Mohammad Hafeez Scorches Pakistan Board As Cricketer Turns Van Driver
Pakistan's Mohammad Hafeez has lashed out at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for neglecting its players and their requirements and criticized the new model of cricket in the country. Mohammad Hafeez's reaction to the changing system of cricket in Pakistan comes after List A and a strong contender to Pakistan's Test side Fazal Subhan changed his occupation from a cricketer to a van driver after he was unemployed following the change in Pakistan's model of cricket in the country. Sharing a video in which Fazal Subhan talks about how he went from earning one lakh a month to a mere forty thousand after the departmental cricket was closed, Mohammad Hafeez alleged that the new system had thrown thousands of cricketers out of employment and that no one was willing to claim responsibility for the unemployment of the members of the cricketing fraternity. In the video, Fazal Subhan elaborates on his struggles ever since the department was closed and how he along with many other cricketers were thrown out of their jobs.

Misbah-ul-Haq disappointed with Pakistan players
Head coach-cum-chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq is extremely disappointed with the attitude of some Pakistani players, who shy away from proper training, lack discipline and don't adhere to professional standards. Pakistan recently suffered a whitewash against Sri Lanka in the three-game T20I series at home and Misbah-ul-Haq remains very disappointed at the way the top-ranked side capitulated to Sri Lanka in front of home crowds. International cricket returned to Pakistan following the terror strikes on the Sri Lankan team bus 10 years ago in 2009 at Lahore. After many senior cricketers pulled out of the tour, a young and depleted Sri Lankan side toured Pakistan and managed to win the T20 series.
"What has disturbed Misbah-ul-Haq the most in his first assignment as head coach and the chief selector is the reluctance of some players to follow directions of the management and do proper training to keep high fitness standards," one source said. "He is unhappy that some players are just too relaxed and take training lightly and are not working on improving their cricket discipline. He has also not been encouraged by the attitude of captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed whom he feels shies away from taking responsibility when the chips are down."
