Did the ECB even consider for a second replacing Andy Flower as England coach in the immediate aftermath of last winter’s Ashes success in Australia? Of course not. Similarly, are Cricket Australia likely to debate the tenability of Mickey Arthur’s position in the wake of the whitewash over India? Don't be silly.
But believe it or not, Pakistan’s interim coach Mohsin Khan is strongly rumoured to be being replaced by Dav Whatmore in the next few weeks despite masterminding his team’s superb Test series win over the number one ranked side in the United Arab Emirates.
Whatmore may be an experienced international coach, but why would the PCB want to meddle with the strong team dynamic that Mohsin and his skipper Misbah-ul-Haq have forged with a young team?
Mohsin has brought consistency in selection, unity, nurtured individual and team responsibility, positive results on the pitch and all without even the merest hint of scandal – all things hitherto thought impossible in the mad, bad and crazy world of Pakistan cricket.
Given how his players hoisted him on their shoulders as they celebrated their amazing victory in Abu Dhabi on Saturday it is evident how highly they regard Mohsin. The last thing this settled and talented side needs is a change at the top – Misbah knows it, the players know it and for the sake of Pakistan cricket let’s hope the PCB realise it before it is too late.
