Abdul Razzaq is back in PSL 2017

0

Abdul Razzaq, Pakistani all-round cricketer is back, but this time he hasn’t made his comeback as a player rather he will be coaching the 1st season’s PSL runner-ups Quetta Gladiators. Along with all the ups and downs this guy had quite a few moments in his career that you can’t forget. I mean who can forget his innings in UAE against South Africa where he single handily chased down the target of 287 and scored 109 off 72 and also took a wicket along the way.

Though he is still available to play in the national side, Quetta have decided to give him a chance to prove his worth as an assistant and bowling coach, a new concept in cricket. However you were wrong if you thought this could come without a little bit of controversy. Because things don’t come without creating a little stir in the system, that’s how it is. Well anyways, Seems like Ian Pont, now the ex-Quetta Gladiators coach, didn’t have the knowledge that he was replaced until he found about it from Abdul Razzaq’s social media account.Abdul, Abdul Razzaq is back in PSL 2017

Pont’s twitter account said;

“I HAVE JUST FOUND OUT ON SOCIAL MEDIA, THAT I HAVE BEEN REPLACED AS ASSISTANT AND BOWLING COACH FOR 2016 PSL RUNNERS-UP, QUETTA GLADIATORS, NATURALLY, I RESPECT THE FRANCHISE’S DECISION TO BRING IN SOMEONE ELSE. THAT IS THEIR RIGHT.”

Though Quetta Gladiators gave a little hint to Pont’s agent that he might not the contract extension but it seems a little unprofessional of a franchise of such a huge league. However Pont showed great character and wished Abdul Razzaq good luck.

Anyways despite all the controversies Abdul Razzaq seems a great edition, he has had a pretty decent career as a player let’s see how good he does as a coach.
