The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Cricket Committee has called for the the removal of Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis as the national team's head coach and bowling coach respectively. The duo appeared before the committee where their performance as the team coach was evaluated. In its recommendation to Chairman Ehsan Mani, they agreed that the they should be removed from the respective positions. Five out of seven members of the body voted in favour of their ousting while the rest agreed on giving another chance to the duo. Misbah was reportedly criticised by the committee for the team's poor performance under his leadership. The 46-year-old was under severe criticism after the team’s dismal show against the Black Caps where they suffered four defeats in five matches. Misbah was appointed in the dual role of the head coach and chief selector in place of Mickey Arthur and Inzamam-ul-Haq after the 2019 ICC World Cup. The former middle-order batsman already stepped down from the role of the chief selector to focus on coaching and was replaced by Mohammad Wasim. Under Misbah’s coaching reign, Pakistan’s overall record remained poor as the Green Caps suffered whitewashes against Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand in Tests and T20I series.
