ISLAMABAD - Former Pakistan Cricket Board chief selector and head coach Mohsin Hassan Khan has shown his disappointment over the procedure of hiring new head coach for Pakistan team.

“I don’t know what was cooking in PCB chairman and others’ mind and why they ignored my offer of taking responsibility of coaching green caps once again, I had challenged them to hand over same group of players, who are on a very low and not performing, I would completely transform them and turn them into winning unit. I had made them very clear that my services are available for the national cricket team, he told The Nation on Sunday.

About declining the post of chief selector he said that he declined the offer as it was his past experience that whatever team he had picked the team management failed to get results but when he took the helm of the coaching, the same players did exceptionally well and gave the results.

Mohsin said that whatever the status and respect he was enjoying was because of his beloved country Pakistan and I had always tried to pay back by giving more than 100 percent.

The former Test opener said he had made it to the PCB very clear that he was ready to accept head coach or mentor role, as his record speaks itself as  during his stint with the national team, Pakistan remained unbeaten in eight Tests.

He said it really hurts to watch Pakistan falling to new lows. “Believe me I had never given importance to money as I always wanted to serve Pakistan cricket in the best possible manner. Former PCB chairman Ijaz Butt was full of praise of my abilities and even Zaka Ashraf asked me why I am not demanding raise in my meagre salary, I told him very clearly that money does matter but I am not bothered about demanding raise in my salary, rather I wanted to help Pakistan team to scale down new heights.”

He said he wanted to help Pakistan in highly important England tour but unfortunately people sitting at the helm of affairs don’t want my services. “I had no complaints, as I was not asking head coach job for personal gains, rather for national interest. If they feel foreign coach could get the best out of Pakistani players, my best wishes and prayers like past are always with the team.”

He also thanked to past cricketing greats including living legend little master Hanif Muhammad, Imran Khan, Javed Miandad and other greats, who always supported him and trusted in his abilities.
