LAHORE Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt has offered its Director General Javed Miandad to join the team ranks as chief coach. According to a wire agency, PCB chairman and Miandad might be at loggerheads but that has not stopped Butt from offering him the coaching job of the national team. Butts offer came at the hearing of the Senate standing committee on sports in Islamabad which was held to discuss the state of cricket and also the ongoing feud between Butt and Miandad. Miandad told the committee that Butt was ignoring and bypassing him in important matters and was not willing to give him an assignment which is in line with his status as a former Test captain and coach. Butt told the committee that he had a lot of respect for Miandads abilities as a cricketer and had previously also offered him the job of coaching the team. Butt renewed the coaching offer to Miandad at the hearing pointing out to the members that Miandads real expertise lay in his cricketing skills and acumen and he was best suited to take on a coaching assignment, a member said. But Miandad again made it clear that due to his busy schedule and domestic issues he could not take up a full time coaching assignment, the member added. He said the committee heard both the former players patiently and the Senate committee Chairman formed a sub committee which he is heading himself to try to bring a truce between the two former players. Senate Committee chairman threatens to resign The Chairman of Pakistans Senate Standing Committee on Sports on Tuesday threatened to step down if its recommendations on cricket affairs were not implemented by President Asif Zardari. The Committee had called Pakistan Cricket Board officials for a hearing on several issues including national teams humiliating performance Down Under. Abdul Ghaffar Qureshi, the Chairman of the committee, said they have put together a set of resolutions that needed to be implemented to improve the cricket set up. We are genuinely concerned with the present state of cricket affairs and there is need for vast improvement. We have made some recommendations for the President which he has to implement, an Indian website quoted Ghaffar as saying. If our recommendations are not going to be heard or acted upon then it is better we resign, he added without revealing what those recommendations were. The President is the chief patron of the PCB and appoints the Chairman of the Board directly, a practice that has come in for strong criticism in recent months. In the past recommendations of the senators have never been taken seriously. This must change, Ghaffar said. Interestingly, the Chairman of the National Assembly standing committee on sports Jamshed Dasti had also made a similar announcement after the Presidency did not bother to implement any of its recommendations which included revival of current PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt. Some media reports say that Butt recently met the President in which he was told to carry on until the next World Cup but sources said Zardari was pre-occupied with other important issues and has not taken any decision as yet. Pakistan may host SA series in Malaysia The Pakistan Cricket Board is planning to hold the home series against South Africa in Malaysia and hoping to have at least two series with arch rival India in the next two years. However, the final decision to hold the series in Malaysia is yet to be made with deliberations going on whether the Pakistan and South Africa series of October 2010 is organised in the UAE or some other country. Pakistan is to play three Test match rubber, five One-day Internationals and a T20 game. The PCB is keeping all the options open after South Africa refused to play in Pakistan over security concerns and the board is looking for Dubai and Abu Dhabi options. Apart from that the chances are that the series might be shifted to Malaysia or South Africa. But no decision has yet been made and things will clear in March as to where the two teams will face each other. Meanwhile, PCB Chairman Jjaz Butt said PCB was making hectic efforts to convince India to play at least two series against them before 2012, and if it goes through his boards financial condition could be improved. If somehow we can manage to get these series organised against India I can tell you we will recover 90 per cent of losses we have suffered in recent times due to cancellation of Indias tour to Pakistan and foreign teams avoiding touring Pakistan because of security situation, Butt told a hearing of the Senate standing committee on sports.
