results. Farhat also told Whatmore to not blame him and look at the team`s passive approach in the matches,” the report said.
One more report stated that the team management had attempted to cover the real reason for the fitness issues facing left arm pacer Junaid Khan on the trip. The report mentioned that Junaid had fallen off a water scooter during an outing and hurt himself which caused his fitness issues and kept him out of the final 2 Tests.
