Please note that none of what is mentioned in this report is confirmed by PCB but added here for discussion purposes:

Pakistan Cricket Team Senior Manager Wahab Riaz submitted on Thursday a detailed report to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) outlining the reasons behind the team's lacklustre performance in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup.

The report, addressed to Director Usman Wahla was compiled with inputs from team manager Mansoor Rana:

"The national team did not demonstrate the required level of skilful cricket that is expected at such high-stakes events,"

"There was a noticeable lack of coordination among the players, resulting in a failure to implement our game plans effectively."


Regarding the match against India:

"The players showed a lack of coordination and passion, and seemed to lose their will to win, especially in the match against India"

In terms of future improvements, Wahab Riaz offered several suggestions aimed at enhancing Pakistan's cricketing prospects on the international stage.

These included advocating for more extensive training camps for players, increased participation in domestic cricket events to bolster skills and fitness and organizing more tours to acclimatize players to varying conditions.

Samaa
 
The report is leaked but all we have is literally three quotes?

And yes, who cares what this guy thinks - he was hardly a role model for any of these players.

What credentials does he have to be where he's been put?
 
How to measure lack of coordination and passion? This is all just meaningless talk. When some concrete steps are taken to improve the Pakistan team then open your mouth Wahab Riaz.
 
What wahab was doing ? He was their to observe them only or to intervene and make them realize their role.
 
He wasn’t there as Shah Rukh Khan in Mohabbattein. It’s not his role to build bonds between players
So what does senior manager role is? To look after his family and organise/participate in paid fund raising events?
 
What wahab was doing ? He was their to observe them only or to intervene and make them realize their role.
Yes. He was there to observe. The team already had a manager. Mr. Chairman brought in Wahab as 'Senior Manager' so he can keep an eye on things and report back.

Sporting insight of the year!

PCB should look for an AI bot instead, it's a lot cheaper and won't submit an expense claim for an all inclusive family trip to the US.

The only thing in Pakistan's performance that really hurt Wahab was that his family vacation was cut short by 2 weeks.

Where was he when Babar was reappointed as captain for doing nothing.
 
How did Wahab become chief selector out of nowhere. Surely he should have spent a few years scouting and being selectors at the provincial level. His political connections got him the job and now he's blaming the team to deflect criticism
 
A sports reporter in his Vlog came out with some interesting claims today. The root cause of the conflict within the team are the betting surrogate advertisements ban in PSL and Pakistan Cricket. These companies were offering the PSL Franchises and the players very hefty lucrative amounts to wear their logos on their kits, clothes. Apparently Babar and Rizwan received an offer of Rs 300 million and Rs 250 million from these companies to wear their logos but they not only refused but also successfully lobbied aggressively with the Pakistani government to get these companies banned.

The PSL Franchises, PCB and some of the players in the Pakistani team i.e. Shaheen, Haris Rauf e.t.c. were not happy with this because they are now facing losses and hence since then everyone has conspired against Babar and Rizwan.

This is perhaps another Saya Corp planted story.
 
How come so many things get leaked? Who leaks these?

It seems like there is a mole inside.

Good story to create a narrative though

This is a true story, this was floated around contracts negotiations last year too. I have several problems with this line of reasoning, if true, and the biggest one being players using cricket as a vehicle for their moral imperatives.

Reason i think this is true is becvause chief conspiracy theorist of pakistan cricket, Rashid latif, along with his friend babloo keep angling at this.
 
It was the senior manager’s job to ensure coordination. But guess what, he was quoting players charges for attending events and taking a commission.

This story is true, but it’s being blown out of proportion. Saya needs to be banned, they are literally laughing in the faces of the Pakistan fans with these inept attempts at saving Babar and Rizwan.

The root issue has always been Zaka Ashraf’s tiff with the players over the central contracts and the captaincy mess that was created by him, then carried forward by Mohsin Naqvi.

Neither had the foresight to understand how this will break the team.
 
No need for report, I'll tell you what was wrong, Shadab, Azam Khan and Iftikhar in the middle order. Tail effectively started after fall of 3rd wicket.
 
Why are we so obsessed with Team India?

Like seriously.

I'd rather read constructive criticism regarding the USA game. That was a game we should have won even before the coin toss.

The sooner we stop focusing on India and start focusing on ourselves as a cricketing nation the sooner we will begin to overcome this mental barrier we have rap especially when it comes to major tournaments.

Oh and Wahab needs to just resign quietly.
 
“More extensive training camps” Challo jee, looks like Kakul 2.0 is coming up before the champions trophy. Rizwan will ride Azam Khan all the way to the top of K2z

Saya needs to be banned outright. I don't think they have players best interests at the center of their business model. Babar and Rizwan's game has not evolved at all but their social media footprint and the machinery behind it is rabid. Saya is running that operation.

A talent management agency with players interest as one of its core values wuld have appointed minders for their top athletes in addition to performance sounding boards and mental coches. Instead they have appolinted a troll farm.

Wahab's performance is so pathetic as a member of the selection committee that Naqvi will punish him and make him the chairman of selection committee.
 
Lol report is leaked and pcb confirms it.

Oh what a stupid organization this has to be.
What kind of organization willingly leaks information to the media to sabotage its own cricketers?

PCB has to be the dumbest and most unprofessional cricket board in the world.
 
If you're ignoring how unprofessional and deeply disturbing it is that PCB keeps leaking these things to the media, then they've accomplished their goal. Which is to take attention away from them and their own role/incompetence/failure in this whole disaster and put it completely on the players.
 
How was this guy made team manager with such fragile mentality. He couldn’t even fix his run up 4 times in that test vs Srilanka and Mickey Arthur almost jumped from balcony in anger 😂.
 
You were part of the problem mate, this ploy of distracting everybody to team isn’t going to work!
 
This will continue another 3-4 days, slowly slowly everything will be forgotten. Same people will be retained to do same things. PCB is another most corrupted board in sports for sure whether its chairman or its players.
