Zaheer Abbas demands batting coach for Pakistan

Pakistan's former Test batsman Zaheer Abbas has lamented the absence of quality batsmen in Pakistan and advised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to appoint a batting coach for the national team

Blaming the sub-standard performances of the top batting order for the devastating loss in South Africa, Abbas, also known as the 'Asian Bradman' said that those senior players in the side who have become a liability should be removed from the team, the Daily Times reports.

Abbas, who had played 78 Tests, said that the desire of every Pakistan cricketer to play in every format is the main problem for the inconsistent show of the team, adding that new talent should be included in the team.

Expressing his surprise to the fact that the players could not even cope up with the seam and movement in South Africa where the ball neither bounced much nor had the pace, the former captain added that the Pakistan cricketers appear to have become accustomed to playing only on subcontinent pitches.
