Karachi, June 29 (ANI): Former Pakistan Test captain Ramiz Raja has made some scathing remarks in a micro blogging website about Mohsin Khan, who was removed as the chief coach of the national team.
When a person is not capable of even walking straight under the influence of liquor, the Pakistan Cricket Board took the right decision to remove him, the Daily Times quoted Ramiz, as saying in Twitter.
Mohsin was removed as interim coach after leading Pakistan to series wins over Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and a historic whitewash of England in the Test series earlier this year.
Ramiz's hard-hitting remarks came after Mohsin claimed that Ramiz was behind his ouster, despite his successful record. Mohsin also claimed that Ramiz had influenced PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf to appoint Australian Dav Whatmore as coach in his place.
If I couldn't walk straight, I wonder how the Pakistan team rallied behind me and we managed to whitewash the world's number one Test side, Mohsin said in response to Ramiz's tweet.
Mohsin was removed because of his own actions. The decision to remove him was totally that of the PCB and I had no role to play in this, Ramiz said.
Ramiz was an advisor to the committee appointed by the board to scout and recommend a new coach. The committee, which included former Test players Intikhab Alam, Zaheer Abbas and Colonel (retd) Naushad Ali, after a long delay eventually recommended Whatmore for the job.
Although Ramiz denies having played any role in the Whatmore's appointment, insiders say Ramiz had a big role to play in it. (ANI)
