LAHORE Former international player and ex-Pakistan A team coach Shahid Anwar remained successful coach throughout his career but is still unfortunate as he is unable to impress to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials despite having best-ever first class and national records. Talking to TheNation exclusively, Shahid Anwar said that he had big contributions in producing and introducing great cricketers which were now serving the country. I was much disappointed with the PCB who failed to recognize my services as I was coaching at club level instead of coaching the national side as I was among the high-profile coaches of the country, he claimed. He said that after his visit to Australia as a coach with Pakistan A team which performed very well during the tour and about which the Australian legend Greg Chappell said in a letter to the PCB that the Pakistan A team that visited Australia was well-disciplined and professional team. The PCB instead of assigning him the better job made the issue of his dual job as he was working with National Bank of Pakistan as a coach along with performing the duty of the PCB coach. The PCB asked him to carry on one job. He blamed PCB for having biased attitude with him as many other officials having jobs dual working as a coach with the cricket board. He said that dual job is not the matter as at international level, many of coaches and officials have dual jobs and are managing both job decently, so no issue with their double jobs but here, dual job matters PCB a lot rather the coach which is highly-qualified, professional and successful one is being ignored. If any other country has an able coach like him, they never ever will lose the deserved persons but assign him the major and important responsibility. Shahid Anwar has the honour of being the most successful coach of the country. He made every team and region successful that he joined as a coach. He joined Pindi region as a coach in 2006 and remained their coach till 2007. During his era, Pindi team won the 3-day National Under-19 Championship and runners-up of one-day U-19 National Championship. Then the PCB assigned him the job of chief coach of Sialkot region in 2008 and remained their coach till 2009. During his tenure, Sialkot team that won National Twenty20 Cup for three times and also qualified for the Champions League which was scheduled to be held in India but security concerns postponed the event. Sialkot regions Under-19 team won One Day Championship during his coaching. In 2009, Sialkot won the Quaid Trophy after a long gap which, he thinks, was the best achievement of his career as he was criticized by the PCB officials for selecting the team but later, the same team proved their worth and won the prestigious event. Then Shahid was assigned the job of Pakistan A team coach which visited Australia for the 2009-2010 season. He was the man who pin pointed the players like Azhar Ali, Umar Akmal and Umar Amin and on his suggestion, they were included in the national team and they proved their worth internationally. Shahids career is full of such achievements and the region and team he joined; he made that one the most successful. There is no doubt that he is a luckiest coach but still he is unlucky as he was not assigned the job to serve for the country and is now a days working with local clubs in the City. The lady of luck still with him as the Stags Cricket Club after meeting its President Mr Aizad Hussain Sayed and made the club various teams champions at under-14, U-15, U-16 and U-18 level. Recently, the clubs youth team won the fourth Nazar M Memorial Cricket event. He had been working in National Bank since 1990 as a player till 2004 and then rejoined the bank as a coach in 2010 and the bank remained runners-up in the One-day National Championship 2010-11. He is among the few qualified coaches in the country. He has completed Level-III coaching course from Australia in collaboration with the PCB at NCA while has done his Level-II and Level-I coaching courses from UK and PCB. He made his debut as a first class player in 1984 playing in Quaid Trophy. In his 216 first class matches, he made 26 centuries and his total score is 12,100 runs which is the world record at domestic level. His highest score is 195 runs and his world record is six wickets for two runs. Seeing his brilliant performances, media declared him Pakistani Azharuddin. The great nations always utilize the services of their legends to make progress but here in Pakistan the case is different. Instead of giving chance to Shahid Anwar to train and coach national team, he was left behind to coach at club level teams which is very unfortunate for him. Now its upto PCB either it gains from his coaching abilities for the betterment of the game or deprives the able coach of offering his services for national team.
