Former wicket-keeper and Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has said that his predecessor Javed Miandad should be appointed as the national team's batting coach.

The PCB has been on the lookout for a batting coach and had appointed Inzamam-ul-Haq as interim consultant, The Nation reports.

Stating that Miandad's knowledge and batting skills are not being utilised properly, Latif said Miandad is deserving and capable enough to give specialized training to the Pakistan batsmen and guide them in the right direction. He added that Miandad is being paid a million and the money would be of no use if someone else plays the coach instead of him.

Miandad, a veteran of 124 Tests and 237 one-day and also a former coach, had to leave his post due to issues with the board and within the team. He reportedly wants a bigger position and say in the national team. (ANI)
